Our exposure was limited as we only booked a 2 hour intro for our family, but the guides were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They gave special attention to the kids and made sure they caught a fish. Highly recommend these folks.

My brother called very last minute to book a guided trip through them. Even though they didn't have any guides available, the person over the phone called around for us. What fantastic customer service! I wish I remember her name so I could have given her a shout in this review. The trip was a blast. Gary took us to... More

We did the "Small Fry" pond introduction in the morning and did a 2-hour river walk and wade in the evening. It was perfect. We have tried to interest our kids in fishing many times but the frustration level and whining has taken the fun out of it. Our guides taught the kids and were so encouraging. The kids did... More

Five of us, age range 8-75, fished the Taylor arm wih these guys, and had a wonderful time, despite cold weather and not-hungry fish. They worked hard to help a bunch of novices gain skill and safely navigate the water and rocks. We learned some helpful techniques, and had a lot of fun in the process. My eight-year-old grandson particularly... More

We had three guides for five people. We opted for half day. My 14 yo avid fisherman went solo with a guide. The other two were one adult and one tween per guide. Everyone had a great day. GRG provided all gear including waders, poles, flies etc. GRG has fantastic guides and staff. We visited the shop many times after... More

Highly recommend! Our guide, Rick, offered great advise. Was my 12 y/o son's first time fly fishing and Rick had him hooking and catching trout! An experience we will never forget. Definitely going back to them on our next trip.

I was in Big Sky for a conference, but had a small afternoon free. I was able to book a 2 hour guide. It was awesome!!! I had never been fly fishing, but they were great. Our guide was very patient. He took the time to make sure we were getting the technique down, helped us with the rigging, and... More
