Finding the seam between currents, and threading your fly just there, is the difference between playing with Pisces and enjoying the view. As hard hunting and fishing fathers, we’re stalking a similar sweet-spot – the balance between passionate pursuits and happy home-lives. Sometimes we nail it, sometimes we miss.

A proud native of Charlottesville Virginia, Matt served a six year corporate sentence in Major Metro USA before finding his way home to Wyoming. He met, married and made a son with his wife in this open country and it’s got its claws into him. Most of his career has been spent in outdoor education and wildlife conservation. Now, when not hunting, fishing or playing in the mountains, he’s writing about it for assorted national magazines.
With a tendency to dive in with gusto, Steven puts the same energy into raising his two kids as he does into fishing, training gun dogs, or chasing elk (although he recognizes children are ultimately a bigger commitment). Raised on a family owned guest ranch in Montana, Steven is a Westerner who has been criticized for having terrible East coast geography. He calls Bozeman, Montana home.
