Matt Heron definitely qualifies as one of the coolest guys in the Fly Fishing world. He owns a top notch guide service, is a road warrior for the F3T and is the director of Fly Fishing Services at the Resort at Squaw Creek. I have had the chance to talk with Matt a couple of times and he is a stand up guy. Did I mention his guide service tag line: Old School Traditions New School Attitude. What impresses me most about Matt is how seamlessly he connects all of the sub-pockets of our fly fishing world. He is just as comfortable teaching a newbie to cast as he is guiding an old timer trying out some new water for the first time. Matt also runs a program for kids called Creek Creatures. With four options for kids I have yet to find a better program out there. If I didn’t live across the country all of my kids would be enrolled! Did I mention that he has the best fly fishing video I have ever seen on YouTube. You can see it and the post we wrote about it here.
Matt is definitely a guy you need to be following on facebook. Expect to hear more about Matt in the future and if you are ever in Matt’s neck of the woods look him up and book him.
