Small Stream Montana Guided Fly Fishing 3642

Why Choose Us?

There are a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a Montana fly fishing outfitter or guide in the Bozeman area. Just about all of the outfitters and fly shops in Bozeman do a really great job, especially when compared to other areas of the country. It is the little things that set us apart, here are a few key attributes that differentiate Fins and Feathers from the rest of the operations in the area.

  • Our core guide staff is made up of fly-fishing professionals that live, work and fly-fish in Southwest Montana, year round.
  • We fish hundreds of miles of water within an hour’s drive of Bozeman including the Gallatin, Madison, Yellowstone, Jefferson, and Missouri river watersheds.
  • Our guides know which waters to suggest and where to fish based on weather, water conditions, hatches, angler skill, overall crowds, angler fitness, and the time available per day.
  • Our Bozeman fly fishing guides are patient and work exceptionally hard with anglers of all skill levels and levels of interest.
  • We stick with our core group of fly fishing guides day in and day out; only reaching out to various independent contractors that work for a variety of outfitters when we are entertaining large groups.
  • Our deposit and reservation policies are “customer-centric” and fair; we aren’t in business to make money based on cancellations well in advance of scheduled trips. During the early days of COVID in 2022, we were quick to issue full refunds to everyone that had made deposits while most of our competitors only offered partial credits for rebooking.

  • Our reservation and confirmation system is simple and straightforward, allowing you to manage your reservation and track your payments online.
  • Our guides have well-kept, quality equipment, gear, and vehicles - we can be flexible in meeting you just about anywhere in the area.
  • We have a long history of providing a terrific, Montana fly-fishing guide trip experience around Bozeman and were the recipient of the 2010 Orvis Endorsed Outfitter of the Year..
  • We have been under the same ownership, management, and outfitter for 23 seasons in Bozeman.
  • We have fished around the world on guided fly-fishing experiences ourselves and have been guiding Montana fly-fishing trips since 2000.
