We did the morning wading fly fishing trip. None of us (5 adults and a 9 year old) had done any fly fishing. It was really fun and informative. Everyone caught a fish! Guides were outstanding and VERY knowledgeable! I would highly recommend doing this activity.

Husband and I rented ski equipment and couldn't have had a better fit. They educated us on how the boots should fit and I can honestly say that they were secure, no blisters or pain from pressure. The demo skis were perfect for our skill level and we had a great time on the slopes. We ended up skiing 5/5... More

These people are the best to work with! They really seem to like what they do and have been so helpful knowing the right equipment for you. The prices are the most reasonable in the area and you don't have to return the equipment in the middle of the week if you want to take a break between ski days.... More

Half day fly fishing that was pure enjoyment. Very friendly atmosphere and they are great working with "newbies". My two sons and I have never been fly fishing before but the guide was very helpful and patient. We all had a blast and both boys caught 15" brown trouts. We also caught many rainbow trout. The views are awesome. Waders... More

They have a nice shop that’s fully stocked with everything you’d need, the people are friendly, and the rates are very competitive. Schuyler was my guide for the... More

We saw that they did guided fishing tours. My son and I signed up for a half-day fly fishing lesson. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our guide Adam... More

While vacationing in Big Sky this week we happened in to the East Slope Outdoors shop to look into fly fishing on the Gallatin River. Being complete novices, we had no idea what to expect and were apprehensive. Let me say that Dave and his entire staff made our family feel right at home. We have three boys who fired... More
