Fly fishing in Lodges in Alaska, Brazil, British Columbia, Mongolia, Bahamas, and Montana

Sweetwater Travel Company is located in Livingston, Montana. It was founded by the three Vermillion brothers, Dan, Jeff and Pat and Ron Meek 1995 to build and manage a best of class fly fishing lodges around the world.  The "travel" component of the name was to reflect the Vermillion's interest in building a booking company run by fishermen to help anglers make knowledgeable choices to insure their fishing vacations were as good as they could be. 

After 15 years in the business traveling to remote countries around the world, Sweetwater Travel Company has helped build and create some of the best known lodges in the business.  These include the Royal Amazon Lodge in Brazil, Copper River and Royal Coachman Lodge in Alaska, the Lower Dean River Lodge, Steelhead Valhalla Lodge and Suskeena Lodge in British Columbia, Mangrove Cay Club in the Bahamas, the Harrison House in Montana and the Taimen operations in Mongolia.  In all cases the lodges reflect a commitment to providing the best fishing possible for that particular species.  As an outfitting company, we understand better than anyone in the booking agent business, that choosing the right outfitter is the single most critical decision to planning a fly fishing vacation.
