"Bill was fantastic (despite the crappy weather). He was absolutely GREAT with my 9-year old son and I am sure that the experience will be something that stays with him for life. I can’t thank you enough for squeezing us in at the last minute! You have a GREAT guide working for you!"

"Once again, Fran and I want to thank you for the amazing service you offer on our visit to Montana. Initially, with multiple days to fish the area on our calendar, we fully anticipated the use of multiple guides to be able to cover the different fishing scenarios we had in mind. After the first day of fishing with you….we had an immediate change of mind and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of every day we fished  in all of the various locations both wade and float fishing. I can assure you that we now always have one piece of advice when asked about fishing Montana… FISH WITH BRIAN MCGEEHAN & MONTANA ANGLER…and never be disappointed! Again…thanks a million for all of your hard work and shared knowledge during our very rewarding visit."

"The trip was great. Plenty of fish and the attention from Doug and Slade was great. Jackson, my eight year old, had a blast while fishing and riding the "waves" of the yellowstone. Our two guides well accommodated both the novices and experienced anglers in our group. We are back every year and you will be getting our repeat business as well as our referrals! Thanks for a great day on the river and 8 rainbows, 3 browns, 6 cut throat, 4 whitefish and 1 sucker fish!!"

"I'm always happy to talk about my experience on the water with you and your guides. This was my second time of booking guides through you. As on the first trip, our days were filled with good conversation and many opportunities to catch fish.  For someone looking to have a great time fly fishing in the area of Bozeman, I would look no further than what you provide through Montana Anglers. I know that you and your guides have given me and my family wonderful memories. I'm already planning my next trip."

"Thanks for making my 30th anniversary and dream vacation the most memorable of my life.  My wife surprised me by booking this fishing trip with you after being deployed in Iraq for two years.  I could not of asked for a better home coming. When you come to Tampa please call so I can return the favor."

"I had to drop you a note and tell you how great my trip to Montana was with Montana Anglers. Fishing on the Madison was awesome especially doing the happy dance of fighting a fish while Adam kept the boat from ramming into boulders. Exciting and way cool. The untouched beauty of Willow Creek is something every angler should see but I hope they don't because I will be back to fish it again. I never thought I would have a 50 plus fish day but it happened and I will always remember the adventure of four wheeling and hiking to get to the creek. The float on the upper Yellowstone through Yankee Jim canyon was amazing. Miles could hold the boat in the calm pockets while the rapids ran along side of the boat all the while I caught some nice cutthroats. Both of the guides, Adam and Miles, I fished with are pros. They know their business and gave insightful instruction when needed. Best of all they enjoyed the fishing as much as I did. When anyone mentions fishing I will always recommend Montana Angler. Thanks guys I'll be back in couple years first though maybe Patagonia."

"We took some very good customers on this trip so our expectations were high. None of us had been to Montana so we didn’t exactly know what to expect. Brian and Montana Angler Fly Fishing made sure we had as much information about the trip as possible and were ready to answer any and all of my questions. Upon arrival on Sunday I lost the directions to the Outpost. I e-mail Brian and within minutes had exactly what I needed to drive directly to the cabins as well as a follow up phone call.  From the first call to the last meal everyone involved was helpful, professional, and fun to be around. Simon is a great cook and keep us wonder if he could top the last meal. I haven’t even talked about the fishing… The guides were knowledgeable and had personalities which made the day that much more enjoyable."

"My friends and I have been coming to Bozeman, MT for a week of fly fishing for over six years. We began using Brian and Miles as our guides two years ago and would never go back to anyone else.  Our trips have risen to a whole different level as far as diversity and excitement. The McGeehan’s can fish areas no other guide can touch due to their skill and use of rafts. We have had some truly phenomenal fishing days in water that gets very little fishing pressure because of limited access. I will never forget my trip in Yankee Jim Canyon in 2008.  We caught more fish than I could even count! Also, I have very much enjoyed trips to places such as the Sitz Ranch and Willow Creek that I would have never known existed or had access to without Brian and Miles."

"You run a first class operation. I could not be more pleased with every aspect of our trip. Our guides Nate, John and Chris were excellent.This trip was on my wife's bucket list and they did all the extras to make it special. My son in law had never been west of the Mississippi and he fell in love with Montana. Many thanks. We are already talking about a return trip."

"Two years ago, we did two float trips with you and your brother, Miles, on the Madison, one with my son and one with my brother-in-law.  We are still talking about what wonderful experiences those were.  I couldn’t believe how hard you guys worked and the service you provided.  When Miles pulled a propane burner out of the boat and made us a grilled chicken Caesar salad on a sandbar in the middle of the Madison, it about blew me away. I tell everyone who is interested that your guided trips are the best value for money of any recreational or service dollars I have ever spent."

"We had a WONDERFUL time on our fishing trip, thank you for all of your help setting it up. Everyone caught multiple fish and my 8 year old nephew loved it. Both Doug and Bill were fabulous--not only were they extremely friendly and fun to be around but also very helpful and informative in helping us have a fun and successful day. Even the lunch break was great! It really was the perfect way to end our trip and might have been our favorite activity of our entire trip. We were so thrilled with the trip and are very happy we booked through Montana Angler! You are welcome to use any of the above as a testimonial on your site and I've also attached two pictures."

"I just wanted to provide a little feedback on our trip this week. First, the trip exceeded all expectations. My 10-year old son and I caught a fair number of fish including one very nice Rainbow. It was a wonderful day on the Yellowstone River and pretty much the best way to spend eight hours that I can imagine. Our guide, Mike Mansfield, was a perfect fit for us. He was incredibly patient with us rank beginners. In fact, he has the patience of a saint as we tangled, snagged, and bumbled our way down the river, losing flies and missing fish all the way. He is a very easygoing guy and really pleasant to spend the day with. With 20/20 hindsight, it seems like every fish I caught was 100% based on his instruction: a well-placed cast in front of the boat (boy I had trouble doing this for some reason) and up against the bank, a proper mend, a proper set across river, and the fish would come. Some more practice and I bet we triple the number of fish caught; unfortunately it's hard to put it all together when starting out. Despite our constant shortcomings, Mike was spectacular all day and he was excellent with my son who ran out of fishing gas about halfway through. I seriously would not change a single thing. Thanks so much…we will be back."

"My first experience fly fishing was with Brian and Miles McGeehan in Bear Trap Canyon on a day when the water level spiked to extremely high levels from an unexpected release from Ennis Lake. Despite the difficult conditions, Brian was patient and confident and I not only came through the class V rapids in the canyon safely, but I also discovered a new hobby. I enjoyed the trip so much that two weeks later I got my son out on the water with the Brian who then had two rookies in the same boat.  Again, he was very patient and confident. Three years later, my wife started her fly fishing experience with Brian in the Bear Trap. Thanks to Brian and Miles, fly fishing has become a family affair. We cannot wait until our five year old is big enough to learn the ropes from Brian and Miles and the other Montana Angler fly fishing guides."

"Just got back home to the over heated LA. Already miss Montana so much. I wanted to take a minute to just let you know how much we enjoyed our trip. Doug and Slade were just amazing, they made it the most incredible experience ever !! I wanted to learn how to fly fish but was a little nervous about it. They both made it so easy for us, all three of us just love them both. I would highly recommend them. The resort was great to, I especially loved leaving my door open throughout the night to hear the river and enjoy the fresh cool air !! I hope we can do this again."
