A Great Experience with MFG

We had a great experience with MFG. Eric was so easy to communicate with and so well organized. Each member of our group had nothing but great things to say about the guides they were paired with. Couldn’t recommend MFG more. Will definitely use again.

Highlight of our Trip!

This was the highlight of our trip!!!!! My mother and I went to Livingston for a mother-daughter trip. Among other things we wanted to go fly fishing. Neither of us had any experience, but had watched my grandfather enjoy it over his lifetime. We wanted to connect with him, nature and learn the skill and art. Will, our guide, has his work cut out for him. He didn’t treat us like a bunch of “silly tourists.” He truly taught us the basics, we caught multiple fish, and we had the most fun, beautiful trip down the river. I know these guys will provide serious anglers a phenomenal trip, but I will be forever grateful that they were able to create an exceptional experience for two novices. It was worth every penny….it was priceless!

Wonderful, memorable experience...

Wonderful, memorable experience with the guides from MFG. Fly fishing package at Yellowstone Valley Lodge was the perfect trip. Guides are very knowledgeable, funny and prepared to help you make it a great day of fishing and appreciating Montana’s natural beauty. Will certainly be back to utilize their services to make the most of my next visit!

MFG is for You

I have been fishing with MFGs for over a decade and would not think about using another outfitter. They are customer driven and work hard to provide you the best fishing, experience possible. Any guide can tie a fly on your line, but if you want a guide that will work hard to get you on the fish and provide you with a memorable experience, MFGs is for you.

Novice fisher-woman

As a novice fisher-woman, I did quite a bit of research on which guide to use during our time in Montana. We needed someone patient and who could give us the best bang for our buck for a half-day adventure & Montana Fly Fishing Guides did just that. Eric, the owner, was incredibly kind and flexible working with us when the weather didn’t cooperate for our initial schedule. He connected us with our guide, Andy, and we had a fantastic time on the beautiful Yellowstone River, catching a variety of trout and white fish. If you book with this group, you will not be disappointed!

“Made the Day Easy & Enjoyable”

I would call myself a beginner who has only been fly fishing for about a year and this was an awesome experience. Jesse made the day easy and enjoyable and we were able to learn a lot of new tips from him. Eric was also awesome to work with booking the day. Definitely going to recommend these guys to anyone traveling to Montana.

“You should fish with MFG!”

MFG and Josh are a class act! I am a novice fly fisherman and my wife had never fly fished. Josh took the time to teach us the basics and was excellent at teaching. Josh worked hard at keeping us on fish and we were getting bit all day! I cannot say enough good things about our experience today. If you are in Montana you should fish with MFG.

“Patient and Informative”

We were fortunate to be able to book two days of guided fly fishing with Montana Fly Fishing Guides on fairly short notice. We didn’t catch all that many fish, but Lance worked with us on improving our technique (we’ve both been fly fishing for less than a year) and was both patient and informative. Already thinking about when we can head back to Montana and fish again!

Had the opportunity to fish the Yellowstone River with Will Lassiter on September 8, 2017 and what a great trip. I am just two years into fly fishing and Will [MFG Guide] help me with my fishing and put me onto plenty of fish, a lot in the boat and a lot if hits. Thanks Eric and Will.

“Don't Hesitate to Book, Well Worth It”

My group of 6 spent 3 days fishing with Eric and a few of his guides. This was my first time with a guide and it was a great experience. Zack consistently put us on fish. He watched our techniques and gave us advice throughout the day which helped us land even more fish. Don’t hesitate to book these guys. Well worth it.

Eric Adams and his Montana Fly Fishing Guides is the best fly fishing guide service we have ever used. The Yellowstone, Boulder Creek, lots of private waters too.
