Why hire a Montana fly fishing guide?

May 11, 2018

A day on the water with our Montana fly fishing guides has something to offer for every angler visiting Montana, even if they don’t think they are an angler yet. Simply put hiring a guide is the best way to maximize your time and fly fishing success in Montana. The more elaborate version follows.

Fly fishing in Montana is what our guides live for. They are all patient and courteous professionals committed to making your Montana fly fishing experience your best yet. What this means is that whether you are a seasoned angler or new to fly fishing, our guides cater to your expectations and have something to offer for everyone. 

We were all new to fly fishing at one point. This is something our guides haven’t forgotten and teaching new anglers is our guides’ great strengths. Many of our clients visit Montana for something more than just fly fishing but want to take part in an angling adventure. For these clients hiring a fly fishing guide is the best way to learn the sport from an experienced professional, have a positive and safe outdoor experience, and simply enjoy a fun day on the water in Montana. And at the end of the day that is what we feel fly fishing in Montana should be: fun. 

For the seasoned anglers out there, safety, learning, and fun are also great reasons to hire a Montana fly fishing guide on your next trip. Safety is an often overlooked reason to hire a guide but that while we never hope anything bad happens, it can. The many different rivers of Montana each present different challenges for anglers including rocks, rapids, high flows, and variable weather. Our guides are all experienced professionals that consider these factors into each day’s fishing plan to ensure client safety above all else.

We feel fly fishing is a life long learning pursuit. Ask any of our guides and they will agree. Hiring a guide is a great way for even the most seasoned of anglers to continue the learning process. Our guides are all expert fly fishermen in their own right as well as great teachers that can work for you to polish your cast, learn a new technique, or present new fly fishing challenges. We also offer focused educational trips for anglers looking to improve upon their fly fishing and rowing skills.

Do we all fly fish to have fun? I hope so! Fun can mean something different for every angler, but our guides can make sure that goal is met. For some anglers fun is just having a nice relaxed day on the water with good company and great fly fishing. For others it is getting on the water early, fishing hard all day, and staying out late. Whatever your definition of fun is, our Montana fly fishing guides work hard to make it happen. If you just need someone to row you down the river, we can do it. If you need someone to put together a multi-day fishing package that includes a variety of rivers, we can do it. If all you want to do is fish dry flies for rising trout, we can absolutely do it. Your fun is our fun. Consider hiring a fly fishing guide on your next Montana fly fishing trip.
