Let's just get two things out of the way. Numbers and Big Browns. Our boat landed 30+ good size rainbows/browns during the day and I missed a shot at the fish of my life.

The incredible thing about Mike is that he flys by seemingly amazing pieces of water, explaining that he has hammered those sections for the past 20 years with no luck. Only to stop and point out nearly invisible seams and riffles, first cast hook ups started to seem routine. He also never appeared content, we started the day off with 4 fish in the first 30 minutes and Mike was still changing setups to make sure the action never stopped.

Looking back, I have tried to convince myself it was ok that I broke off the monster brown, chalking it up to a learning experience. The truth is, missing that fish haunts me and I will be returning to fish with Mike every time I'm back in Ennis, hoping to get another chance.

This March will be my third early spring in a row fishing with Mike. I couldn't imagine a more enjoyable experience. From the peaceful, beautiful conditions you fish in, to the excitement of fish after fish that Mike puts you on, every moment is amazing. Mike is very patient and mixes wading and drift fishing nicely.

The best part is that Mike gets as excited as I do when I hook a fish. "The tug is the drug" - Mike Stack

I will keep coming back to Mike at least every year.

I am an avid fisherman from MN who came to Bozeman to drop my son off at MSU for his freshman year, figured we better try fly fishing. I blindly selected Mike by searching the web for a guide and Wow! did I get lucky. Mike was a fantastic teacher as well as a very knowledgable, passionate and experienced guide. He made our intro to fly fishing a memorable experience. I look forward to fishing with Mike again, hopefully sooner than later.

I have been fishing with numerous guides over the years and believe that the most important thing, is guide attitude and demeanor and their ability to read their clients. Mike nailed it both days we were with him and it made for a memorable trip. I appreciated his genuine approach and sure he will continue to build a solid base of repeat clientele. We will be sure to look him up the next time we head to Twin.

Epic and Phenomenal are a couple of words that describe the days on the river(s) I have had with Mike. His knowledge and experience of the waters in southwest Montana is top notch! Mike's enthusiasm and excitement rubs off on you as he shows you how to catch fish on the fly. I have lost count of the number of times Mike has pointed out and said "cast right there" and sure enough a trophy brown or rainbow is on the line. From beginning to experienced anglers I highly recommend Fishtales Outfitting for your next Montana fly fishing adventure.

Michael was a fantastic guide! Knowledgeable, helpful, easy to spend the day with, prompt, etc. He kept us well informed in advance as to which rivers were fishing well and tailored our trip to enhance our "luck". He put us into fish all day long! Fantastic lunch as well!!

I booked Fishtales guide Mike Stack for a trip in April on the Big Hole and it was incredible. I had my mom with me, a first time Fly-Fisher, and she caught a bunch of trout. After the trip she told me she wanted to book Mike for two more days next time we were in Montana. Mike was extremely patient and very helpful in teaching my mom how to cast, set the hook and fight the fish. Meanwhile, I was in the back of the boat streamer fishing, and Mike never missed a single run or hole, putting me on fish continuously while at the same time he was teaching my mom. I was more than impressed with his rowing skills, fishing knowledge, and knowledge on all the local rivers. I learned so much that I had no problem finding fish on the other local rivers by myself after the trip. If you are ever planning on fishing the Madison, Big Hole, Beaverhead, or Jefferson Rivers book Fishtales guide Mick Stack if want to catch fish.
I can't wait to go back with my mom and fish with Mike.

My dad and I have been fly-fishing for 15 years and we still fish with Mike everytime we are in Montana. He is a cool guy, an amazing guide, and a great teacher. We have fished with him on the Madison, Jefferson, Big Hole and the Beaverhead and had tremendous success everytime. He will work hard all day to make sure your fly floats through every hole in the river. He will even row back UPSTREAM to let you float through the good holes again. Awesome dude to fish with whether you're an expert or a beginner. Hope to fish with him again soon!
