Butch Burdick came to Wyoming in the rowdy era of ski-bumming and cowboy-ing. A native of Utah and graduate of Utah State University he moved to Jackson and began to set Wyoming roots. He guided fly fishing and scenic trips down the Snake River as well as running whitewater in the days of gushing snowmelt. After moving around the Rocky Mountain West with his family, exploring and looking for the perfect place to settle down, they found Wyoming again. From fishing and mountain biking to sculpting fish and raising a family in the heart of the Rockies, he continues to love this place.
Butch’s many years of fishing and boating experience allow him to share Wyoming with genuine ease — above and beyond the vital fishing lesson. Butch’s aesthetic endeavors are also aligned with the natural world.
What kinds of flies? When do they hatch? Where do you find those big fish? How about area history? Just ask, but don’t miss the next strike and be sure to keep a tight line.
An old fishing philosopher might have summed it up well when he said,
carpe pisci --- “seize the fish.”
