Stillwater Anglers Outfitters

About Us

Chris retired from serving worldwide for 23+ years in the Marine Corps infantry and settled down in Columbus, Montana. In 2003 Chris decided to parlay his passion for the sport of fly fishing into a business, getting his guide’s license and creating Semper Fish and Guide. In 2008, he went on to achieve his outfitter’s license, which allowed him to expand the scope of his Columbus based guiding business. In 2011, Chris opened Stillwater Anglers in Columbus; expanding his outfitting business to include a retail fly shop. It’s very apparent that Chris has brought with him the same commitment and dedication that served him in his previous career to his new business.

Chris has been active with several fly fishing and conservation related organizations in Montana. He has served as Chapter President and Board Member for Magic City Fly Fishers, the local Trout Unlimited Chapter. He has also served on the State Council for Trout Unlimited and on the Board of Directors for the Fishing Outfitters Association of Montana.

Chris has a passion for the sport of fly fishing and enjoys nothing more than sharing a day out on the river with his clients. As owner of Stillwater Anglers, Chris is dedicated to providing personalized customer service and helping his clients enjoy a complete quality fly fishing experience from their time at the Fly Shop to their time on the Montana rivers.
