    At Gallatin River Guides,and throughout Montana, we've seen an exponential growth in number of women anglers. We've also brought into our guide crew several unique, hard-working, and fishy women. For summer 2015, we decided to blend the two and create the Montana Women's Fly Fishing School. Five days of friendship, fun, and fly fishing. The idea began a few years ago with our Gallatin River Gals weekly gatherings and, now with the huge success of the Montana Fishing Guide School, we decided to have a school just for women. The school's mission is simple: to educate, enlighten, and inspire women fly fishers in a supportive, noncompetitive environment. To fish and have fun. 

    For more information visit our website or call the shop and ask for Pat or Jimmy and they'll fill you in. If you want to have fun, make some new friends, and fish Montana's beautiful trout streams with professional women guides, then contact us today.
