Travis Rydberg has over 30 years of experience fishing the famed waters of Yellowstone country.  A fifth-generation Montanan, Travis was raised fishing the same freestone rivers of southern Montana as his great-great-grandfather.  Travis began his career in the fly fishing industry in 1997 at Bud Lilly's Trout Shop.  In the spring of 2000, Travis moved to Island Park, ID where he guided for Trouthunter on the Henry's Fork for 16 years.  In 2016 Travis joined his friends at Big Sky Anglers.  We couldn’t be happier to have him on board with us!

Travis employs a methodical yet creative approach to angling and is blessed with the patience and knowledge to effectively guide these renowned waters, welcoming true beginners and seasoned veterans alike.  Travis is a great choice if you desire to refine your angling skills while targeting large trout in the company of a courteous and devoted instructor.  

Travis spends his winters in Montana attempting to create art and counting the days until the rivers begin their swell.
