Eric Thorson

Eric is a Co-Owner of the Sunrise Fly Shop on the Big Hole River in Melrose, MT.  Most of Eric’s summers are spent either manning the oars and creating memories on the Big Hole and Beaverhead rivers, or hanging out in the Sunrise Fly Shop giving advice and talking fishing.  When the trout season comes to an end in Montana, Eric heads south for the winter.  Eric divides his winter vacation between chasing Roosters in Loreto, BCS and stalking giant brown trout in Patagonia.

“Splitting my time between Montana, Baja, and Chile, I have a vast collection of different rods that I use throughout the year.  The one consistency amongst all the rods is the Hatch Reel attached to all of ’em.”
