What is The Wild Adventure?


For the past 35 years, we have been hosting fly fishing adventures for guys on an incomparable 1200-acre ranch in the Madison Valley. While we love fly-fishing and the magnificent Madison River, the best part of these trips, by unanimous opinion, are the deep and significant conversations that take place when guests share their life stories with one another! ?? Conversations about the significant and important issues of life.....and about God..... this isn’t a Bible study....or the corner church’s men’s, it’s the real deal....rough, wild and totally authentic!....and like almost everybody who has been on one of these will say that it was one of the greatest experiences of your life!
