Based in Bozeman, Montana, Jake Wells is Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures’ program director for all U.S. West programs, including the largest of those offerings – Montana. Originally from Virginia, Jake moved to Idaho in 2005 and started his career in the fly fishing industry at Henry’s Fork Anglers, one of the most well-known destination fly shops in the Western United States. After leaving Idaho at the beginning of 2013, he relocated to Utah and worked as a sales representative for some of the top brands in the industry. Jake is an unbelievable source of knowledge on all things having to do with fly fishing, and he now travels all throughout Montana and the Western U.S. pursuing his passion and helping others to do the same. In this episode of Waypoints, Jake shares his knowledge and advice on planning a trip to Montana, including information on when to go, where to fish, chasing hatches, finding the best guides, and avoiding the more popular (and at times crowded) waters.
