About Lawrence, Edward

Along the way he took up flyfishing as a hobby, and now combines his passion for flyfishing with writing for major magazines. He also authored Frommer's Guide to Montana and Wyoming, and Frommer's Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. He lives in Bozeman, Montana.
