"Thanks again for a wonderful experience on our recent fly fishing trip to Montana (6/11-15/12). Everything from start to finish was near perfect. We're all beginner fly fisherman and for some in the group this was to be the first time, so I was a bit anxious about putting together the right trip for everyone. Expectation were high. I'm glad to say Montana Anglers hit the mark and went well beyond. Miles was great to work with on the planning because of his knowledge of the area, his understanding of the best fishing opportunities given our experience level & interests, and the options available for lodging. He listened well to our requirements and did a perfect job matching our needs with what he knew would be the best possible experience in every category." 

"Let me first start with Grey Cliffs Ranch. With 5,000 acres near the Lower Madison, it is nothing short of an amazing property. The 8,000 sq ft lodge is 5-star. Very upscale in every way. The ranch was a great location for the fishing we did. So much to do on the ranch itself including fishing in the private trout ponds, shooting sporting clays at the range, riding horses, taking the jeep around the property, or just kicking back with a cocktail or glass of wine on the deck as we enjoyed the scenery. We all commented how we could have used another day to enjoy more of what the ranch had to offer. Chris the property manager and Mike the chef were very attentive to everyone in the group, available at any time and accommodating in every way. The food was incredible and Mike did a fantastic job adjusting the menu according to our requests. Both were very engaging, but knew when it was time to leave us be to enjoy each others company. They delivered the perfect balance of service, privacy and consideration."

"All of us thoroughly enjoyed our time with our fishing guides Miles & Matt. It was clear this was not their first rodeo. They not only showed up with an idea of where we'd be fishing to maximize our time and interests, but also a game plan to help us progress through various fishing & casting methods that culminated with dry flies on the Firehole River in Yellowstone. Having been out with other guides in MT before, Miles and Matt clearly are in a class above the rest. They are professional, personable and prepared. We were looking for a learning experience and certainly got one, but most importantly, they put us on fish. They were both very patient, letting each of us learn at our own pace. They each have exceptional knowledge, impressive fishing abilities, a calm demeanor and good communication skills. One of them would always seem to show up, make a suggestion or change our rig right at the start of any frustration or problem. They had very good equipment & tackle, and were always focused on making sure we each had the best possible configuration at any given time. I know Matt & Miles are both in high demand. We will plan our next trip accordingly so we can work with them again." 

"Finally, my thanks to you and the rest of your team. I appreciate your personal assistance with some of the finer details both before and during the trip. It was great to know your help was a phone call away. You run a great operation. We will spread the word in MN about the benefits of booking with Montana Anglers. Thank you for making this a bucket list trip! We'll be back soon. Fish On! "
