An educator at heart Chad Williams is an experienced and charismatic guy who brings an appetite for adventure and fun to a day on the beautiful western streams of Montana.
At a very young age Chad picked up his first fly rod and discovered a lifestyle and passion that has followed him throughout his life. This also led him to tying his own flies which he prefers to use with his lucky clients. Since 2000, Chad has guided on Montana Rivers including the Missouri, Clark Fork, Blackfoot and Big Hole Rivers, but he spends a lot of his time on the breathtaking Bitterroot River which is his home waters.
A master on the oars, Chad can take you to the best fishing spots and keep you there, even on those tricky runs. Chad’s passions also includes teaching where he has also pursued a career in education and coaching. He is a Montana history teacher and head coach of the Hamilton High School Wrestling team.
Chad takes the skills he has learned in the classroom to help even the most inexperienced angler feel at ease and confident. In his free time he’s out on the river testing new flies and trying out new techniques to keep the experienced fly fisherman coming back for an unforgettable experience. Connecting people with Montana, "the Last Best Place," is the overriding objective of both Chad’s guiding vocation and teaching career.
Tim Parks grew up in Washington State and started fly fishing on the Yakima River and desert lakes as a young boy. Growing into a passionate fly fisherman, he’s been pursuing wild fish ever since. Tim came to the Bitterroot Valley in 1981 and fell in love with the river and the surrounding mountains.
Following a career in the US Army, Tim and his wife are living their Montana Dream. He loves nothing more than sharing his passion for the river and the fish with his clients. Tim loves to teach both kids and older beginners the art of casting a fly and is equally adept at guiding the most accomplished Angler. Spending a day on the river with Tim is always a great experience and he is eager to share his knowledge of the river, our valley and the history of both.
Tim is an avid outdoorsman and also suffers from the disease of pursuing steelhead and large trout with a spey rod, and chasing elk in the high country.
Robert grew up in a hunting and fishing family in Central Oregon, a stone's throw away from the fabled Deschutes River. He began fly fishing at age 9, and began tying flies for his family's sporting goods store soon after. After high school, Robert moved to Missoula, MT in 2003, to chase trout, ski, and earn a degree in Music Education from the University of Montana.
Since then he has been happy to call Montana home, having spent the last decade residing in the Bitterroot Valley. Robert and his wife are happy parents to a rowdy four year old girl and the loyal family dog (Fisher). He has been guiding on the rivers of Western Montana for nearly a decade and loves to spend the day with both experienced and beginning anglers alike.
When not on the river Robert is a school teacher for the Stevensville School District (MT)), teaching K-5 General Music to over three hundred and fifty students every week. He brings those skills as a professional educator to the river as well, and loves to share the sport of fly fishing with anyone who has a desire to learn!
