We rarely highlight any of our guides, we think they’re all awesome. A professional crew that does a huge number of trips every year, with smiles that last until mid-September (mine used to last until early June).
If NFGuide Max Mattioli looks familiar, it’s because you saw him behind the counter in the shop during the 2014 season. A Helena native, Max was thrown into the guide mix kinda-sudden-like this year. Pretty rare that Headhunters rolls a complete rookie guide, but we rolled with Max. He responded like a boss and had a tremendous year, doing over 100 guide trips (he’s still going strong), and receiving great feedback from his customers.
The above shot is Max and client with a slab Rainbow last week on the Missouri River. Dialed in for sure, Max is. You can check out his Instagram feed to see some great photos of trout and other species he’s wrangled from local waters.
Wait to go, Rookie.
If you’re interested in booking Max for this fall, winter or next year call the shop. Most of his clients from this year are doing the same.
