MISSOURI RIVER FLY SHOP & GUIDE SERVICE

Headhunters Fly Shop is located in the not-so-sleepy fishing village of Craig, Montana, on the banks of the world famous Missouri River. At the headwaters of America’s longest river, you’ll find one of the most prolific fisheries in the west, with incredible hatches, big trout, an extended season, user-friendly access, along with an enthusiastic and friendly fly fishing community. There’s a reason that the Missouri River is on everyone’s fly-fishing “to do” list, and many return year after year. In our fly shop, you’ll find an incredible selection of flies specific to the Missouri River, tackle to suit all budgets, the river’s best guide staff and the best customer service in Big Sky Country.
