About Us


Big Timber Fly Fishing was Founded in 1986 by professional guide and outfitter Channing Welin. 

In January of 2009, Chan sold BTFF to his neighbor/guide, George Anderson

Chan has been chasing wild trout on the Yellowstone and Boulder Rivers since the mid 60’s. Chan is Boulder Valley resident living accross the field from George. His first drift boat was a Keith Steel boat that came off of the Deshute River in Oregon.

Chan has passed a vast amount of area knowledge gained from many years of fishing the Big Timber area to George.


George Anderson owns and operated Big Timber Fly Fishing from his residence in the Boulder Valley.  He and his boys live within a stones throw from the underfished Boulder River.  George and sons Colter (7) and Bridger (6) can often be seen playing along the banks of the Boulder River and most recently realing in and netting fish!  

George a Montana Native, grew up fishing the Sun and Teton Rivers near Choteau, MT.  George started fishing at a young age, catching his first fish at 4 and his first on a fly a few years later.   George a perpetual outdoorsman looks forward to sharing his passion for the outdoors with folks.  He is eager to provided walk/wade and rafting trips on both the Yellowstone and Boulder Rivers as well as fly casting instruction for individuals or small groups.
