What Angler's West Clients Have to Say
~BROOKE, THIS WAS AN OUTSTANDING FLY FISHING EXPERIENCE. MATSON HAS DEFINED THE TERM “SERVICE” AS BOTH AN OUTFITTER AND GUIDE. THE OTHER GUIDES AND ASSOCIATES ON HIS TEAM EXEMPLIFY MATSON’S PRECEDENT.

THANKS AGAIN AND FOR SURE YOU WILL SEE  MY BUDDIES AND I FOR ANOTHER VISIT!   D. HILLIS, N.Mexico

~Just wanted to let you know how much Brooks enjoyed the fishing a couple weeks ago.  He had such a good time with Dan, caught lots of fish, came back with many good photos.  He has fished with several guides in different parts of the country and commented that Dan was the best he’s ever had the pleasure to fish with! As you may recall, this was my xmas gift to Brooks.  It was perfect!  I believe he is busy planning his next trip to Emigrant!  Thanks for your hospitality!         J. Jarrett, Missouri


~Hello my friend, I'm proud of the fact that after just one trip with someone that I never met before, I'm able to address this e-mail to MY FRIEND. Anglers West was one of the best experiences I've every had in my life. You made my trip effortless, from arranging my lodging right down to the special sauces put on our sandwiches. The attention you customized to fit each one us was matched by none. Your knowledge of each of the 3 rivers we fished, and the knowledge of the fish in those rivers is definitely one of your best assets. Your other guides that work for you do you proud as well. They carry on the dedication that show your customers as well as you do. Because of this, I'll be booking a trip every year (if possible). L Yerion, California


~Hi Matson, I've just e-mailed Chris to tell him again how much we enjoyed our guided trip with him, and I wanted to let you know that we also had a great time with Craig and Justin. It was fun seeing the lower Madison and experiencing different methods of trying to catch those elusive fish! We all had fun and learned a few things in the process. We had a great time, and all three guides were terrific. We would definitely look forward to booking trips with them again and would recommend your service to friends. Thanks for a fun Montana experience!

~Matson, Steve was a great guide. He helped me with my fishing with reinforcement and kind words. We had a lot of laughs both days and my wife thought I was going to suggest adopting Steve the way I raved on about how great he was. We really look forward to coming back, hopefully soon!

D Rhoades, Georgia


~My husband and I recently spent three days in Montana fishing with your guide service. We thought Steve was an excellent guide and we had a great time fishing with him. He is a super nice guy and very patient. We also were impressed with his good conservation skills. I am a novice fly fisher and my fishing skills went from zero to much improved with his assistance. We also liked Justin a lot - they make a good team. Our thanks to you and Steve and Justin for giving us a great fly fishing experience in Montana. We'll be back.

~I just wanted to say thanks for the great experience and all the great fish we caught. You have a very upscale operation. Larry and I enjoyed that very much. The vest didn’t fit too well so I'm sending it back -it must have been all of those micro beers that they have in Montana. The day on the Yellowstone was the highlight of the trip. Hope to make this an annual trip, thanks again and keep up the good service.

~Matson, I want to thank you and Angler's West for a terrific experience. My first time fishing in Montana could not have been more memrable. there are serveral thoughts that I would like express. After the first contact with you I knew that I had landed a good guide service. I've been flyfishing for 20 some years now, and have had the opportunity to fish with a dozen guides in the East. Although they were certainly fine fishermen, your expertise as a fly fisherman and knowledge of the area we fished are as good as I've had the pleasure to fish. You need to kow how much I appreciate your feed back and explanations on my questions to you over the months prior to our meeting. Also the website is a reading I look forward to. The information, pictures, and content will always be a favorite. Finally, I enjoyed your company- it was a pleasure to fish and meet with you. I truly look forward to returning to Montana for the fishing and the beauty of the Big Sky state. Rest assured, I look forward to contacting you for a trip that will renew the experience again.

G Heiser, Illinois


~Matson, Chris was our first guide flyfishing, so we don't have a reference point per se. However, we loved that he took a genuine interest in us and specifically about teaching us beginners something about flyfishing. We definitely give Chris a 5+ on your scale of 1-5 and recommend him with hopes that we can fish together the next time we are out.
