Headhunters Fly Shop Employment 2014

Headhunters Fly Shop Employment 2014 | Need a couple more good men and women!

We have hired a few good men and women for the season…we still need a couple more!

We are looking for full time fly shop staff April-October. Get in at the epi-center of modern American fly fishing fun this year @ Headhunters Fly Shop. Send in your resume today! Read below for how and where to send it…

The time has come once again and we are in need of a few good men and women here at the epi-center of modern American fly fishing…Montana’s Missouri River and Headhunters Fly Shop.

We are actively taking resumes for 2014 employment opportunities. We have already hired a few individuals that got on the early bird special. Early bird does get the worm. Finally, a real life analogy!

John wrote this web post and it is embedded on our site here under employment. Keep in mind a few of the important things hew states below. A good looking resume magically rises to the top of the pile. Those folks who do not capitalize i when speaking of themselves…well how can we overlook that? I know I misspell and incorrectly punctuate on a daily basis. But I already have the job!

A couple of the recent Headhunters Staffers have left for outside fly fishing jobs. Why leave Craig? We don’t understand it either, but these two have chosen to continue their fly fishing dream jobs in other arenas. Not everybody can rock it full time like Sara and Ninch.

We are not soliciting guides at this point. John and Mark’s outfitting needs are currently fulfilled. But, if you think you are somebody that we cannot deny, then come on down and take John or myself fishing for the day. We arguably have the most talented and requested guide staff on the Missouri and if you can squeeze yourself into this solid group…then we encourage your participation. We’d love to help you further your career as well.

So here we go. You want to work at one of the most prolific and favorite fly shops in America? You got what it takes? Well then, bring it.

This is an opportunity to work on the famed Missouri River with a group of like minded superstars @ Headhunters Fly Shop & Guide Service in Craig Montana.

Headhunters Fly Shop Employment 2014

Fly Fishing Employment

So, you want to work in a fly shop. Do you really know what you are getting into? If you think working at a fly shop entails sitting around and drinking coffee while you surf Moldy Chum and read the latest issue of the Drake, then don’t apply with us. Working at Headhunters is fast paced, and sometimes high stress. The Missouri River is one of the most popular fisheries in the world, and Headhunters is known as the information center on the river. We expect our employees to provide customers with the highest level of customer service, and most accurate information. Our team environment is both demanding and fun to work in, but it’s not “easy”.


We are generally looking for knowledgeable, energetic and enthusiastic anglers to join our team. Youth rules around our shop. We like folks with energy. A passion for fly-fishing imandatory, both to work at Headhunters and to live in Craig. There’s not much else to do. If hitting Starbucks in the morning and the symphony after dinner is important to you, you probably won’t like living in Craig. If choking down a burger and a brew after a 1o hour day, then fishing the evening caddis until after dark is more your style, you’ll love it.


If you are interested in working at Headhunters, you must send us a resume’ to begin the process. Fill it out just like they teach you in high school… references, work and eduction history, etc. Make sure and include any information you think we should know about you and who you are.  A grip ‘n grin shot of you with a nice fish wouldn’t hurt either. Those that live close enough to come for an initial interview are encouraged to do so. Position finalists may be asked to come to Craig for an interview. Questions can be sent to john@headhuntersflyshop.com or mark@headhuntersflyshop.com.
