You could take every peaceful town ever depicted on every Christmas card ever produced and none would compare to the serenity of Twin Bridges in winter. Located just above the confluence of the Big Hole and Beaverhead Rivers, Lewis and Clark passed through here over two-hundred years ago....
The town itself doesn't look too full of life anymore. After the state closed the orphanage in the seventies, businesses shut down and not much has happened ever since. But if you scrape the surface a bit you will find a varied gathering of townsfolk who would rival the lovable characters found in that mythical TV town of Mayberry.

Twin Bridges has been the obscure epicenter of splendid trout waters for decades. Although the town has escaped development that has sprawled throughout the entire Rocky Mountain Range the past ten years, some believe it is just a matter of time before the slow creep of civilization comes around the corner. And it likely will.
For us, however, living in a time-forgotten community where a handshake and trust are synonymous, these values will be ingrained in us forever. Along with its rich fishing history, these hometown values are what we hope to share with everyone who believes in Sweetgrass Rods.
