Revered By Guests, Feared By Fish
I have been fly-fishing for over 30 years mostly, warm water and saltwater. I currently live in San Antonio, Texas, and usually fly-fish at the coast with a guide for Red Fish. I come out to Montana 2 to 3 times per year. I have been fishing with Pierce for over 10 years. He is my favorite fishing guide! We have fished the Bighorn, Yellowstone, Missouri, DePuy, and a bunch of others. We have floated, waded, camped, hiked; you name it. We have nymphed, fished dry flies, and fished streamers. Pierce always has the perfect set up for his clients: fly rod, fly line, flies, and weight. He even has his own custom strike indicator (the balloon). I have caught both numbers of fish and big fish with Pierce. When he nets a 20+ inch brown trout, I don’t know who is happier me or Pierce. It is a blast!
I always wanted to be fisheries biologist. Pierce has a degree in biochemistry and can get downright detailed and technical about trout and their behavior. His knowledge adds a whole level of fun to the fishing experience. I was having a tough time catching fish on the DePuy spring creek. When I finally landed a fish, Pierce gently removed some stomach contents using a suction device. Pierce examined the “bugs” and select a tiny midge pattern. The trout was released unharmed, but maybe a little hungry. I subsequently caught a nice fish on almost every cast. It was awesome.
Pierce is lighthearted and we always have a great time. I have recommended my friends to Pierce and they also have had a great time. I can’t wait for my next Montana fishing adventure with Pierce.
