I went fishing with a guide (Mike) from GRG and was very pleased. The guys who worked with me over e-mail and phone helped set up just the short intro I was looking for which met my time restrictions and showed me waters I had never fished before. I have not been fly fishing a long time but I feel... More

I ordered an item from the gallatin river guides fly shop and had to return it due to the wrong size. They have bent over backwards to help me out during the whole process. I ordered on line from Arkansas. They have responded back from 5 different emails I had regarding the item at hours of the night that the... More

I had a great couple of days on the Gallatin and Upper Madison with my guide Mike during the last week of December. Temperature was in the single digits and teens, but Mike put me on hungry fish both days. While fishing the Madison I caught 10+ fish, including a couple of nice browns, in a two hour span. Jimmy...

Great guiding on a spectacular river, great people to do business with while on vacation. Our guide was perfect for both experienced and novice fly fishermen.

I booked a full day float trip. I met Blake Majors at the Gallatin fly shop that morning. We drove over to the Upper Madison. Having never held a fly rod in my life Blake explained the basics and I caught some incredible rainbow trout. The surroundings are breath taking.

Fly fished for the first time but certainly not the last thanks to the excellent service of GRG who set me up with Chase, a knowledgeable and expert guide. I particularly wanted to fish in Lamar Valley in the park and Chase took me to terrific spots and managed to land Yellowstone cutthroat trout, sending me home with 110% satisfaction.

Those are some beautiful fish in the Lamar Valley, and it sounded like Chase had an awesome day as well! Next time we will have to explore more of Yellowstone and the surrounding rivers. More

I've been fly fishing for about 2 seasons, primarily with a friend who guides me on floats. This time he recommended GRG for my 1/2 day walk/wade in Big Sky. I wanted to be able to focus on the details so that I can actually catch fish when I'm on my own. Trey was very patient and knowledgeable and coached... More

Thanks Colleen! That was certainly a cold day, but Trey is great at maximizing learning opportunities even with cold, dirty water. Hope your double surgeon's knot is holding strong! More
