Our fly tying instructor, Jack Brown, has been tying flies since he was 12 years old.  Growing up spin-fishing for bass and panfish in Minnesota and Wisconsin, when Jack found fly fishing, he was immediately captivated by this new form of angling.  Soon he was catching fish using his own flies rather than a Buzz Lightyear pole and meal worms.  The rest is history.  His approach to fly tying is centered around a less-is-more mentality.  Flies are meant to be fished and sometimes lost, so quick and easy ties are the focus.  With that being said, fly tying should be fun and creative!

Jack works full time at Blackfoot River Outfitters as our Assistant Manager.  He can be reached at with any questions.

"Living in Missoula affords the opportunity to fish great rivers anytime we want, but there is nothing better than hiring the pros at BRO for a refresher course, entertain visiting friends or do some serious fishing with our kids."

"Lets see…In the past 24 years I’ve fished more than a dozen different waters, from half day walk/wades to 5 day camp outs with the BRO Team and I still look forward to every trip! Nuff said."
