Montana’s Best Fly Fishing. The World’s Funnest Fly Shop.

Welcome to Headhunters. Our Fly Shop is the center of angling activity on Montana’s world-famous Missouri River below Holter Dam. Located in the riverside village of Craig, we’ve got a great shop, the best guides, a fun town and a fantastic river. Our shop was built on customer service, and our team is here to provide you with a memorable experience. Whether you need guides, gear, info or lodging, you’ll get the best of it at Headhunters. Combine our great hospitality with the best fishing Montana has to offer, and you’ll understand why our customers return year after year.


Our Spring Special is on now! Full day guided trips with the best guide staff on the river for only $300. We also have discounts on lodging available. Our Spring Special runs through the end of April, but fills up every year.


“Our lives revolve around the river and the fish that live in it. There’s not much else to do in this part of the world. When our staff isn’t guiding or working, they’re fishing. Watching the river and hatches. Trying to figure out new patterns and techniques. All of them are full time professionals who can help make your fly fishing trip to Montana a success. Headhunters is also the only outfitter owned and operated fly shop on the Missouri River. We’re not booking agents. Our shop staff and guides are detail oriented. Making sure each and every customer – whether they’re guided or on their own – has a trip that exceeds their expectations is our primary focus.”

Here is our entry for the ORVIS “Down the Hatch” Fly Fishing Festival/Film Fest held in Missoula, MT. Pretty funny acting from our own Mark Raisler and Jared Edens. Watch these guys shred the banks of the Missouri River and stick some fish in the process. Fishing is supposed to be fun(ny), right? Enjoy. You can check out more of our videos:
