Dan Gard spent 18 years as a fishing guide and has been tying flies for 25.
He began tying flies because back then the selection was limited to what was marketed. He wanted more, so he learned everything he could about aquatic entomology and put it to use on the vice. It
was natural that he decided to take it up a few notches and became a guide. It allowed him to fish many of Montana’s rivers and get paid for it. Quite a deal. The Missouri, Smith, Big Hole and Madison have all entertained him and his clients. He had to retire from the guiding a few years ago but he still ties and hits the water whenever he can.
