Representing our Retail cohort Toby has owned and operated Fins & Feathers of Bozeman since its inception in 2000 and continues to be the managing partner, primary buyer, outfitter, and an active guide on the waters of Southwest Montana.
“I believe that my experience and involvement in the various facets of the industry including retail sales, small business ownership, conservation efforts, customer recruitment, and relationship building will enable me to bring a unique perspective to the Board of Directors.”
According to Toby, AFFTA membership has directly resulted in his improved ability to run his business more efficiently while providing a better experience for customers and employees. AFFTA has provided the best platform to build meaningful relationships with industry partners, gain access to “continuing education” opportunities, and to stay informed on urgent conservation efforts. His motivation is to be a vocal advocate for AFFTA within the specialty retail and fly fishing guide community through his role as a board member.
