  • Wayne Egbert

    Wayne Egbert brings over 25 years of guiding experience to Bighorn River Resort. While growing up in Hardin, Wayne began fishing the Bighorn at age eleven so it was only natural he started guiding at age 18. Over the years, Wayne has gained extensive knowledge of the Bighorn fishery. He is also known for the fly patterns he creates. Wayno’s Cotton Candy is a staple in most Bighorn guide’s tackle boxes. For Wayne, there is nothing more rewarding than teaching the art of fly fishing to a new fisherman and getting them “hooked” on the sport. When Wayne is not guiding, he can be found chasing a bugling bull elk during archery season, hunting big bucks or doing his part in keeping predators at bay during trapping season.

  • Tyrell Blake

    I grew up in Idaho fishing and hunting my whole life. My passion for fly fishing began when I was 16, but even before that my Dad taught me everything I know in the mountains and streams where I grew up. I came to Montana to guide fly fishing in 2016 on the Bighorn. I made lots of friends and met my wife Ashley. Now I continue my dream job of guiding with a family of my own in Montana!
