Gardiner Chamber of Commerce: Complete listings of almost all area lodgings and most businesses and services can be found here.
Yellowstone Raft Company: whitewater rafting on the Yellowstone River. There are other companies, but this is the oldest and most professional, and they have the longest standard trips, since they have permits to use access points the other companies do not.
Yellowstone Wolf Tracker: wildlife watching in YNP. Contract guide Mike Leach runs some of their trips.
Coolworks: want to work in or near Yellowstone or another national park? Coolworks is the premier seasonal employment jobs database in the country, and is based just north of Gardiner.
Gardiner on Wikipedia: we are mentioned and also have our own entry, and no we didn't write it, though we sure didn't say no when a Bozeman resident indicated his interest in putting one up about us.
Gardiner Five-Day Weather: from Yahoo!
Reviews of Gardiner Lodging: at Trip Advisor.
Gardiner Guesthouse: Our affiliated B&B, owned by Richard and Nancy Parks.
Yellowstone River Motel: Walter Wiese's father stays here. This is the closest motel lodging option to our shop and offers good foot access to the Yellowstone and Gardner Rivers.
Absaroka Lodge and Big Rock Innl: Both the Absaroka (pronounced Ab-sore-ohka, as far as we can tell) and the Big Rock Innare owned by one of our regular clients. The Absaroka is slightly fancier.
Many other lodging options are available, ranging from motels to rental cabins to campgrounds. Please check the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce website for all of them. We do suggest you choose an option that's locally owned if possible. Most lodging in Gardiner fills up quickly, so don't put off your reservations.

General Montana Links
Visit Montana: a wide range of travel and tourism resources if you're planning a trip to Montana.
Bridger Bowl: Bridger Bowl is probably the finest nonprofit ski/snowboard area in the country. Owned by the city of Bozeman and boasting 2700 feet of vertical inbounds and 300+ inches of luscious powder every year, it's no wonder Walter is a season pass holder (Jeez, I should write copy for them).
General Fishing Links
Murray's Fly Shop: we have no idea how many customers Harry Murray has sent us over the years. Visit his shop on the Shenandoah.
Streamside Orvis: ergo for Streamside Orvis in Traverse City. They are the only place besides our store where you can get our custom Magic Sauce Fly Floatant.
Curtis-Wright Outfitters: The boys from Curtis-Wright in Asheville, NC bring us out a large group that fishes with us every year. Check them out if you're looking to fish western NC or eastern TN.
Fly Tying/Fishing Resources:
Fly Anglers Online: This is probably the most active of the fly fishing boards these days. Walter posts as "Longs for Cutts." Lots of good fly recipes get posted here.
Fly Tying Videos: lots of fly tying video links here, of varying quality.
Trout Nut: lots of great info on aquatic insect entomology.
