We Know These Waters...and These Fish!
Dan "Rooster" Leavens
Rooster is on the pro staffs of Simms, Scott Flyrods, Hatch Reels, Clackacraft Drift Boats and Mossy Oak Camo. An ex-USCG rescue swimmer, he’s rebuilt diesel engines, called in bull elk, and knows how to grill a mean “cowboy coffee” steak. Those that know him are certainly aware of his belief that there is plenty of room in Montana for all of God's creatures – right next to the mashed potatoes. All that said, he tends to specialize in fishing where "there aint nobody". Between Montana Trout, Washington and Alaska Steelhead he spends over 250 days a year on the water. When he is asked how The Stonefly is so successful year after year, he promptly blames it on his crew.Most importantly, he knows how to listen, communicate, and he’ll remember your name on a handshake.
