The Story

Enjoy a superior angling experience with the experts at Orvis-Endorsed Outfitter / Fly-Shop Glacier Anglers, when you fly fish Montana. Glacier Anglers is the premier fly-fishing outfit in and around West Glacier and Glacier National Park. The Middle and North Forks of the Flathead River are incredibly pristine rivers that hold some of the healthiest populations of native Westslope cutthroat trout in America. Westslope Cutthroat trout are an aggressive species of trout that love to eat dry flies throughout the summer and fall.
