Anchored Podcast:

Dan “Rooster” Leavens is unforgettable. Today he’s the head guide and owner of Stonefly Outfitters, but there’s a whole lot more to the Montana local. Dan’s early career in the Coast Guard took him away from New England and put him on the pacific coast, where he developed an addiction to steelhead. After years of guiding in Washington and Alaska, he fell in love with a little fly shop in Montana, where he settled down and stayed. In this episode of Anchored, Dan reflects on his colourful past, sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly.
