Headhunters Advanced Fly Fishing School

Introducing the Headhunters Advanced Fly Fishing School on Montana’s famed Missouri River. Yes, in the past few years we here at Headhunters have had many requests to present a school for those who want to improve their western fly fishing game. And why not do it here in central Montana.

We certainly have the resource to host an advanced fly fishing school. The Missouri River will giveth and taketh on any given day. For those of us who would like to turn the tables on the outcome of some of the situations that come up this is your chance to fight back with education.

We are certainly excited to offer the Headhunters Advanced Fly Fishing School this fall 2016. October is a perfect time to advance your game on the Mo! And why not do it with the Headhunters Gang?

Streamer Junkies love October for the waning of crowds and the brown trout bite. Nymphers love it for the opportunity to rock ’em all day long whether it be deep nymphing or executing the short leash. Dry Fly Fanatics will tell you that the BWO’s keep them coming back year after year. October is a great month on the Missouri River here in Craig Montana.

We have the perfect lodging place to host the Headhunters Advanced Fly Fishing School in Wolf Creek. A new rental unit for us has a great room for dining, hanging, presenting evening Powerpoint presentations, along with a pool table and a view that is to die for we think you will enjoy the space we have chosen.

Private rooms for 2 with TV, coffee service, and internet. 2 beds per room. All you need for your trip out to Montana.

All meals provided including breakfast daily, lunches on the river, and dinner at the house will keep you smiling. And relaxing. And learning.

Bring your son or daughter, your wife, your co-worker, your fishing partner, or your neighbor. Why not bring the entire family? Whoever you bring you will both enjoy and learn on this fantastic fly fishing education opportunity!

    Would love to do this. You say advanced, what do you ask for experience. I love to fly fish but at the stage I want to take the next step and learn so much more.

    • Michael,

      Just some experience fishing and a willingness to move to the next level. We will be foundation building as well as learning about the nuts and bolts of difficult fishing situations including casting, flies, approach etc! Give us a call for more info Michael!
