Not sure of the gear you will need
From Montana to Mongolia and everywhere else in between one of our crew has probably been there. We can help with the right gear to make that trip of a lifetime, or an afternoon on the local water more successful.
43 years ago I walked into The Tackle Shop for the first time and began my love affair with the Madison River. The river fishes today as good or better than it ever did and the service at The Tackle Shop has never been better. John, I thank you for making my Madison River experience beyond my expectations every year. See you this summer and every summer in the future.
John and his crew at The Tackle Shop are not only extremely knowledgeable about
the fishing in the area, they're also just a great bunch of people who are
genuinely happy to share their expertise while making friends and connections.
The store has an excellent selection of gear, and it's one of the few places
where I can find quality clothing made with fly fishing women in mind

Well, we are mid way through September and the Madison Valley is starting to get that fall feeling. Mornings are starting to get a little colder, jackets are staying on longer and the fisherman are hanging out at the local cafe later drinking coffee. What a great time to be on the upper Madison River. The trees and brown trout seem to mirror each other in their gold color change.
Indian summer is here. While it might be september the fish are still in summer mode. Lots of dry fly action river wide. Remember that the mornings are still a little chilly and the best fishing has been starting around 10:30 and extending to about 5. It takes that long for the river to warm up a few degrees and get the fish moving for the day.
Here are the winners of the First Annual Whitefish Photo Contest.
God I hope heaven looks like Montana in September. A prayer I say often and truly believe. Montana comes into its own in September and shows her best self. It has forgot the cold and snow of last winter, the refreshing rains of spring have brought life to the landscape and it has marinated in the summer sun to produce a perfect golden product. The rivers are veins of life flowing through a dramatic landscape. The September Montana I know is as close to perfect as one can imagine.
