I want to first of all send a huge thanks to Capt. Rob Weiker (aka Tater’s Dad) from Lakestream Fly Shop in Whitefish who kept us on fish the whole time and wouldn’t relinquish his tenure on the oars … (“that man’s a stud!”) and who lined up two cameramen who are making a show for Fox (regional: ID, MT, WA) called “Things To Do In Montana”. This particular episode will feature the Missouri River, near Craig, MT. We floated from Holter Dam to Craig the first day and caught a pile of fish. The second day we did the same float and wrecked ‘em again. (Again, I’ll submit another huge thanks to my friend Rob for his skills as a guide) Third day we tried streamers down low (Mid-Canon to Prewitt), but it was sunny and the bite wasn’t on. The piece will feature all Montana Fly Company flies, and here are the ones that worked like champs: Dunnigan’s Flashback Scud in pink was the #1 killer (32-0620). Other flies that worked were: Firebead Ray Charles in grey (32-0370) and the Tung Micro Worm in red (03-0310).
Special thanks go to local Missouri River guide Eric Mondragon for schlepping the cameramen down the river, and Wolf Creek Angler for their hospitality. Also, Tater the dog for being so well-behaved!

The time has come! Montana Fly Company’s Movember contest is once again upon us.
Movember is a month-long mustache revolution aimed at raising awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. MFC is proud to support the cause and we appreciate all the efforts in upper-lip flora from our friends.
See the flyer below for official contest rules and grow away! This year, we’re giving prizes away to the top 3 ‘staches. First place will walk away with a brand new, re-engineered MFC boat box and new midge-foam leaf insert. Second place earns a waterproof fly case. Third place takes home a set of MFC Hot Grips forceps and nippers.

Montana Fly Company is proud to announce the return of the greatly celebrated and highly anticipated Movember contest! Last year’s contest yielded some absolutely heinous and literally over-the-top entries…but isn’t that the point!? Indeed and we’re expecting an even greater showing (or would ‘growing’ be more appropriate) this year! It’s not quite time yet, but we’re giving those that need a little extra time to work on things, an appropriate head start! Put the razors away for a while and pre-apologize to the important people in your world (husband, wife, children, pets, bosses, parents, grandparents and potentially every possible benign passerby) and get your stache on for a great cause!
Movember is a month-long mustache growing event which encourages mustache growth during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities.
Ready, Set, Grow! Stay tuned for official MFC Movember contest rules and prizes!
We’re at it again! The new River Steel collection of tools from Montana Fly Company has a sharp new style that puts a touch of class and elegance on the water while performing like a barracuda’s iron-trapped jaw when called upon. With a sanded stainless finish on the grips matched with a contrasting matte black finish on the business end of things, the new River Steel tools are cut from the same mold of quality MFC relies on!
The new collection of tools is set to hit the shelves later this fall, in time for the holidays and will make for great stocking-stuffers for your favorite angler! See ya on the water!

How many pairs of discount forceps or nippers does a person really go through in their life…? The constant pillaging of the bargain bin on the counter full of $.99 nippers is outrageous! It’s like the penny dish at the local gas station…have a penny, leave a penny…need a penny, so on and so forth. I’ve never fallen in love with a pair of nippers or forceps and couldn’t really be bothered if they took a nose dive in the river amidst the chaos of landing that one that almost got away… That was until now!
Montana Fly Company has come out with a collection of river tools worthy of drool… the new Hot Grips forceps and snips are set to bring fashion and style to form and function while on the river. With a soft rubber coating on the high-use locations paired with a sharp matte black finish over sturdy stainless steel. Gift those rusty forceps back to your dentist and step into a pair of Hot Grips…going green has never felt so right!
