Dandy Reiner grew up among the rivers and streams of Montana. She started
fly fishing as a child along with her sister, under the tutelage of their
father Dean Reiner, a long time Montana Outfitter. After completing her
education at Montana State University, earning a degree in English
Literature, she went to work in her father's fly shop in Livingston,
Montana. Dandy now owns and runs the business, her father still tying flies
for her. She takes pride in owning one of the few woman owned fly shops.
Hatchfinders Fly Shop is a full service shop that offers guided trips and
they tie every fly they sell. Dandy ties Dean's innovative fly patterns and
has studied under the Japanese master fly tyer, Koichi Kawai. When she
isn't tying or fly fishing, she is putting her college degree to use by
composing poems about tying or fly fishing. More information about Dandy
and Hatchfinders Fly Shop in Livingston, Montana.

A native of PA, Dave has been involved in guiding fly fishing since graduating from Colby College in 1993. After a childhood of fishing the waters up and down the east coast, moving west seemed a logical step and after 3 years of guiding in the Wind River Range and Jackson Hole area in Wyoming, he moved to Bozeman where he now lives with his wife Cory and sons Jack and Charlie. Dave operates his own outfitting business (Dave McKee Fly Fishing LLC) and spends more than 200 days on the water each season. During the off season, he ties flies for Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone as well as for the fly selections that are available through his website www.davemckeeflyfishing.com. His unique cork strike indicators are available at many flyshops around the country or on his website as well. Dave is a signature tier for Umpqua Feather Merchants, on the board of Directors for the Fishing Outfitters Association of Montana ( FOAM), a member of the Scientific Anglers Pro Staff, is a director of the Montana Fly Fishing Guide School, and served as the outdoor columnist for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle for 10 years.

Willy discovered his passion for fly fishing at the early age of six. Shortly thereafter, he began tying his own flies for trout, salmon steelhead, and shad. Willy found his love of lake fishing early and has continued to fish stillwaters, becoming known far and wide for his expertise and knowledge. He has fished all over northern California, Idaho, and Montana. From famous blue ribbon trout rivers to high mountain lakes and reservoirs, from farm ponds to the big lakes, Willy has guided for over twenty years in Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Willy has continued to develop his fly tying skills and is currently a signature tyer for Brookside Flies out of Denver, Co. He is the Assistant Manager of Montana Troutfitters of Bozeman. He uses any number of Echo fly rods to ply his craft, including our spey and switch rods and is currently working on the new design of Airflo fly lines for special presentation on lakes. Spey casting may be a new approach for lake fishermen in the US, but in Europe it is a common practice allowing for long distant casts from the shoreline.

  • Tail: Squirrel body fur
  • Body: sized wire and color of choice.
