The Guides

Sweetwater Travel has made its name by exploring wild, exotic fisheries and by associating itself with professional guides for whom guiding is a profession, not a summer job. The Montana fly fishing guides are all independent contractors or work for our outfitting partners in each destination.

Dave Goodhart
We first met Dave when he limped off a helicopter on the Ponoi River in 1992. Since that time, we have had the pleasure of fishing with Dave all over the world. Dave has managed camps in Mongolia, Russia, and Alaska.  He is presently the head guide at Royal Wolf lodge in Alaska.  Dave starred in ESPN’s Fly-Fishing America in 1994 to 1995 and has entertained fishermen throughout the world with his talent, his wit, and his unending supply of trivia. When not fishing, Dave lives in Missoula.

Matt Ramsey
Matt has guided for our Mongolian partner since 1998. There is probably nobody who understands Taimen better than Matt. To date, he has taped the largest fish we have landed in Mongolia. As a die-hard fisherman, Matt has also guided in Alaska, and presently operates his own business, Two Dudes Flyfishing in Eugene, Oregon. Matt lives with his wife in Eugene, Oregon when he is not surfing the tubes of Oregon, California, or Mexico.
