Captain Drew Miller, Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop/Guiding Waters, Montana

Drew Miller has been guiding the rivers of Western Montana for more than 20 years.   Drew’s home Missoula, Montana is the confluence of three amazing trout streams. The Clark Fork, Blackfoot and Bitterroot rivers are home to West Slope Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brown and Bull trout that are all wild to these waters. Each of the rivers has it’s own character and classified as freestone. The most famous of our rivers is the Blackfoot and was the basis of Norman Mclean’s book “A River Runs Through It”. Having three great rivers in one area makes Missoula unique in that there are over 200 miles of river to choose within an hour drive of downtown. The Missouri river is also one of the rivers we fish during the spring runoff period. The Missouri is a world class, tailwater fishery that is home to hard fighting Rainbows and big Brown trout. Drew also charters a boat out of Key West, Florida for about 5 to 8 weeks a year for the Tarpon migration. Key West flats give you great access to both Gulf and Atlantic migrating tarpon.

The Florida Keys and Central America have also become a large part of his career. Each year he hosts several weeks with adventurous groups of clients fishing different saltwater destinations. Drew specializes in fishing for trout, carp, pike, tarpon, bonefish, permit and snook, He prides himself on introducing others.
