OUTFITTER JUSTIN HARTMAN
Licensed Outfitter & Guide Justin Hartman started Tight Line Adventures in 2008. A patient teacher and skilled angler, he has an unmatched understanding of the rivers and places of Southwest Montana.
Cory has been a licensed Montana guide since 2007 and now holds his U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s License, enabling him to guide our clients on nearly any piece of water in the state.
Director of Guest Services Sarah won’t be your fishing guide anytime soon, but you will occasionally see her smiling face around Expedition Lodge. With three kids in tow, she never tires and provides the much needed feminine touch to everything at Tight Line Adventures.
GUIDE BRANDON FERGUSON
Licensed guide Brandon is a Dillon native whose passion for the outdoors and fishing permeates his everyday life. He traded up from his beloved “Snoopy” fishing pole - which he still had - to a fly rod at the age of 8. After lessons from his dad at “Maiden Rock” on the Big Hole he landed his first trout on a fly rod.
Licensed guide Travis is a native Montanan and always a kind and patient guide. He loves taking both new and experienced anglers down the river and feels especially at home on the Beaverhead River. He is never short of enthusiasm and has built a solid following of clients due to his ace guide skills and easy going personality.
Licensed Guide Nic has been chasing fish as long as he can remember. As if drawn to the water by some mysterious force (some will argue his Aquarius birth, others a familial gene) he has always needed to be as near to water as possible. A skilled and caring guide, Nic has infectious enthusiasm and is just flat out fun to be around.
