"My son has spent two summers with Pro Outfitters in Montana and can't wait for summer to return.

I would like to say that I found the care and attention of the staff to be excellent. My son gained a knowledge and love of the outdoors that he has carried with him and has truly helped shape him into the young man he is today. He has become an avid angler and knows that the experience is about a whole lot more than just catching the fish. Pro Outfitters is more than a summer adventure experience, it is a family.

Yesterday, as we were discussing our various vacations and places we've been, he remarked, "You know Mom, those two weeks in Montana were the best two weeks of my life!" I think that says it all."
