Matt is one of the fishiest young dudes in the business, we are glad to call him a friend. An early tester of Rock Treads, Matt has stuck with us and is happy to join our team of Ambassadors helping spread the good word about Rock Treads. Read a little more about Matt below:
A passionate outdoorsman since birth, Matt Reilly grew up fishing and hunting the Blue Ridge Mountains and rolling Piedmont of his native central Virginia. The owner and head guide for Matt Reilly Fly Fishing, Matt is now a full-time fishing guide and author based on the world-class waters of southwest Virginia, where he specializes in float trips for smallmouth bass and musky, and wade trips for wild trout in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, where wild brown and rainbow trout are the rule rather than the exception. Matt speaks regularly at a variety of venues on a range of topics relative to his fishing and guiding targets. His writing has appeared in several national and regional publications like Eastern Fly Fishing, American Angler, Fly Tyer, Southern Trout, Hatch Magazine, and Virginia Wildlife, and in The Daily Progress in the form of his weekly outdoor column, Adventures Afield, which has seen more than 350 editions. He is also an ambassador, adviser, and team member for Reilly Rod Crafters, a family-owned rod company building premium, American-made fly rods.
