This whirlwind Rocky Mountain road trip begins in Bozeman, Montana and ends twelve days later in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  It includes nine full days of guided fly fishing, eleven nights of accommodation, all transport, and lunches on all the guided days. Two of our staff will be present on this trip, taking care of everything behind the scenes and ensuring things go smoothly.

The first leg of this trip is scheduled for Dillon, Montana. Here we will be fishing the Beaverhead, Bighole, Jefferson, Madison and Ruby rivers. These are all world-class rivers offering the quintessential Montana fly fishing experience. From the intimacy of the meandering and willow-lined Beaverhead, to the 50-mile riffle on the Madison and the small stream magic of the Ruby River. The variety of fishing on offer is both broad and diverse.

The second leg is to Eastern Idaho in the wonderful Teton Valley. This area has some of the best dry fly rivers on the planet. The South Fork, Henry’s Fork. Teton. Snake. Trip participants will get the opportunity to fish all these rivers and more.

Most, if not all of the fishing is done out of drift boats, so there is no need to walk big distances, or navigate rough terrain. Over the years we have had clients ranging in age from 16 – 81 years of age. Participants can choose to wade fish on certain days, and the guides are open to earlier starts, allowing us to beat the heat on the hot days and also make the most of our time.


All accommodation is included and is of a good standard. Wherever possible we rent comfortable homes near to the fishing. Many homes will require that participants share a room with another guest. Our advice. Bring a friend or book early when single rooms may be available.

Sometimes participants may get their own room. Couples will always get a private room and en-suite of their own. We often have more than one couple on these trips allowing us to rent separate homes just for them.

Groups of four or more will get their own house wherever possible.

Sourcing suitable quality accommodation in these destinations is extremely difficult and expensive for these high-season dates, with demand hugely outstripping supply and most places booking out a minimum 12 months in advance. Take advantage of the leverage a group of our size provides and fish these rivers at the peak of the high-summer season.


On the guided days, lunch will be provided by the guides. Breakfasts and dinners are pay your own way and mostly eaten out. There are a number of good dining options in each of the towns we visit. For those who prefer to self-cater, please note that all of the homes we rent have fully-equipped kitchens and we can organise a grocery shop while you are out fishing.


We provide all of the transport so you don’t need to worry about car rentals, the cost of fuel, having reception for Google Maps; or driving on the opposite side of the road! We know the area and take the stress out of travelling in unfamiliar territory.

We collect everyone from Bozeman airport or local hotels at the beginning of the trip, and then drop guests at their preferred location in Jackson Hole e.g. airport, hotel, car hire location at trips end.

For the more adventurous, we offer a self-drive option on this trip which lowers the price by $300 USD per person. This has been especially popular over the years as it allows for complete independence outside of fishing times. A great way to go for couples or friends wanting to expore when off the water.


Our Montana Trip is a great opportunity to fish many world-class rivers in just under two weeks.

The fishing is always good as the trip dates fall at the peak of the northern hemisphere, high-summer fishing season. Think hatches and terrestrials when everyone at home are braving the icy weather of winter.

The trip is suitable for fly fishers of all ages, fitness and / or experience levels; and to date has been popular with couples, families, and groups / pairings of friends. If you are a single angler wanting to come along; please contact us and we will attempt to find you a fishing partner. Beginner fly fishers are more than welcome on this trip. Everyone catches fish and it’s a great experience just being there drifting down a river in the American west.
