When it comes to western fly-fishing, there are few places like Bozeman, Montana. The regional fisheries include the Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, and Jefferson rivers as the “headliners.” As one starts to look closer, however, there are dozens of small streams and rivers with names that are unfamiliar to even the most seasoned western trout fisherman, each having their own uniqueness as a quality wild-trout fishery. This diversity of accessible, wild-trout waters is what sets Bozeman apart and makes for a wonderful location to both learn the basics of fly fishing and improve your skills on the water.
Fins and Feathers of Bozeman is a full service fly shop and fly fishing guide service located in the Gallatin Valley; their guides and staff are the instructors for the Orvis Fly Fishing School in Bozeman. The Bozeman-based guide service was recognized as the “2010 Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Outfitterof the Year” as a result of their commitment to providing exceptional guided fly fishing experiences. Teaching anglers of all skill levels how to fly fish and improve their skillson the water is their passion.
