Features Overview

No matter which way you look at it Fly Fishing is a journey. Our wayfarers (guides) are experts in this journey and they have devoted theirs lives to fishing, fishing more days in one year than most fish in a decade. Our guide staff has been hand picked not just for their fishing abilities but for the overall experience they will provide you.  We can promise copious amounts of laughter, knowledge and fish if you are willing to learn and listen to your guide. 

The Wayfarers 


Craig Salmon Owner/Outfitter #26894

I am a Montana transplant, originally from small town in New Hampshire where Fly fishing was a way a life. Our rivers were not as famous as here in Montana but the had way cooler names like the Piscataqua, Nissitissit and Saco to name few. I moved to Montana and attended MSU where I received a degree in community health, met my now amazing wife Ashley and commissioned in the Montana National Guard. Early on in my training during college I realized I would not be happy unless I worked in the fishing industry. I worked at different lodges throughout southwest Montana until I could pursue my dream of having my own operation. Fast forward quite a few years and we have Rowan Fly Fishing a one stop shop Guide service, Lodge and rod company.
