I had three great days fishing. The Madison, the Missouri and the Yellowstone. Although my guide was located through Troutfitters he is an individual contractor and works for other shops in the Valley. Jim (Redbeard) is not only a great boatsman but an extremely professional and competent guide. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to fish in the area. Troutfitters found me a place to stay for my 4 nights and accepted shipment and stored my rods untill I arrived. The price for the guide days through the shop was reasonable. My only criticism of the shop was that they charge for the small amount of terminal gear that they supply. When I wrote to the shop and suggested that this was a little tacky considering the total price of the trip, they got very defensive. I believe the spirit of the criticism was in the form of a suggestion that others might feel the same way but may not say so and just use other shops in the future.
