Taylor was born and raised in Missoula, with Rattlesnake Creek as his play ground. Taylor started working in fly shops in high school and became a Missoula Fly Fishing Guide when he was 18. Taylor’s knowledge of the local rivers has been forged over a lifetime on the water. As soon as he was big enough to hold a fly rod Taylor has spent all of his free time chasing the trout of Missoula. When Taylor isn’t on one of Missoula’s rivers you can find him hunting ducks and geese with is beautiful wife Dusti and Black Lab, Willow. A day on the water with Taylor is filled with information that you can only get from someone who has spent their entire life in the area. Just don’t ask Taylor for his secret Morrell spots.
