What is said about you is much more important than what you say about yourself.
Yes, we have a sweet website with beautiful pictures and can talk a big game about how great we are. But, really, anyone can do that. What separates us from other fly fishing outfitters and shops is our relationship with our customers. We maintain a 5 out of 5 rating as an Orvis endorsed outfitter and enjoy dozens of clients whom continue to fish with us for decades! Check out some of those kind words below.
"I told some of my friends back home in Savannah that I was heading to Montana to go fly fishing on a Semper Fi Fund trip – they said “That’s crazy talk!”. I figure I took my daughter to Colorado to go skiing in Steamboat and we figured it out and we had never seen snow, this can’t be any harder or more out of character. Our 3 day overnight trip was exceptional. Even though those Montana guides kept throwing the fish back (didn’t keep one!!), I truly loved every moment on the water."
"Living in Missoula affords the opportunity to fish great rivers anytime we want, but there is nothing better than hiring the pros at BRO for a refresher course, entertain visiting friends or do some serious fishing with our kids."
"I placed an online order and had the item at my house in three days. I called to verify that the item I needed was in stock before I purchased online. I spoke to Jack and he was super friendly and told me he had what I needed and if I placed the order he would go ahead and package it up. It was shipped the same day. I will definitely purchase from this store again. Hard to find good customer service like this nowadays."
"Lets see…In the past 24 years I’ve fished more than a dozen different waters, from half day walk/wades to 5 day camp outs with the BRO Team and I still look forward to every trip! Nuff said."
"Blackfoot River Outfitters has been my go-to fly shop for as long as I can remember. Trust them to have selected the right product because they know what works. Don't go anywhere else!"
"B.R.O. has been meeting my family’s fly fishing gear needs for more than two decades, since our first rods and reels in the 90s. We particularly appreciate their understanding of women and kids as active anglers, not just along for the ride. Their advice and guidance has been invaluable and reflects the mantra that “We don’t sell it unless we use it.” Expertise spans the sport from 3wt rods to nymphs to buffs and gloves to spey."
“BRO is one of the best outfitters, a well run group that sets you up for success. We had a great day on the Upper Clark Fork river. Our guide was excellent, and he helped us get the most out of our day. We were prepared for the weather- which was a mixed bag of rain and sunshine, and cold and warm at times. We caught a lot of nice fish, loved the scenery and overall experience floating that area with a true pro at the helm.”
“Always exciting to come walk around this place, great selection of anything you could ever need!”
“Always great customer service and super fast shipping!!”
“Skwala-palooza on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot and Clark Fork and the BRO team ALWAYS delivers the amazing experience. Check out the shop - best selection of the best gear! Thank you BRO team!”
“We literally utilized just about every service BRO provides, and had a great experience across the board. We purchased waders from their online store to pick up for our guided trip, I had them set me up with flies and advice for some personal wade fishing, and we used them for guided trips on the Blackfoot for my wife, my two sons (11 and 13), and me. Their communication and customer service is fantastic. On our trip, both of our guides were excellent. They were patient with us as beginners, and got the entire family into (many) trout. They were knowledgeable and professional, and made our days enjoyable from start to finish. We will do this again (and again).”
"I got to take a “bug class” from Noelle. She is great, so much knowledge and was able to really help me advance my knowledge of not just bugs and flies, but the waters to use them in, time of year and helped me understand the hatches. As a women fly fisher, she is a wealth of knowledge!!! I would highly recommend this fly shop!!! They also have some great gear and products here as well. If you’re a fly fisherman and in Missoula, don’t hesitate to stop by this shop, you won’t be disappointed."
“On short notice we booked a float trip on the Blackfoot with BRO. This is our second time floating with them and the experience has been great both times. Knowledgeable, friendly guides, excellent equipment and plenty of good local knowledge to share.”
“With rivers up we were unsure of our success. However this was the best fishing we have ever had in Missoula with BRO. I must also add there is no better guide service or people than BRO. I have been bringing my sons for 25 years and had the opportunity to expand with grandson this year and they took total care of him. Even a bad day fishing is a great day with BRO.”
“These are ultimate professionals with a heart. They treated me like a human and not another accountant who saw A River Runs Through It. I would recommend these folks very highly.”
“Outstanding service at the shop and super guides. Our two-day overnight river camping trip was the trip of a lifetime. Our guide put us in the right spots and easily adapted to our different experience levels. We caught more trout than we could count, and monster pike too. Camping was perfect and the food better than in-town restaurants. Those two days were our best days fishing too. We will be back, and soon and we're now devoted to BRO.”
“I've used the guiding services of Blackfoot River Outfitters annually for the last 20 years. Their familiarity with local streams is hard to match and their attention to detail ranges from constant (but appropriate) guidance while fishing to having a hot lunch every time. The new shop offers a spectacular level of merchandise for all levels of fishing enthusiasts. If looking for a guided trip, a retail or online store, this should be your first stop.”
“Great 3 days fishing! Blackfoot provides a fantastic experience. Our guide was awesome. I’ve been on many guided hunting and fishing trips, but never fly fishing. He was excellent at teaching me giving constant feedback until I had command. We caught lots of fish, and I learned a new sport. I will definitely be back!”
“Just came off 5 days of fishing them and 7 of my friends. I had worked with them once before with another group of eight. I had told my friends they were a first class outfit and had a great fly shop as well. I personally fished 5 days with 4 different guides. And did not have a bad experience with any of them. Enjoyed all that they offered. I did not hear one complaint from anyone in our group. We caught fish, Had a lot of laughs, and enjoyed our trip. Thanks to everyone at BRO.”
“Absolutely perfect experience! From my first reaching out for information to booking the trip, the communication was fantastic, quick responses and very professional with a down home feel. Our guide was amazing and they even booked our room at the Best Western Plus which was first class! THANK YOU BLACKFOOT RIVER OUTFITTERS for the trip of a lifetime !!!”
