Headhunters 14th Anniversary is Today!

Headhunters 14th Anniversary is Today!

Yes. Today is the 1st day of our 15th year. The first 14 are in the archives.

Lots of thanks to the many who have helped us through the first 14. You are our focus.

John, Julie, and I begin our 15th year. Sara starts her 13th year. 7wt, Braden Lewis, Dewey, Rob B, Steve Johnson, Steve Collie, Max Mattioli, Shane Wilson, have all worked in the shop and are now part of our mostly homegrown all star guide crew. Julie has been our savior since day 1. Ben Hardy also since the beginning. Jimmy in his 11th year, Nichole is past 12 or 13…and new Headhunters members join this year too. 5 new shop staff to augment our existing pro’s.

The family continues to grow.

We are so fortunate to work and play here in Craig Montana on the banks of Montana’s Missouri River. It is why all of us are here. We’d be nothing with out this world class resource.

So many thanks to Mother Mo. Loads of appreciation to our fantastic and competent staff. And of course we could not do any of this without you the reader, the client, the Headhunters customer.

Thanks for all of your support for the first 14. We are entering our 15th. Thanks in advance for your continued support.

We are big fans of conservation, women, children, and veterans. That is who we focus our volunteer efforts upon as well as our annual donations and giving. We support our local community and help in whatever endeavors need attention.

We are outspoken because we believe that somebody has to beat the drum. We are transparent because we feel that information, education, entertainment and above all customer service never falls out of style.

Headhunters believes in mentoring youth and vets. Fly Fishing can be fun and can grow. Pretentiousness has no place in this sport. Part of our daily focus includes helping anglers enjoy their day.

We support 30+ fly fishing industry families here in the greater Craig area. We believe in family and hard work.

We believe that transparency is the only way to roll. And while not everybody believes in that kind of honesty we don’t know any other way to conduct business and fly fishing lives.

Headhunters is having fun on the banks of the Missouri River in Craig Montana.

We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and supportive words over the past 14 years.

Many thanks from all of us here at Headhunters!

  • Happy anniversary. I’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed eight of those years, this will make nine. The knowledge and friendship that you have displayed has been the best. Keep up the good work.😀

  • Watched you from day one. Parrothead to Headhunters. O’Connell’s General Store to Izaaks. Metal span bridge to Forrest H Anderson and the Frenchman and Me to Shotgun Annie’s. You may be over 2k miles from me and my home river (the Pere Marquette) but the Missouri is certainly my adopted home river and holds a special place in my heart. Congrats on your great business model and longevity in a volatile, changing industry. Good customer service never, ever goes out of style or disappoints.

  • Well-written my friend! See you soon to celebrate our 20ith-something 😉 -Friel

    This will be our groups 11th year with your team. Many hundreds, if not thousands of fish caught and released.

    In fact, I will will send in the deposit for this year as an anniversary gift.

    Tight lines and pray for rain.

  • Congrats on your anniversary. Grateful to be able to watch you grow and adapt for 13 of those 14 years. Keep up the great work, I look forward to living vicariously through you all for another 13 years and more!

    Congratulations Mark and to your entire staff. I’m not sure how long Backwater Bob and I have been graced with your presence, but its been a minute. If I had to pick a word that comprehensively describes the entire Headhunter’s experience-from stem to stern, I would pick, “Sterling”. The experience you and your staff provide has and will continue to be woven into the happy fabric of my life. Thanks for all you do. See you in June (and September).

    You all are a Class Act! I’ve enjoyed watching your growth and development. I’ve been a big fan since you opened.
    Keep on Keeping On! See you all this summer.

  • Congrat’s boys and girls. You should all be proud of what you’ve created, and how you did it. I still remember when John & Mark told be about their plans to open a new fly shop in Craig, and then made the drive to Bozeman to talk more about their plans, unveil the name of the shop and show me the original Headhunters logo. It’s been great seeing your success grow over the years!
