Chris Eyer is a 4th generation Montanan that packs his string of 9 mules through the Bob Marshall Wilderness and the Bitterroot Wilderness for outfitters, the U.S. Forest Service, a couple of nonprofit trail crew organizations, and of course for his friends. He moves just about anything you could imagine: hay, grain, gear, tools, food, lumber, rafts, gravel, rocks, concrete, portable toilets, people, mattresses, dead animals (bear, deer, elk, goats, moose, sheep) oars, coolers, kayaks, and the list goes on… In designated Wilderness areas the only way things can be moved is either by human or hoof. No machines. No wheels. Anything that can’t be carried by a human goes in on the back of a mule or horse. And he uses a Whiskey Leatherworks belt to hold up his pants on every trip!
Casting flies around the northwest, while spending some time behind the lens, Wesley calls southwest Montana home. He’s been living outside Bozeman for the last 3 years and is originally from S.E. Idaho with family there for 5 generations. If you can’t find him on a local river then it’s probably September and he’s chasing elk around the mountains with a bow.
Wesley works year round in the fly‐fishing industry and guides during the summer. After purchasing a D‐slr at 16, he gained a passion for photography and has been carrying a camera since. Being that Montana is blanketed in snow for more than half the year, Wesley also works as an EMT during winter months. You can find his various works and keep up with him on instragram @Wesleywhiteproductions.
A Montana native, Travis Bradford has been roaming around the outdoors since he was knee high to a grasshopper. Growing up an avid skateboarder in Northwest Montana, at an early age he began shooting photos and video documenting the action. Fly Fishing has since taken over his life and he dedicates as much time to the river as possible with a camera and rod in hand. A published photographer whose work has been featured in This is Fly Magazine and Revive Fly Fishing Journal. Travis is also a student at the University of Montana, pursuing a BFA in Digital Filmmaking with a Minor in Art. He currently is working for Outside Media and Trout TV making video magic. It’s a pretty sure bet that you can find Travis on the riverbank of a Western Montana river, fly rod in hand searching for the ghosts that live in these waters.
