Return the ResourceIf you have been around the shop, or if you have seen the GDO logo on hats, shirts and stickers, you may have wondered about the “jumping fish” that appears in our logo. Craig grew up in the outfitting business, and his mother helped with a lot of the artwork for the family business. The fish coming out of the water and going back in signifies “Return the Resource”, which means to return the fish that we catch back to the river, or catch and release fishing.


Craig has grown up learning and incorporating this motto in his own fishing practices, which led him to pursue a degree in Biology and Fresh Water Fisheries.  He enjoys sharing his knowledge of our natural resources, especially during a day of fishing.

Great Divide Outfitters takes pride in sharing our local Montana rivers with our guests, and helps them to understand why it is important to maintain and conserve the rivers for future generations. We are a proud supporter of Trout Unlimited and the Big Hole River Foundation. The efforts of these organizations help to protect and preserve our local fisheries, wildlife, land, and rivers.
