Our Hatches Create A Buzz. Literally.

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, our shop is at the center of a great fly fishing community, and a reach cast from some of the best hatches in the West. Our fly 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.


“The Missouri River below Holter Dam holds trophy trout and produces amazing hatches. Our season is long by Rocky Mountain standards. You can have great fishing from April through November, and it’s not too bad the other 4 months. There’s a funky little trout town that revolves completely around fly fishing. These are a few of the things that drew us here, and keep us attached to the Missouri River year after year. If you’ve been here, you know. If not, then you owe it to yourself to experience this world class and unique fishery.”
