About
Parks' Fly Shop is a full-service fly shop and fly fishing outfitter that has been serving southwest Montana, the Yellowstone River, and Yellowstone National Park since 1953, under continuous Parks family ownership. We are a small "old-fashioned" shop focusing on our region-specific guide service, a large selection of area-specific fly patterns (around 45% designed and/or produced locally), and outfitting anglers for the Yellowstone region. In addition to our fly tackle, we stock conventional fishing gear, bear spray, binoculars and spotting scopes, apparel, and various other odds and ends. You may also be interested in the Gardiner Guesthouse, our affilated B&B, owned by Richard and Nancy Parks.Please check the How-To section of our website or contact us for plenty of free information on fishing the Yellowstone area that will help make your trip a success, whether you're fishing on your own for an afternoon or with our guides for a week.

If you are looking for an incredible fly fishing experience, go to Parks Fly Shop. Ask for guides Trevor or Cody. They are both experienced, knowledgeable, patient and friendly. They can take you to typically unfished, remote areas. We spent two days with them, easily caught 10 to 20 fish each day.

We had such a great time with Kody and Wally. Great guides who know the area. Very friendly and easy going. We all had a wonderful day learning to fly fish with them. All four of us caught multiple fish. Highly recommend this.place.

My husband and I hired Kody from Park's fly shop for half a day of fly fishing on Yellowstone River. We wanted an adventure and Kody provided it! He guided us on a section of the Yellowstone, and even though the height of tourist season, we were the only ones there. Kody taught us new techniques and we had a lot of fun catching a variety of fish species. I totally recommend Park's fly shop for supplies and for a satisfying guided fly fishing trip!

Richard was SO helpful. Rented snowshoes but needed some help getting them to our vacation rental due to hours & Christmas holiday. He worked with owners where we stayed & made it so easy. Gear was in good condition too. Will rent from here again if we are lucky enough to come back

My family, including two teenaged boys, love to fish on the fly! And when I explained to Walter what we were looking for, he planned the most special experience ever. We wanted the boys to catch trout, and boy, did they ever! And Walter managed to bring us through some whitewater as an added treat for my guys. This trip with these two experienced, pleasant, talented men was a highlight of our summer vacation. Thanks again, gentlemen!

We had a great time on the Yellowstone River today with Walter Wiese! He was so patient with us and taught us so much. We enjoyed the amazing views and actually caught some fish thanks to Walter! We were compete beginners at fly fishing and they took us anyway! They provided everything we needed too. Thank you Parks Fly Shop and Walter Wiese!

While traveling to Yellowstone for a family vacation I wanted to check fly fishing off my bucket list. Neither me or my 17 and 12 year old boys had been fly fishing before. Our guide, Ben, made sure we got to a stream that guaranteed fish. He was great in working with all of us on technique. In particular he worked with my 12 year old, who absolutely loves to fish, in order to make sure he had a great experience. On a half day trip the three of us caught 76 small to mid sized brook trout, and we all learned the basics of fly fishing. Be sure to ask for Ben when you book your trip. He was awesome!

Bart and Richard are extremely knowledgeable, receptive, helpful. They gave solid recommendations on where to go to catch trout -- and they were 100% correct. They were patient with first time fly fishermen in the region -- spent a great deal of time with us. Gave very helpful advice. Well stocked store with both retail and rentable equipment for both adults and children. Guide service available.

I went out on a half day with Wilson. Was new to fly fishing, and in a short period of time was able to get a hang of the sport and catch about 20 fish. Wilson explained and demonstrated how easy fly fishing really can be. The shop is full of great guys and gear. Definitely will be doing another guided trip in the future!
