Mike Smith

Mike Smith was born and raised on a ranch in a small town in northwest Wyoming. My grandfather was Eldon Kinghorn who was a well known fly fisherman and an accomplished fly tier. He began teaching me at a very young age the skills of fly fishing spring creeks in Wyoming and occasionally we fished Yellowstone Park and Idaho. I first began Stillwater fishing on Monster Lake and Newton Lakes close to Cody, Wyoming. I helped guide on Monster Lake for about 10 years. My wife and I owned and operated Mike Smith Outfitters in Greybull, Wyoming for the past 20 years where we did big game hunting and summer pack trips to high wilderness lakes in the Big Horn Mountains. I moved to Idaho in April of 2004 where I took the job as the Wildlife and Recreation Manager for Eagle Ridge Adventures, a division of Riverbend Ranch. I managed Sheridan Lake located near Island Park where we offer catch and release fly fishing for trophy rainbow trout. I have recently returned to guiding elk hunting trips in the fall and will continue to guide fly fishing trips with BS Flies during the summer months. I love guiding and teaching others the art of stillwater fly fishing.

Lynn Scott

Lynn started fishing when he was old enough to hold a pole and fly fishing since age 10. He has spent over 40 years fly fishing the waters of the West. Some of his favorite water as of late has been the Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake and the famed waters of Henrys Lake in Idaho. He, along with a partner a few years ago acquired the guiding business BS Flies & Tackle from the legendary Bill Schiess. Guiding has given him a great opportunity to teach, have a little fun, and to photograph nature. He has fun watching people when it all comes together and “fish on”. He loves Stillwater! Along with being a Stillwater guide he is a published photographer/writer and you can see his work in various fly fishing publications. As a youngster he spent many hours with his father learning various aspects of fly fishing and photography. However, it wasn’t until the last few years that his interest in writing and photography blossomed. He has commented that he is “far from mastering the art of photography and Stillwater but he says he is a little closer than he was yesterday”.
