Father-Daughter Fly Fishing in Montana with Harley Viera Newton

June 13, 2013
Filed in: Fly Fishing, Travel

Brown Trout - Harley Viera-NewtonIn honor of Father’s Day, we join avid fly fisher and Filson fan, Harley Viera-Newton, on a family fly fishing tradition in Montana.


Every summer I go on a father-daughter fly fishing trip to Great Falls, Montana. We’ve been going for five years now, and each year we stay at the same little lodge run by our fishing guide, Arnie. We wake up at 6am every day, eat a big breakfast, and then spend the day hiking out to beautiful rivers. Most of the week we don’t see another human on the rivers all day. The fishing is great and we are surrounded by endlessly stunning nature. Sometimes we are joined by badgers, beavers, and elk – but luckily no bears yet. Can’t wait until this summer!

Fly Fishing Montana


  • How lovely! I came across this when I googled “father daughter fly fishing”. My dad used to fish for cod off the coast of Newfoundland years ago. Now he’s retired but he still seems to love all things fishing. Although he has never gone fly fishing though, I think it would really suit him. So I decided to start trying how to learn how to fly fish a few months ago. I do a lesson about once a week with a guide/instructor (I had no idea it could be so complicated)…and the end goal is not only to learn how to fish myself….but to learn enough to be able to teach my dad the basics so we can go on trips and fly fish together. I think it would mean the world to him.

    Thanks again for sharing that lovely story (and the great pics!) You have renewed my commitment to learning (it was difficult at first – mostly because I had no idea there was so much to it). But I read your story and know that it will be worth it in the end.
