Headhunters Spring Special thru April 30th!
Our annual discounted guide trips and local Craig lodging have become quite popular. If we believe Oscar Wilde and his quote,
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”
then we are doing just fine. Our 8th year of the Headhunters Annual Spring Special is rolling right along. Our entire guide staff is on board with this fantastic bargain for you and your fishing friends. $400 gets you on the river for a 7-8 hr float along with lunch, flies, a good fish netter, a couple bad jokes, and a gateway to spring relaxation provided in a fly fishing environment.
Before the spring special concept Craig Montana was a ghost town. A total of 25 guide trips would head on out for those who could not wait until summer. Spring has always been a fishy time on the Mighty Mo and it was our guides that came up with this idea that if we offered a discounted spring trip they would like to work while showing you that the Missouri River fishes like gangbusters when that water temp starts moving upwards!
Many of the largest Brown Trout are caught in April and May. Some believe that stripping dreamers in the fall is the ticket to large fish lurking in Brown Town. Maybe on other rivers. Our fatty brown’ies love to chew on attractor flies and stripped and swing streamer flies. The rainbows are mostly out of the river doing the spawning things and the browns take advantage of the recently available river real estate.
We have discounted lodging as well. Craig Trout Camp starts @ $150/nt. Stay right here in downtown Craig. Missouri River Trout House, the Beach House, the Hunt House are all discounted in the spring. Montana’s Wolf Creek Lodge and Go Fish Motel are available for just over $100/night. Affordable and local. A perfect way to kick start your fishing season with a visit to Craig Montana.
Would you choose to fish with Headhunters Fly Shop & Guide Service just because we have been offering the Spring Special the longest? No, certainly not. The reason would be to fish with our top shelf, tenured, career fishing guides. Couple that with our World Class Customer Service, the best in lodging options with over 30 properties to choose from, and the friendliest fly shop on Montana’s Missouri River.
Add all that up and we can assure you will enjoy a memorable spring trip in Craig.
