From Montana Fly:
Montana Fly Company announces a partnership with Frank Smethurst and David Allen at sales representative group Comb Enterprises to drive sales in the Southern Rockies region.
Smethurst, from Telluride, Colorado, has hosted the Trout Unlimited television show called “On the Rise” and has starred in numerous fly fishing films. He began his fishing career at the age of two. He started tying flies at age eight, and began selling flies at age 12.
“I began a consulting and repping career in this last decade and my dedication to fly tying art and the need to represent only the finest companies is what brought me to MFC,” Smethurst says.
David Allen grew up on the bass fisheries of Kentucky and the trout streams of the Rocky Mountains. His intimate knowledge of cold and warm water fisheries in the Southern Rockies paired with his unwavering passion for fly fishing quickly landed him a spot as one of the top guides in the region. He converted this success to his partnership with Smethurst at Comb Enterprises.
“It was a pivotal time in my life,” says Allen. “What I learned when I was guiding became, over time, the building blocks of Comb Enterprises. The overall development and success of the company has become quite consequential of the information I learned back in Telluride and being able to apply it to something Frank and I built is priceless.”
Allen spends his extra time working with non profits, playing an integral role in environmental education and land conservation in the Telluride Region.
