This is a wonderful fly shop for the hard core fly fisher. The staff makes you feel welcome. They provide excellent tips on how and where to fish. They have the flies that you NEED and they will not try to load you up with a bunch of unnecessary things. Cam (owner) and Bucky McCormick (head dude) are wonderful people.... More

This is far in away the best fly shop in West Yellowstone, Montana. The staff is friendly, extremely knowledgeable and courteous to the expert fly fisher as well as the beginning fly fisher. The shop is well equipped with all the items needed for a successful day on the water. The guides are outstanding. I would recommend Blue Ribbon Flys... More

We purchased our Fishing Licenses here. We had 3 diff families (total 10 people) in our group. Staff was patient and very helpful as they had to input individual info for the 10 of us. Conveniently located across the street from the hotel we stayed at (Best Western Weston) and the cute touristy area near entrance to West Yellowstone. Would... More

I have been reading the BRF newsletter for a very long time now and I have placed countless orders for fly tying materials with them as well. They are a constant source for fly tying and fishing information in the Yellowstone area. I also really enjoy the YouTube fly tying videos they have posted with their unique fly patterns. They...

I have been a regular customer here for three decades now - this shop is a legend among knowledgeable fly fishers. Their flies and materials are elegant and innovative, the guides are experienced and top notch, and the place is like coming home to see old friends thanks to the owner Craig Matthews who has written many books about fishing...

...this would be my last. This review is solely related to an experience with one guide. The other staff and guides at Blue Ribbon are Best in Class. Despite our previous floats, we are novices and could not have been more up front about this fact. We were with two other people, one of whom has been fly fishing for... More

I have been fly fishing in Montana for over 15 years. Blue Ribbon Flies is the best place for all of your fishing needs. They offer float trips, all fly tying supplies, fishing equipment, clothing and most importantly updated fishing reports for all area rivers. Their weekly newsletter keeps you up to date on what is happening all year long.... More

There is no shortage of fly shops in West Yellowstone, but there is only one Blue Ribbon Flies. The difference is the people. BRF is what every fly shop aspires to become. From Craig and Bucky in the shop, to an excellent staff of guides, to the seasonal staff, they take the time to listen to you in order to... More

Blue ribbon has always been my go to place for fishing in the West Yellowstone area, staff is always helpful and willing to answer questions. We have been clients of theirs for over 10 years. If you plan on fishing the area a trip to Blue Ribbon is a must.
