Eric Ederer

Lead Guide / Owner

When I was a kid I dreamed of making my way through life with fly fishing as its focal point. I have forged friendships with many of our terrific clients, met life-long angling companions, met my wife and started an awesome family. All of this because I love to fly fish. I suppose I owe Montana a great deal of gratitude as well. After 17 years of guiding in Montana I still love the whole game. It has changed over the years and yet my commitment remains the same: create the best Montana fly fishing experience for every client, every time. That is my personal guarantee. RFO, Renegade Fly fishing Outfitters invites you to come and see how many ways Montana touch your soul. I’m still counting!
