Activism for the survival of Bitterroot River

"Andy casts far beyond his line in the Bitterroot .
His record and passion for the aquatic insect population living under a rock at river's edge to the "big one" that rises above the river is contagious.
Yet, it was his activism for the survival of Bitterroot River with future minimum flow management and
respect for the habitat and survival of the trout that intrigued me and punctuates his so very authentic life."

Carlson and his guides are all experienced anglers

"Since 1992, we have had an excellent relationship with Bitterroot Anglers, a guiding company formed by Andy Carlson and situated in Western Montana near the town of Missoula.
The great attraction of this area is not only the unspoiled wild nature of the region of the region but also the vast variety of the seven rivers within easy reach of the town.
Carlson and his guides are all experienced anglers and familiar with the 200 miles of water to which they have access."
