“With Ed’s persistence and knowledge I managed to put seven rainbows and browns in the net. He is very personable and has a thorough understanding of fly-fishing and boat handling.”

"When I think of flyfishing in Montana, I think of Ed Lawrence.  The two are inseparable.  From the merry band of brothers that he gathers as guides for a day in God's country to the hearty feasts spent at the table riverside in the tall Montana grasses, to the mastery of the hunt for the trout that he imparts to his guests, it just doesn't get any better than this.  Author, humble sage, weaver of many tales of days spent on the Madison or the Yellowstone, friend:  Ed brings the essence of the Last Best Place to life."



“I look forward to my annual fishing trip and always have plenty to talk about the rest of the year. It is always fun, relaxing, and oh yeah, lots of beautiful trout.  Although I require retraining, the dude has patience.”

"If you want a no-fuss, no-muss fly fishing experience on the waters in the Bozeman, Montana area, Ed's arrangements are the way to have it.  Ed and his guides provide top-notch instruction and expertise, interesting conversation, and delicious lunches.  Catching fish is up to you, but Ed will try his level best to make sure you do!  And I really, really mean it!"

"Ed & Tim. You have given me back my piece of mind. You both are true professionals.  I'm fishing, I'm calm, I'm happy.  You Gentleman reflect greatly upon your skill, your craft, the fishing community as a whole, and the wonderful state of Montana. Your passion and dedication are attributes rarely seen in these times. I wholeheartedly thank you for allowing me to share this experience."

Ed, you made the planning for this trip easy and painless.

Bob MEd, you are the man.

“While I’ve fly fished for many years my first experience with the Bozeman area was with Ed’s outfit.  Ed and his guides are some of the best guides I’ve had the pleasure of fishing with.  Every aspect of the trip package was well planned and Ed and his crew provided an outstanding experience.  I recommend his outfit to anyone who wants a quality experience with highly experienced and competent guides.”

“From one fishing guide to another, I thought that I would let you know that the trip that I hosted far exceeded my expectations.  The three days were spectacular. I plan on having an even larger group for our return next year.”
