Eric Paulson – Head Guide
Eric is the senior outfitter/guide for the Yellowstone Angler. His fly-fishing career began in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up in an outdoor-oriented family, Eric spent his time fishing and hunting in waters and terrain ranging from the Pacific Coast to western Montana.
In 1989, Eric moved to Bozeman, Montana to chase a college football dream with Montana State University. Eric found this dream to be short-lived and found the exploration of the greater Yellowstone area to be his passion. His guide experience includes the vast majority of rivers and streams that are in the infamous 300-mile circle of southwest Montana. In addition, Eric has guided steelhead in Idaho and currently guides on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula for wild Winter Steelhead. Eric has spent substantial time fishing various waters around the globe including Christmas Island and in New Zealand.
Eric has had photos appear in a number of outdoor publications and websites varying from the Yellowstone Angler website to Fly Fisherman Magazine. In addition, Eric has spent time working with National Geographic Television on a developing series and is a fly designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants. His flies include the Flutter Bug, Tick, and the Hot Head Ray.
