Headhunters Fly Shop is located in the not-so-sleepy fishing village of Craig, MT, on the banks of the world famous Missouri River. Below Holter Dam, you’ll find one of the most prolific fisheries in the west, along with incredible hatches, an extended trout fishing season, and excellent user-friendly access.
Headhunters was built with those principals in mind. We understand that information is the primary reason you enter a fly shop. Our veteran shop and guide staff is committed to helping you have a great trip, improve your skills, and increase your fly fishing knowledge.
Swing-Season is on! If you haven’t tried swinging the Missouri River with a spey rod, you’re missing out on a fun and super effective method we use during the “off” season. And if you embrace the “minimalist” philosophy this is right in your wheelhouse. A rod, handful of flies, spool of 10b. tippet, and warm socks. That’s about all you need.
SPEY CLINICS AND GUIDED TRIPS!
Headhunters offers free monthly spey clinics, but you must sign up in advance. If you want to get out with one of our guides and swing the Missouri for a few days, winter rates apply, and we supply all the equipment if you need. Except warm socks.

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.
EVERYTHING YOU NEEED TO KNOW ABOUT FISHING, STAYING, PLAYING, AND HANGING.
