Hello, My name is Andy Szofran. I would like to be your fishing guide. I have been a fly tyer since age 10, a fly fisherman since age 12, and a guide since age 18. I fish around 250 days a year, mostly for trout and steelhead. I have fished the waters in the Red Lodge, MT area since 1990. More than anything, I enjoy teaching people how to fish. Many times have I put a fly rod in someone’s hands for the first time. We progress from teaching them to make their first cast, then getting a good drift, to eventually landing their first trout. Over the course of that day, and other days spent guiding them through the years, it has been very rewarding to watch them progress as fly anglers. I love to work with intermediate to advanced anglers. It is fun for me to watch the lights come on as I teach them the finer points of casting, reading the water, and getting a good drift over the fish. I fish and am available to guide year round. Our season is realistically late March through October. July, August, and September are the busy months so please call early to book your date.
See you on the stream!
