Grizzly Hackle

For all of the romanticism and iconic imagery associated with anglers in western Montana, it’s one damn difficult hobby. For every photo-worthy whopper we’ve ever caught there have been two or three other endeavors where we’ve returned talking about how nice it was just to be outside and on the river. Baloney. You want to hook something and the fine folks at Grizzly Hackle can help in a variety of ways. Gear? No problem. Flies? Yep, and they’ll tell you which ones work best where and why. Guides? You bet. It’s worth a visit to avoid any frustration next time you hit the water. Nobody actually believes any of that “It was just nice to get out there” stuff anyway. Grizzly Hackle: 215 W. Front St, 721-8996,
