Rental gear selection from Fins & Feathers includes rods, reels, waders, and wading boots. Bozeman fly fishing is typically well suited for 5 and 6 weight fly rods matched with adjustable drag reels and floating fly lines. Breathable waders are typically necessary from mid-September through mid-June. Felt-soled wading boots dramatically improve traction and should be worn with waders and are recommended for wet-wading in the summer months. Whatever your rental gear needs might be, our Bozeman fly shop has you covered.
Prices below are per day which is essentially 24 hours and after hour drop-offs can be arranged with advanced notice.

Late fees will be assessed on a per-day basis, automatically charged to the credit card used for a security deposit.

If you know that you are going to need to rent any of the above gear, advanced notice via email is highly recommended. It is helpful if you can give us an idea of your wader size as well as your shoe size prior to your arrival as well. You will want to bring heavy socks for under your waders and purchasing neoprene booties is highly recommended for wet-wading.
Payment in full is due at the time of pickup, late fees will be assessed automatically on a per-day basis. All equipment must be returned in good, working condition. Renters are responsible for repair and/or replacement fees, plus shipping charges that we may incur. This typically applies to broken fly rods which are covered under manufacturer warranties and vary between $30 - $90 depending on the fly rod model. Wader tears greater than 2" are considered to be destroyed and the renter is responsible for the full retail, replacement charge in addition to the standard, daily rental fee.
