Event: SRC Membership Meeting- Matt Klara of Big Sky Anglers


Join Zoom Meeting

Meeting ID: 893 9674 3695
Passcode: 184991


We have the pleasure of hearing from Matt Klara from Big Sky Anglers. Matt is originally from Rome, New York. He was introduced to fly fishing by his parents at a very young age and began his fishing life on the Madison River in the early 1980s. He spent the summers of his youth living in an RV with his folks at Campfire Lodge, between Hebgen and Quake Lake. The fishing bug bit Matt hard, and he continued the family tradition through his late teens and early 20s – living in campgrounds, fishing, and eventually working at fly shops and guiding throughout southwest Montana and Yellowstone National Park.

These days, Matt lives in Helena with his wife and son, but still makes frequent trips to West Yellowstone throughout the year for fun, shop events, and to lead Trout Spey guide trips in the Park. He is our go-to source for technical information regarding all things Spey, a reliable source for Missouri River fishing reports, and one of our in-house stillwater fishing fans.

Matt will be tying some of the flies that have worked for him in local waters. If there are any questions or requests, Matt will be taking those throughout his demonstration.
