We had booked a 4 day fly fishing trip in Big Sky in August 2014. While there, we stopped in the Gallatin River Guides Fishing store to purchase a pair of wading boots. We experienced good service from the sales person. While we did not purchase the boots that day we returned the following day, purchasing the boots, 2 shirts,... More

Even as a novice, it was extremely fun and I can see why people get hooked on fly fishing. It was a full day trip, but it went by way too fast. I was with my mother in one boat for 8 hours, while my siblings were in the second boat. It felt like 4 hours. The guides were flexible,... More

Everyone here is friendly, patient and understanding. Our two kids took an hour out back at the stocked lake. The guide was so kind and sweet, and took the time to talk fishing, too. Later that day my wife took a 2hr trip to the river and had a great time. This is the place I'd recommend for anyone. Thanks... More

Took my son for two full days- day 1 wading into the Gallatin with Bob (the teacher) and day 2 drifting Yellowstone with Ross (the fish whisperer)! We had a blast! Bob was an excellent teacher with 25+ yrs experience and had a very composed way of teaching the technique as well as how to read the river for max... More

Had a great time fly fishing with the family on our trip out to Montana. My sister and I were in a boat together for about 8 hours, and our guide successfully had us catch three fish each, an impressive feat given our inexperience. Overall the guide was knowledgeable, patient, and very instructive. Extra points for being able to deal... More

Since the day that I contacted them, they knew exactly what I wanted and who I needed. One of the best experiences of my life that has (re)hooked me for life onto fishing. Gallatin Rover Guides will now be my first point of call for all my fishing trips, and one that I will now do every year, even if... More

Had 4 days with these lads. Two of which on the Missouri River and two on the Yellowstone. Pat arranged an awesome itinery for me which included top class accommodation for the trip which was of good value and in great locations being right on the Missouri River and in the heart of Livingston. Secondly Garret and Pat were brilliant... More

I've lived in Big Sky for almost two years now and have only been fly-fishing a handful of times. Every time I went with friends, I felt like a nuisance since I didn't really know how to do anything and was constantly needing help. When my family came out to visit from Virginia this summer though, it seemed like the... More

We had the best customer service experience in Big Sky from Gallatin River Guides. We visited the shop daily and took two different guided trips with their professional guides. From Jimmy to the guides to the sales professionals, the knowledge base and service level of the shop exceeds that of the others in the area. We bought a new rod... More
