A Fly Fishing Vacation in Montana

 Netting another trout on the Missouri River

A few things to think about before your fly fishing vacation in Montana.  What is the best time of year?  I believe it is when you can get here.  We have great hatches from as early as April that last until October.  That should be your time frame.  I always say that the shoulder seasons are best as we have less traffic on the rivers.  Once you have the time of the year locked down you have to pick an Outfitter, not just a guide.  What outfitter is right for you?  My suggestion here is to get on the phone, I know this is old school, and talk to the outfitter.  Both you and the outfitter will benefit from being on the same page from day one.  Know what your objectives are and know how the outfitter will help you achieve these objectives.  For example if your idea of a great day on the water is catching fish, relaxing and taking in the whole experience then you may not want the "Drill Sergeant" guide for that day.  Finally who are you going to bring with you on your Montana fly fishing vacation?  For me this is an easy one.  Friends and family.  However you may also have the need or desire to bring a business contact, a future son-n-law or maybe even a co-worker.  As long as you both have the desire to enjoy a day on the water the decision is not going to be a bad one.  When you are ready to book your Montana fly fishing Vacation feel free to let me know.  To book a trip click here.  Fishing Vacation
