Montana fly fishing gift ideas

Big Sky and Bozeman, Montana.

If you’re like most of us, finding time to shop for those in your life is another scribble on your list. Here are the season’s best gifts. You can buy all of these at Gallatin River Guides or online. Got questions? Contact us.

Yeti Hopper Flip 12. Since Yeti’s inception in 2006, they are known for the best coolers on the planet. With the Hopper Flip 12 you have the best gift on the planet. It is a leakproof, tough-as-nails, carry-the-day soft cooler.

Patagonia Foot Tractor Boots. Simply put an amazing wading boot. Built with attached aluminum bars on the sole, this boot is for any angler who doesn’t like to slip and fall hard on their back-side while fishing. That’s probably all of us. But don’t just take our word for it, try a pair on today.

Sage X.  In fly fishing, Sage is synonymous with innovation. Their rod designers pride themselves in using technology to create the finest fly rods made. The Sage X solidifies their reputation as the makers of amazing tools that will help you or your angler catch more fish.

Simms Bounty Hunter roller luggage.  Montana winters are long. As much as we love winter here in Big Sky, it is sometimes nice to get away. Be sure to have one of the Simms Bounty Hunter rolling bags with you. They come in two sizes: The 100 which weighs in at 6102.37 cu. in. and 30” x 18” x 14 and the Carry-On Roller which weighs in at 2746.07 cu. in. 22” x 14” x 10”.

RL Winston Air fly rod.  The Winston Air, the new rod from Winston, will delight any Winston fan. The rod is lighter and more accurate than a BIIIx, especially with casts of 30 to 40 feet. If you enjoy fishing at close ranges, enjoy feeling each move of a hooked fish through the rod and down into the handle, and like to buy Montanan, buy this rod for yourself or the angler in your life.

A spot in one of our fishing schools. If you know someone who would love a Montana fly fishing experience, then give the gift of fishing. The Montana Women’s Fly Fishing School and The Montana Fishing Guide School make a great gift and we can even send a gift certificate and a hat so they have something to open.
