Re: Guide job
Becoming an Independent in Montana takes a truck and boat, client rods and reels along with a stack of flies and knowing the water.
I would suggest looking for a lodge or guest ranch type job to get started. Then move on from there. They have the equipment, and will help you get some days under your belt. Stash your tips and then buy a boat when you can. It takes a bit to get set up, but once you do its fun for awhile.
