Fins and Feathers Guide Service

Fins and Feathers is a fly fishing outfitter founded in 2000 as a fly shop and Bozeman Montana fly fishing guide service.

Our Bozeman fly shop quickly became the choice of local and visiting anglers, eventually growing into one of the premier retail brands in fly fishing, at the national level.

We sold the fly shop in late 2022 to our friends at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing and now focus all of our efforts on our Montana fly fishing guide service.

Sharing our passion for fly fishing in Montana has been the highlight of our professional and personal lives for almost 25 years.

A Legacy of Passion on Montana's Legendary Waters

Fins and Feathers Guide Service, established in 2000, is more than just a fly fishing outfitter in Bozeman, Montana. We are a team of passionate anglers, led by owner/outfitter Toby Swank, dedicated to sharing our love for the sport and the incredible fishery of Big Sky Country.

Sharing the Experience with Expertise and Friendliness

Whether you're a seasoned fly fisher or just learning, our experienced guides cater to all skill levels. We prioritize creating a unique and memorable experience on the water, tailored to your interests. As a small, dedicated team of Bozeman fly fishing guides, we go beyond expertise, bringing a friendly and welcoming attitude to local and visiting anglers alike.

Beyond Bozeman: Exploring Montana's Diverse Waters

Our home base in Bozeman grants access to legendary rivers like the Madison, Yellowstone, Gallatin, and Jefferson. We offer year-round guided day trips, multi-day adventures, and even complete Montana fly fishing vacations with lodging included.

But our expertise extends far beyond Bozeman. With over two decades of experience, we've guided anglers on distant Montana waters like the Bighorn, Big Hole, Beaverhead, and more. Our Montana fly fishing tours encompass a variety of trout fishing destinations throughout the state.

Beyond Guiding: Ambassadors for the Sport and Conservation

Our passion for fly fishing goes beyond the guiding service. We are deeply rooted in the fly fishing community, serving as ambassadors and product testers for top fly fishing brands. Recognized within the industry, Fins and Feathers was even awarded Orvis Fly Fishing Outfitter of the Year in 2010.

We owned and operated Fins and Feathers of Bozeman fly shop for over 20 years before selling it to our friends at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing in late 2022. This transition has allowed our crew to now focus our efforts solely on our Montana fly fishing outfitter operation, enabling us to deliver an even higher level of service than ever before.

Conservation: Protecting the Waters We Love

Conservation is paramount to us. We actively support Montana-based organizations like the Bighorn River Alliance, Upper Missouri River Waterkeepers, and Madison-Gallatin Trout Unlimited. We encourage you to join us in protecting these valuable fisheries.

A Global Pursuit: Fly Fishing Adventures Beyond Montana

While Montana holds a special place in our hearts, our passion for fly fishing has taken us to international destinations in North and South America, Asia, and Oceania. We've pursued freshwater species from the Appalachian Brook Trout to the Golden Dorado in Bolivia, and embarked on saltwater adventures in Mexico, Belize, and destinations across the Caribbean and Central America. Extensive travels have led us fly fishing in New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Alaska, and Kamchatka.
