Fly Shop Staff
The 2021 season here in Bozeman is shaping out to be the busiest that we have ever seen in our 20 years of operating in the Gallatin Valley. We are currently accepting applications for part and full-time retail sales positions for the '21 season with an anticipated start date between March 1 and May 1, 2021. Ideally, we are looking for outgoing candidates with local fly-fishing experience and a basic familiarity with modern gear/techniques of regional significance. Previous retail experience in the fly-fishing or outdoor industry is helpful, but not required. We invite anglers of all skill levels to apply for these positions - there is no need to feel like you have to check the "expert box" to apply! The ideal candidate will also be interested in helping with classes and events hosted at our "Side-Channel" location as well as our Fly Fish Truck in 2021.
We are looking to add a handful of core guide staff members for the 2021 season here in the Bozeman area. Applicants must have several years experience rowing on the waters around Bozeman including the Yellowstone and Madison (upper and lower) rivers in a drift boat. Our guides are independent contractors and required to be licensed by the Montana Board of Outfitters, carry their own liability insurance, have commercial vehicle coverage, and have their own vehicle/boat/trailer/gear packages. In order to be considered for a core-guide position, candidates must have open availability from July 1 - September 30, 2021 at time of application. First-time guides are welcome to apply following completion of Fins & Feathers Guide School in spring 2021 (email us for more information). All licensed guides are invited to be included in our "pool" for consideration as overflow candidates if the core-guide program is not for you. Please note that 95% of our trips are float trips, so please don't apply if your focus is on wade trips.
Benefits of being a Fins & Feathers Core Guide
Interested in a part-time, mostly remote job in the fly-fishing industry in 2021? We are hiring support staff to help coordinate our outreach events which include guided trips, schools, classes, and Fly Fish truck events. The ideal candidate will have exceptional organizational and communication skills. The primary responsibility is to act as a liaison between the fly shop, guides, and our customers to ensure that our lines of communication are open and efficient. Typical daily duties will involve administering the assignments of guided trips and coordinating logistical communications between guides and clients. In addition, this administrative role will work closely with our Outreach Director to coordinate staffing needs with a variety of events and classes throughout the year.
