A guided fly fishing trip on Montana’s Missouri River is a definite “must do” for many anglers. Few rivers in the world possess the combination of trophy trout, massive hatches and great dry fly water. While you don’t need a guide to fish the Missouri, it certainly speeds up the learning curve for the unfamiliar. Experienced anglers have learned that a knowledgeable Missouri River guide helps them put more and bigger fish in the boat. Besides, our guides are fun to spend the day with, and they do all the work for you!


If you’ve never been on a guided trip, you should not be intimidated. Many first time customer are under the impression that guides spend every day of their lives fishing with the finest anglers in the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. We spend as much or more time fishing with beginning and intermediate anglers. A great guide can show a successful day to fishermen of any skill levels. Our guides are great.

If you’re an experienced angler with a lifetime of fly fishing experience, our guides will exceed your expectations. Tell them what you would prefer in terms of technique, and they’ll take you to the right section of river at the right time. Many of our customers fish with the same guide year after year, and tell us that we have one of the best guide staffs they’ve fished with.


Our guide staff is among the busiest in Montana, and many of our top guides are booked a year in advance. They are all professional full-time guides. They do nothing else except fish, eat, drink and think about catching more fish. They are all excellent instructors and know the river intimately. Energetic and hard working, they will put you into fish using all methods (they prefer the dry fly), and show you a fun and successful day.

So, don’t expect “salty” old guides who yell at you for blowing a cast, or a “boat ride” guide. All of the Headhunters guides are experienced, energetic, fun, great instructors and experts when it comes to fly fishing the Missouri River.
