I stopped in here a week ago on my way to fish the Gallatin (my first below freezing fishing experience). We had considered taking a guided trip but backed out of it since we had our own equipment, plus we weren't sure how successful we would be in 18F weather. When we came by, we had a great experience. We... More

Best online shopping experience I have had EVER. Pat went out of his way to help, with multiple emails between USA and AUS with super fast replies to all my enquiries. Scored an amazing deal as well, and the shipping was faster than from some retailers in my own country. If I head to the US to fly fish I... More

My wife surprised me with a trip to Montana for 3 days and she did her research. After contacting several outfitters in the Bozeman big sky area she was most impressed with pat straub and gallatin river guides. Everyday we fished a new river and put fish in the net constantly from dries to droppers, streamers to hoppers. Best of... More

Our experience was outstanding! I brought three beginner fly fishermen and everything ran smoothly. The guides were very helpful and encouraging. I was a little worried about the difficulty of the Madison and I believe I was left in the dust as far as fish count. My fiance and her family caught more fish than I did! That is a... More

Me and my wife visited Big Sky in October . We looked around for a drift boat guide, and my sister, a local, reccomended Pat. We had an amazing time. He runs a first class operation. We caught a ton of fish, saw amazing scenery, and had a great lunch! My wife had never fly fished before and Pat showed... More

I had a chance to have 2 days in Big Sky and was treated to an enthusiastic, friendly knowledgeable guide Mike, who put me into some terrific fish and really helped my casting and drifts improve. Mike also had a great camera, so the pics are the great. My Montana trip photo's got my buddy so hot, we already booked... More

Pat, I wanted to thank you and all of your crew for your professional, ethical, knowledgeable and most of all FUN approach to fishing. I thoroughly enjoyed my three days with you, Bob and Ross and would recommend your service to anyone looking to fish the Yellowstone area. I am especially thankful that Ross "coerced" me into fishing the Yellowstone... More
