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 is Montana outfitter #327. Walter Wiese is Montana outfitter #22001. 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 is a USCG-licensed Captain authorized to run power boat trips on all inland waters of the United States.

Walter has been on a roll! He has published two books since early December. The first River Characters, is a collection of fly fishing stories and essays running 180 pages. It is available in both print and e-book editions. Contact Walter if you would like to order an autographed edition. If you'd like to purchase the e-book, simply click the image below. The print version runs $10.95 if ordered through Parks' Fly Shop, but Walter has a limited number of pre-production copies available for a buck less.
