    Mark Raisler

          Mark has been fishing his entire life growing up on the Skagit River in Mount Vernon Washington. While he did not seek his soul to angling until his late teen years he was brainwashed by his family pursuits early in life. Mark arrived to Montana's Missouri River in the spring of 1992. Tying commercial flies, giving casting lessons, trout bumming, sleeping for seasons in his tent and ultimately gaining employment in '97. Mark became a fishing guide in 2000, an outfitter in 2005 and opening Headhunters Fly Shop in 2008 with business partner John Arnold. There is no place he would rather be claiming a physiological attachment to the Missouri River. You can find Mark guiding, chatting on the porch at the shop, or manning the BBQ pushing hot dogs on innocent Missouri River bystanders everyday but Christmas.
