For the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over satellite imagery, plotting the next day's adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky, hastily consumed while watching rising fish. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk.

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
Fishing Reports - All Articles
We are in the Betwix and Between time on the Madison River in Montana. Is it fall with cooler temps or is it summer with highs in the mid 80's. If you were around this last few weeks, YES we have seen it all. Should I wear sandals to the river or Orvis Pro Waders and fleece is the daily struggle. The fish are just as confused. Should they be in summer mode of waking up late and eating hoppers and ants mid afternoon, or in the Streamer Eating Fall Mode.
