Headhunters Fly Shop & Guide Service
Missouri River Montana Fly Fishing
Montana’s Missouri River is famous for it’s world class scenery and trout fishing. We’re fortunate to live in a state blessed with wild trout and beautiful rivers. In our opinion, none compares to the Missouri below Holter Dam. The incredibly rich insect population, long season, clear water and big trout combine to make for an angling experience found in few places. For those obsessed with fishing a dry fly, there is no better place in Montana or beyond to cast at large, selective rising trout. If you’re new to the sport, you’ll find that the Missouri River is user friendly. Put on a nymph rig and you’ll immediately be into fish. There’s a reason that visitors to the Missouri River return year after year.
The World’s Best Little Fly Shop
While our shop is small, our knowledge, selction and attitude are huge. We carry everything you’ll need for a fly fishing adventure on the Missouri River or elsewhere in Montana. More important than what we carry is our incredible staff who is here from dawn until dusk to help you catch more fish on the Missouri River. Everyone who works at Headhunters is a full time trout fanatic. If we’re not working in the shop or guiding, we’re out on the Missouri River fly fishing.

Missouri River Guided Fly Fishing
We didn’t set out to build the biggest guide service on the Missouri River, just the best. Owners/outfitters Mark Raisler and John Arnold have been guiding on the Missouri River for years. They know the river and what kind experience customers are looking for. We have assembled the best guide staff on the river. Our guides are requested far in advance and all work full time as guides on the Missouri River. Our shop staff insures everything goes smoothly from your first phone call to checking out after your trip. Headhunters makes every effort to match you to the right guide, and we think that this often overlooked element is critical to you success, enjoyment and learning curve. It doesn’t matter to us whether you are a seasoned angler with international experience or a “rookie” who doesn’t know what “mend” means. Headhunters guides treat everyone the same, and strive to make sure you have a great time and catch as many fish as possible.
