Montana, Wolf Creek
BioOriginally from Athens, Georgia, Zandy Zechella brings his own brand of southern charm to the Rocky Mountains. These days, Zandy is a true Montana Troutlaw and spends his time hunting big, selective brown trout on his local waters, The Missouri River as well as its tributaries, The Sun, The Dearborn and The Smith.
Zandy has been fishing and guiding in Montana since the late 90s. The very first time he fished The Missouri River he was at once addicted to its discerning fish, sophisticated hatch system and gorgeous scenery – a rewarding combination for any angler. Prior to his self-imposed exile to the wild west, he was a guide for four years in Eastern Tennessee on the Hiwassee River. Like the Missouri, the Hiwassee is both a challenging and beautiful tailwater.
Zandy puts his money on the Scott G2. He believes it is without question the perfect rod for the ultimate adrenaline rush…landing a monster tailwater trout on a small dry fly with fine tippet. In slick, skinny water, of course.
Any given day on the river with Zandy is certain to include some southern hospitality, a lot of big fish (or at least big fish stories) and loads of laughs. Not to mention a little outlaw country music on the drive home.
