Dan Kauffman coming tight to a riser during the fading afternoon light. Those last few days you’ll throw a mayfly to a rising trout are coming soon. Get out there.
Headhunters Fly Shop is located in the not-so-sleepy fishing village of Craig, Montana, on the banks of the world famous Missouri River. At the headwaters of America’s longest river, you’ll find one of the most prolific fisheries in the west, with incredible hatches, big trout, an extended season, user-friendly access, along with an enthusiastic and friendly fly fishing community. There’s a reason that the Missouri River is on everyone’s fly-fishing “to do” list, and many return year after year. In our fly shop, you’ll find an incredible selection of flies specific to the Missouri River, tackle to suit all budgets, the river’s best guide staff and the best customer service in Big Sky Country.
We’re guides ourselves, and know exactly what it take to make your day a success, and who can provide it. We’ve assembled one of the most energetic, professional and in-demand guide staffs in the west. And our shop staff makes sure the entire booking process is smooth.
Our shop is known for its great selection of flies, experienced and professional staff, and willingness to help you find and catch more fish. You’ll also find a great selection of gear from top manufacturers, and equipment for every budget.
We manage the Craig Trout Camp right here at Headhunters, as well as represent over 20 lodging options along the Missouri River. Whether you need a large place for your group, or a simple room for a night, we can accommodate you. Our booking staff makes sure everything is ready for you when you get here.
You can literally show up with nothing. We rent Adipose and NRS drift boats, Sage fly rods and Simms waders. Just grab some terminal gear and go. And if you just need a pair of boots or a reel, we can do that as well. Our shuttle service reliably gets your vehicle from the put-in to the take-out.
