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.
Running Line is a blog about life on the Missouri River and beyond. We want to keep you up to date on what’s happening on the river, but we also want to share with you the ups and downs of running a fly-fishing start-up business in this highly competitive market.
I hope you enjoy reading and continue coming back for more.

Like most small business owners, I have been immersed in the seemingly ever-evolving provisions and procedures of seeking assistance through what will undoubtedly be the biggest financial and economic challenge of my lifetime. Like all of those who have had [...]
