"I want to complement your entire program and putting together a superb fishing experience. Internet interaction, telephone conversation and personal interaction at the fly shop in Bozeman were all excellent. My accommodation at the Madison Valley Ranch was superior. The meals were excellent, the staff was extremely pleasant to deal with and the other clients at the lodge were very nice. My fishing experience was outstanding mainly because of our guide Josh Wheal. His detailed knowledge of the fishing conditions, fish locations and proper set up were outstanding. This led to a wonderful trip on the water. I would unequivocally use your outfitting service, Madison Valley Ranch and Josh again in the future. Thank you for all of your efforts in putting together a superior experience." -Kevin B
"This was a Father's Day gift to my dad. I'm thinking it's going to be hard to beat this year's gift! While we have been fishing for a long time, we are beginners when it comes to fly fishing. Our guides Miles and Matt were great teachers with a wealth of knowledge about fly fishing and Montana as a whole. We had three excellent days of fishing and memories for a lifetime." - Ashley G
"Sweet Grass was a beautiful, clear stream that gave up it’s fair share of small fish but also gave up surprising large fish for it’s size. We caught several 14” - 17” fish with enough regularity that we were always interested in the next run. Personally, I had one 20 minute stretch that I will never forget. It was the best 20 minutes of fly fishing in my life. And I’m not young..." -Dale M
"All I have to say is this is the best trip we've ever had. Montana is unbelievable and so are the people. The fishing was great and our guide, Luke, put us on them. The effort that he put in was unbelievable. He really cared about us having a great time. In camp, our camp guide Heather was outstanding, too. These two really made our trip relaxing and enjoyable. We will return! Thank you Montana Angler!" -Doug S
"I've fished with multiple outfitters in Montana, and I keep coming back to Montana Angler. They have access to some of the best private waters that I've fished, and their guides are consistently the best I've fished with." -Scott Simonet
"Our recent fly fishing trip with Montana Angler met our expectations and then some. This being my first fly fishing trip to Montana I had high expectations and really wanted to catch a cutthroat. When we met our guide, Rob McGillicuddy, on Monday morning he made a good first impression. We had time to talk and he asked about our concerns and expectations. We headed to the Yellowstone River and my first fish was a decent cutthroat, from there the day just got better. We floated the Madison the following day then spent a day walking and wading in Yellowstone Park. Our last day was on a private ranch and both I and my fishing partner caught and released so many browns and rainbows we lost count. What a great time and ending to a great trip. Rob was an amazing guide!" -Doug O
"Just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for the unbelievable experience we just had. This was our first company retreat and our crew is still talking this morning about the unbelievable trip they just had. The fishing was awesome and the guides were great. We cannot say enough about the lodge, location, amenities and hospitality. Needless to say we are all on a diet for the next week. I have fished for a number of years and been to a number of great lodges up the coast of British Columbia. I have had great experiences at them all but nothing like what I experienced this past weekend. For me this was a bucket list trip. We all look forward to returning to Montana and staying with you again. When I messaged my wife on Thursday night to let her know we arrived safe she asked me what it was like there. I replied 'I just found heaven'." -Victor Cimaglia
"From the spectacular fall colors to the stunning architecture, landscaping, and design of the lodge, you would be hard-pressed to find a better setting for a weekend or week's getaway. Top it off with Chef Rory's superb culinary creations, a selection from the wine cellar, hiking, biking, hunting, wildlife watching and guided fly fishing on several blue ribbon trout streams, and perfection approaches!" -John H
"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!"

"Thanks for a “gem” of a day on the Ruby River. My dad was having some trouble wading swifter water so you took him and my brother Jim to the tail waters just below the dam in a hole that gets a lot of pressure and the fish are very wise to the usual patterns. Thanks to your help, they both hooked up on big fish with my dad landing a 22” brown in only his second fly fishing trip. Miles took me and my brother Sam downstream and I was very intimidated by the swift currents but Miles knew the stream very well and by mid afternoon we had landed a dozen with the smallest in the 16” range. We couldn’t have done it without you, thanks!"
Vince Cava ~ West Virginia
"Got back into Pa yesterday. Had a great trip and built some great memories.The fishing during the trip was great. Having mostly fished the east, with only an occasional trip out west, It is always amazing to fish some of the fabled rivers out there. I have always wanted to fish the Firehole and the Gallatin, and the day your guide, Doug, took us out there was fantastic. Doug was a very easy person to spend time with. I've been with some guides who acted like it was a job and I was a customer. Doug acted like it was a day out with his friends, and he was doing what he wanted to do."
Thank him for me again ~ Charlie Dybus
"We had a wonderful time. The fishing was great and we loved the guides Kevin & Tony. Both were very knowledgeable and nice. Great match for our personalities. Elk Crossing was much more than we expected. We LOVED all aspects of this great cabin. Definitely would highly recommend you, your guide services and the lodging. This was a dream vacation:)"

"Just a note to thank you for the great fishing trip. It was a real pleasure to learn the ropes of fly fishing from such a seasoned fisherman.
I had a great time, we caught some great looking fish and saw some beautiful scenery. We'll see you again soon... Best of Luck."
Rick Ireton ~ California
"The support and recommendations you provided could not have been better and your prompt responses to all questions and queries were superb. Thank you for supporting us in planning the trip and for making this a wonderful experience. Montana Angler provided a professional, customized fly fishing experience tailored to our specific interests and level of knowledge. Their highly professional & experienced team delivered a fun and memorable fly fishing adventure." ~ Jill Inverso
"From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by Adam who is such a gracious host and a blast to be around. He was so accommodating and a truly genuine person. He made it easy to relax and soak in the Montana experience from the very first minute. The beauty of Montana is mind blowing! It's an experience I'll never forget and one that I look forward to every year by starting a annual tradition. I found myself wishing we had more days in the trip after getting lost in nature that was breath taking! Our guide Jared was not only professional and very experienced, but his patience in teaching two "newbies" in fly fishing and making us feel so comfortable was greatly appreciated. The stories and conversations around meals and downtime was just as much fun as was the scenic streams, creeks, and lake that we fished. Two days of fishing and 3 completely different fishing experiences. All the while enjoying the breath taking beauty of Montana. Thank you Brian for such an amazing trip and allowing us to create an experience that will never be forgotten! Please let know how much we appreciate Adam and Jared for all they did."
Thank you again ~ Tony Lee
