Dan Rust – Dan is a young man with varied passions. We came to know him through our own love of the outdoors, and over time saw the qualities that set him apart. He is pictured here having just helped Mrs. Tow land a nice Madison River brown trout. Dan is a living representative of the saying “less is more”. He steadfastly refuses to speak about himself despite his native intelligence and pursuit of higher education, which he employs to teach others. His modesty, intensity, honesty and loyalty make up the package that we have come to respect and about which we care the most. Our patience in looking deeper inside allowed us to see these qualities that have lasting value, but are not always easy to indentify in someone at first glance. This is what inspires us. http://www.blue-ribbon-flies.com/trips_and_guides/guides/dan_rust
Oliver and Chris Wood – These are two of our favorite people. Their band, The Wood Brothers features rich and soulful songs about life, love, and the passing of loved ones. It was their music that initially attracted us, but the bonds run deep since we both lost mothers to ALS. We are grateful to know them, deeply admire their talent and humility, and ardently turn others on to their music. This is what inspires us.
Matt and Russlyn Seiler – These are two wonderful people who captured our hearts many years ago. They are fun, caring, and generous souls whose lives have intertwined with ours. While we and our children have been the beneficiaries of their thoughtfulness on many occasions, it is their relentless drive to help others and engage their children and friends in the mission that distinguishes them. This is what inspires us.
