Running Line is a chronicle of our journey, both personally and as a company, into the world of Montana fly fishing. Part fishing report, part sales and promotions, and part personal soap box, Running Line is a showcase of words and images used to keep our readers informed and entertained.
I am blessed to be able to live in this amazing place and to do what I love for a living, and there’s nothing I like better than sharing my world with those who share my passion for fly fishing and for the rugged beauty of Montana.

I hope you enjoy reading and continue coming back for more.
