Who Is Gallatin River Guides
We've been in business for over 33 years and simply put: we are the real deal when it comes to Montana fly fishing. Some great folks exist in the fishing biz in Montana. We just think we are the bee's knees. The cat's meow. The cherry on top.
We love fishing dry flies to uneducated trout. We seek-out hatches and enjoy the challenge of head-hunting. We don't always use strike indicators, but if we have to, we get after it. At times we also Tweet, Facebook, and Trip Advisor.
Our owners, Pat and Brandy Straub, grew up here--no other fly shop owners in Big Sky can say that. Our manager, Jimmy, is as legit as they get. Our guide staff ranges from old to young and our shop staff knows hard work and great customer service.
