Richard Parks wrote the book on fly fishing Yellowstone, one of them anyway. Click for more info.
Welcome to the Parks' Fly Shop website. Our shop is located in Gardiner, Montana, within sight of the Yellowstone River and a quarter-mile from the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. All the prime water within the Park, the blue-ribbon portion of the Yellowstone River, and many great private lakes and spring creeks are located within an easy drive, making us the most centrally-located fly shop and outfitter in the region.
The rivers and lakes of the Yellowstone region have been our obsessions and the guiding forces behind our business since 1953. We stock only flies & gear useful within fifty miles of our door, we designed and/or tie around half the flies we stock, and our guide service is a local one, focused on Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone River system, and portions of the upper Missouri River drainage rather than on fly fishing Montana as a whole. Our tight focus gives us unparalleled knowledge of local fisheries.
Give us a call at (406) 848-7314 to set up a guided Montana or Yellowstone fishing trip or check on river conditions. You can also contact us via the e-mail links at the bottom of each page of our site. We look forward to introducing you to the great fly fishing Yellowstone and southwest Montana have to offer.
Richard Parks (email@example.com) is Montana Outfitter #327. We are licensed to guide in Yellowstone National Park, waters in the state of Montana under general regulations, and in the Gallatin National Forest. Contract outfitters are licensed on the Madison River. Walter Wiese (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a USCG-licensed Captain.
9-5 Daily, 10-4 on Sundays.
We'll occasionally be closed to fish, ski, or just because.

First full season forecast posted today. Currently snowpack is running between normal and WAY above normal, so we anticipate overall high water levels this season. Check the News Page for more details on what the current snowpack numbers mean for summer/fall 2014 fishing conditions.
