About El Western

Opening in 1948, El Western played host to those first discovering the sport of fly fishing and the beauty of the Madison River Valley. Although ranching was the primary occupation of the residents of Ennis and the surrounding area, many notable guests came to spend their summers enjoying the growing sport of fly fishing in this "exotic" location.
