Jobs @ Headhunters Fly Shop 2015

It is that time of year when we scour the country in search of a few good Headhunters employees.

You can see above one of the many the joys of working at a fly shop. Today we counted flies. Tomorrow? Answering the phone, selling fly rods, booking summer guests, shuttling a few vehicles. The daily grind. Is it that bad? No, certainly not.

Some even find it fun and rewarding. It does not hurt that you would be living on one of the premier trout rivers in the world.

The word is out. We need a couple shop staff for the year. Estimated starting time Mid April-first part of May thru October. We may entertain a seasonal employee as well, May/June thru August. So get your resume’s in and we will attack them with vigor. As with application process those who present themselves well will get the first attention. Want to dive into the world of fly fishing in one of the world’s coolest and fishiest rivers, towns? Get on it!



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 mandatory, 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 10 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 or
