Andy Carlson, a great guide and a real character

"I go to different places so I rely upon the guide. Up on the Bitterroot I go with Andy Carlson, a great guide and a real character.
I love his purple haze think he originally tied it and has a patent on it..."

Activism for the survival of Bitterroot River

"Andy casts far beyond his line in the Bitterroot .
His record and passion for the aquatic insect population living under a rock at river's edge to the "big one" that rises above the river is contagious.
Yet, it was his activism for the survival of Bitterroot River with future minimum flow management and
respect for the habitat and survival of the trout that intrigued me and punctuates his so very authentic life."
