Sam Rogers

Having been born and raised in Montana, and to a family with a fly shop, to say that Sam has been exposed to the world of fly fishing his whole life is a bit of an understatement. Sam has fly fishing and fly tying experience well beyond his age of 18, and has traveled to fish in most of the West, Mid-west, as well as Belize, and the Bahamas. Sam has also spent some time with Team USA Youth competitive fly fishing. His love for the sport as well as most everything outdoors shows in his enthusiasm for working with guests. He is always willing to talk about the outdoors. Sam will be a Freshman at St. Lawrence University this fall in upstate New York and is looking forward to trying his custom tied flies for musky and smallmouth bass on the Grasse River. When not fishing or hunting, Sam may be found training or racing Alpine ski events at major Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah ski areas. This will be Sam's fourth summer working at the shop.

Henry Kasiske

Henry comes to Angler's West from Los Angeles, CA. Henry is a life long fisherman who has grown up spending his time fishing the eastern Sierras and the Owens river valley. He could also be found walking the concrete banks of the Los Angeles river in search of the biggest carp he could find. Henry completed the Sweetwater Guide School in the summer of 2016 with aspirations of working toward being in the middle seat of a drift boat. Henry's enjoying living in Livingston and spending time on all our area fisheries. It can definitely be a bit overwhelming when deciding where to go on a day off. Too many great fishing choices! He looks forward to working with customers in the shop and learning from those around him to achieve his goal of becoming a guide.

Gardner Imhoff

Gardner was born and raised in Northern California. At thirteen he left the West coast to attend the Eaglebrook School in Massachussetts where he got his first taste of fly fishing. After Eaglebrook, Gardner spent three years at the Westminster School where he played high school lacrosse. He then was accepted to St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY to play NCAA Div III lacrosse. While attending St. Lawrence, Gardner was fortunate to not only receive a great education, play collegiate lacrosse, but also spent quality time in the Adirondack outdoors and help run the SLU's Hunting and Fishing Club. Besides fly fishing in the Adirondacks, Gardner has been down to Chilean Patagonia, the Jackson Hole, Wyo and Henry's Fork, ID areas plying his abilities, and now learning all that the Greater Yellowstone region has to offer. Gardner is a very personable young man and a great addition to our staff.

Nate Quan

Nate Quan has been coming to Montana almost his whole life, where his family spends a large portion of their summer. He caught his first fish on the Madison River when he was 5 years old on a Scooby Doo fishing rod. He soon graduated to a fly rod and loves spending his summers in the Paradise Valley. Nate starts as a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin this coming fall, and still finds ways to fly fish in the big city – even on the bayous! He enjoys sports in general but has a particular affection for baseball and his hometown (and World Champion) Houston Astros. He’s glad to be a part of the Angler’s West team, sharing his love for the Paradise Valley, his passion for fly fishing and meeting all the people that come to the Valley to experience the great adventures it has to offer.
