OUR PHILOSOPHY

Longtime Missouri River fly fishing guides John Arnold and Mark Raisler founded Headhunters, LLC in 2008, seeking to provide Missouri River anglers with the best customer service, fly patterns, guides and education available in the area. We started in this tiny building with some great people, flies and the basics to get you out on the river. Not much has changed since then. We’re still in that tiny building, and we still have a team of great people. While we do sell more equipment and book more guides than we did 8 years ago, we’re still a very small fly shop who’s goal is to help our customers have a successful trip, learn a bit more about the river, and put the fun back in fly fishing. Customer service will always be our cornerstone. If you’re looking for a new fly rod and reel, we certainly can take care of you. But if you only need a handful of flies and a point in the right direction you’ll receive the same level of help from our incredible staff.

While we always have a couple of “seasonal” employees, most of our staff are full-time professionals who are dedicated to our principles, and to helping you get the right information and equipment for fly fishing. Each one is passionate about fly fishing in their own way.
