John Perry’s Montana Fly Fishing

From novice to fly fishing expert,
we craft your perfect experience

John Perry’s Montana Fly Fishing has the set the standard for fly fishing outfitting and guiding for over 25 years. As the originator of several nationally-known flies and with thousands upon thousands of days on the water in pursuit of trout, there is little debate about who to call the patriarch of Missoula fly fishing.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned fly fisher, we have the guide and fishing experience that fits you best.

All of our guides have spent many seasons on the water and, if you ask them, most will tell you that they have chosen lives of total poverty in exchange for fishing time. When not guiding, our guides can be found around the western hemisphere pursuing finny critters of all shapes and sizes on their own.

It is this passion and dedication that has made our guides the finest in the fly fishing business and will give you a Montana fly fishing experience filled with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!

Please feel free to call or e-mail us today to learn more about our services, rates, rivers and the availability of our Clark Fork River Lodge.

Looking for a New Home on Wheels?

Well, since I have a nifty “new to me” truck now, I decided to start looking around for an upgrade in homes on wheels…..  I think I found it!

It’s a Jayco Jay Flight travel trailer, 24 ft. length and has a very nice slide out dining area, as well as a sofa!

Since I’m currently in a 19′ house with no slides, I have a feeling those of you who full-time RV know why I am rather excited about slides and sofas!!!  Little houses on wheels don’t have the space for those items…..

I’m also in love with the second interior color offered.  “Cinnamon”! My present home is “blue”, very nice, but rather masculine, though it has lent well to the remodeling I’ve done in here over the past couple of years…  Still, it’s time to consider a change and cinnamon has always been a favorite of mine!  It’s warm, yet not so gender oriented.

Take a look, I hope you agree I’ve got my eye on the right one for me!

Customer Experience Management (CEM) Overview

The aim of customer experience management is to strategically manage your organization’s interactions with customers in a way that ensures customer retention, growth, and profitability.

Oriel Incorporated’s approach to customer experience management solutions has two fundamental components: the Voice of the Customer (VOC) and customer value analysis (CVA). With these tools, we integrate advanced survey research and statistical analysis techniques to help you understand the key drivers of customer satisfaction to improve your organization’s competitive position.

Voice of the Customer (VOC)

The Voice of the Customer (VOC) refers to understanding the expressed and latent needs of customers that your product or service can satisfy. Voice of the Customer data helps to identify the Critical to Quality elements (CTQs) that need to be addressed in process improvement efforts or through product or process design.

Process Management Overview – Stata-Matrix

Do any of these situations apply to you?

    • Wondering why improvements do not happen as quickly as you hoped.
    • Feeling frustrated that improvements do not really change your bottom line.
    • Thinking that you have poured resources into improvement initiatives without adequate returns.
    • Asking why improvements don’t “stick.”
    • Expecting a lot more than you are getting out of your improvement efforts.
    • “Pushing” improvement in your organization without adequate management support, resources or funding.
  • Your company wants to start a process improvement effort but is afraid that although considerable costs, time, and resources will be used, there will be no sustainable gains a few years down the road.

If you are in either of these situations, you are not alone. Several recent surveys have shown that while companies still place a tremendous emphasis on process improvement, only a very small percentage of organizations systematically pursue and sustain these efforts over a period of time. All too often, what begins with a bang fizzles out in a few years with clearly demonstrable gains that have not been sustained….
