About On The Fly

Andy Elser Montana Fly Fishing Guide My name is Andy Elser and I am a fifth-generation Montanan. My family moved here in search of gold in the 1860s. Growing up in Montana, I fell in love with the outdoors and took advantage of every opportunity to be outside. I grew up fly fishing the plethora of trout rivers that Montana has to offer.

I have been guiding fly fishing on the Bighorn River since 2007. There are many reasons I have chosen to focus on the Bighorn River, but I mainly love its high desert beauty, as well as the high-quality production of trout anglers, can experience.

Aside from my love for fishing and hunting, I am also a high school wrestling coach. I have been able to use my experience as a coach to do more than place my clients in front of excellent fish on the river, but also coach them in their fly fishing techniques. I would love the opportunity to coach you through your next fishing adventure in Montana. See my rates here and contact me to book your next trip.
