MFO (Garrett) set me up with Guide Drew Christian. Drew is knowledgable, patient, and great company on the water. The Missouri is a beautiful river with lots of big, strong trout. Drew expertly put me on fish all day long. It was a gas! I will be back.

I rarely say "best trip EVER" but this first trip to Montana and my first shot at fly-fishing with local guide Russ Dobrzynski was truly my Best Trip Ever in Montana. First of all, the guy is a total pro. I learned more in 1/2 with Russ about everything from the correct casting form to the very detailed entomology of... More

Fished the Missouri River out of Craig, MT. Beautiful scenery, caught lots of fish ( and missed a lot too-our fault). John LaRue is the best guide I have ever had--knowledgeable, patient, and a great teacher.

My buddies and I did a fly fishing bachelor weekend with MFO. There were 6 of us, so we needed 3 boats/guides. The fishing was excellent -- exceeded our expectations. We also had a good experience with our knowledgeable/friendly guides. Each of us caught 5-8 trout per day, mostly chubby rainbows (a couple browns), averaging 14-18". The largest fish in... More

Coming to Montana seeking quality fish? Connect with MFO. We fished the Madison River with MFO's Guide Aaron Broughton. He's great. We caught quality Rainbow and Brown all day. Coming in, we were accustomed to fishing still water, but Aaron had us on track with moving water from the start. (My apologies Aaron for 1st few breaking my line !)......Moving... More

Garrett Munson is a fantastic guide who will cater to the guest's ability and fishing preferences. The Missouri River is an amazing stretch of water and Garrett knows it like the back of his hand. Can't recommend MFO and Garrett enough. Book now! You will be glad that you did!

Everything worked out perfectly - met the guides with no problem, they had everything as arranged and I could not ask for better fishing. As a South African a long way from home there was plenty to talk about, so lots of interesting conversations. The first day with Mark I lost count of the number but must be 30-40, most... More
