Chad Williams is a guide and manager of Total Outfitters, a fly shop and guide service in SW Montana. Total Outfitters works with anglers of all skill levels and has recently been focusing more on introducing trout spey to the areas they fish, particularly the Bitterroot River. In this episode, Chad walks me through trout spey, a technique I’m familiar with in theory but have never tried. We cover why someone would want to use trout spey tactics, different fly options and how to fish them, lines and leaders, how to move through the water, and much more. Near the end, we also discuss one of Chad’s favorite topics: what it means to be an angler. Outside the guiding world, Chad is a 7th grade Montana history teacher, wrestling coach, and avid fly tyer.
