ABOUT BIGFORK ANGLERS FLY FISHING SHOP AND GUIDE SERVICE
Bigfork Anglers is a family owned business. We are the Flathead Valley's only outfitter owned / operated fly shop and guide service.
Owner, outfitter, guide, and shop manager - Jason Lanier has been fly fishing Montana rivers for over 20 years and has been guiding Montana fly fishing trips for 15 years. With guiding experience on over a dozen Montana rivers he has guided just about every hatch Montana has to offer.
Jason started fly fishing in the 1st grade and tying flies shortly after. He spent many of his childhood summers traveling around Montana fly fishing anything that held fish. After high school he moved to Montana to fish, ski, and attend college (in that order). After receiving a B.S. from the University of Montana he decided a drift boat was much better than a desk and continued to pursue his passion. Over the years Jason has made the transformation from shop dog, to fishing guide, to commercial fly designer, to outfitter & fly shop owner. Jason lives in Bigfork with his incredible wife and two great boys.
Jason is also a licensed USCG Captain and certified whitewater rescue technician.
Jason is an inventor of many productive trout flies that have fooled fish on rivers across the country. Montana Fly Company produces Jason's flies and many fly shops carry his proven patterns. You can find his fly the "Strung Out" streamer in the latest Cabela's catalog.\
We are the only outfitter owned fly shop in the Flathead Valley and we are involved in every aspect of our business. We have been organizing fly fishing trips and guiding folks down Montana rivers for 15 years. As a result we understand what it takes to provide a high quality expierience on the water.
In the past 15 years we have established a vast network of accomplished guides. Most of which have been guiding 10+ years. Our guides want you to have a successful trip and they work hard to get you into fish. Our guides take their job serious. They all have quality drift boats, rafts, and fly fishing eqipment to make sure you have an enjoyable day on the water.
With our close proximity to Glacier National Park we do a lot of guiding on the Flathead River System. The Flathead is a great river for all skill levels and offers great dry fly fishing for native Westslope Cutthroat. Our guides specialize in instructional fly fishing trips and are all patient teachers. We also offer trips on numerous other rivers near by for those looking for a little more adventure. We do our best to match our guests with the guide and river that will help them enjoy their day on the water.
