About Me:
I have been a flyfishing guide for the last ten years, I grew up in Bozeman Montana and still currently reside there. I thought it would be the best thing in the world to fish out of a boat I built from scratch. Kind of like catching a fish on your own tied fly but on a much larger scale.

Boats I own:
just the one I am about to finish, had a Yellowstone Drifter for a while.

Film: Where The Yellowstone Goes

I was involved in a film two summers ago where we floated the Yellowstone River from Gardiner Montana to its confluence with the Missouri in North Dakota, nearly 700 miles.  My woody and I and cast and crew made a cool environmental documentary film of the journey called "Where The Yellowstone Goes"  You can watch it on itunes movies, or find a copy at

yea, I'm building mine from scratch also. MBB boats are beautiful, but mine won't be, I'm just not going to flow coat and sand that much. Also, this is my first one, and the last thing you want to do is try to make the first of anything you do perfect. That's just a lesson in frustration.

Thanks for posting pics of your boat. I'm going to attach my thwarts the same way you did. I think Jason chases the elegance aspect of his boats too much for a builder of my talents. I need to over build to help compensate some both for my building ability, rowing skills and attentiveness on the river.

I see you're in Bozeman. I got as far as Rock Creek last year. I'm going to try NW Montana this year. I want to try to see how far I can drag my ass up the SF of the Flathead. I know I won't be able to use the boat, but it's got to be a great trip. Ever fished up that way?

Welcome to the site. Hope you like what you have found on here. Are you building a Tatman boat??? I built my very first boat. What an experience tha was. I managed to turn it over the second time I rowed it. Had to learnn it all on my own. It was worth it. Good luck...
