     Growing up in southern Idaho, Brant split his time between fishing small mountain streams, float tubing on desert reservoirs, and learning to fish the hatches on Silver Creek. He received two degrees at the University of Oregon and thought he was headed to an academic career, but his passion for fly fishing took over.  After graduate school, Brant took over the Orvis West Coast fishing schools program and later worked with Mel Krieger as co-director of Mel’s school program. He moved to Montana in 1987 and has worked there since as a commercial fly tier, fly shop manager, casting instructor, and outfitter/guide.

 

     Brant has fished for trout all over the western US, with a special emphasis on spring creek and tailwater fisheries.  During his years in Oregon and northern California, he learned to fish for steelhead, Pacific salmon, shad, and striped bass.  His salt water flats experience includes fishing in Belize, the Bahamas, and the Caymans.  Other fishing travel includes trips to northern Canada for pike and Tierra del Fuego for sea run browns.
