Nicholas Calabro joined our Guide Staff in Spring of 2015. We are delighted to have him as part of the Firehole Community! Growing up on Connecticut’s Farmington River, Nicholas spent his childhood stalking trout on bicycle and exploring the local water around his neighborhood. He traveled west in 2009 to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies at the University of Utah, spending most of his time presenting flies to the selective trout of the Provo River and pursuing the native cutthroats of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountain Ranges. In the Winter Nicholas enjoys skiing Montana’s back country and spending time on the vise refilling his fly boxes.
Rowan’s latest blog post on his website Fishonphoto – “A beautiful Brown Trout caught on the Madison River last week. Salmonflies, golden stones, caddis, green drakes, PMD’s, and even more caddis, were on on the menu last week as the Madison was displaying all its summer glory. Fishing a river when it is in its prime season is a key to success in the Yellowstone region, and the first two weeks of July just might be the best the Madison has to offer all year.”

We are thrilled to have Matt join us this year! New to Firehole Ranch for the 2014 fishing season, Matt Breuer is finding some solace in the prospect of a few consecutive months on US soil. In the 15 or so years since college, Matt has guided anglers through the globe’s most storied fisheries; from Alaska’s Bristol Bay region to the tailwaters of the Southeast US, from Argentina’s Rio Grande to Russia’s Ponoi River, Matt has been fortunate to make a life in fishing. Most recently, he’s been involved in spearheading a grassroots project in Guyana, South America. This project aims to assist an Amerindian community in establishing a sustainable, destination fishery for Arapaima, the world’s largest scaled freshwater fish. Despite the remarkable opportunities that Matt has had to fish and work throughout the world, he is most at home on the oars, working the seams of a Western trout stream. He looks forward to joining the community at Firehole Ranch, and sharing his wit and humor with a host of new friends and anglers.
