Fly Fish Missoula, Montana!

As your Missoula Fly Fishing Shop we are dedicated to offering the best flies, Missoula fly fishing reports, fly tying materials, and fly fishing gear available to meet any of your Missoula fly fishing needs. 

Located a few blocks from The University of Montana campus and Downtown Missoula.

The Missoulian Angler began with the vision of Paul Koller. Starting out in a small location in Missoula, Montana, he grew the business on his fly tying experience and expertise with bugs. After a couple of moves around town, the shop ended up in its current location in 2011: 802 South Higgins – just over the Clark Fork River from downtown Missoula on the Hip Strip. A few blocks from The University of Montana campus, we’re walking distance to downtown amenities; restaurants, shopping, and lodging are easily accessible.

As The Oldest Fly Shop In Missoula,

We continue to focus on providing the largest fly selection in Missoula, quality fly tying materials, tying classes and fly fishing lessons for all skill levels, and enjoy teaching others about fly tying techniques. We still believe in the value of walking into a fly shop, being greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff, and checking out what they’re tying on the vise.

The shop staff has over 110 years of combined industry experienced and love to get people into fish. They know the water around Missoula and what it takes to catch fish any time of the year. Half of our staff are also Missoula Fly Fishing Guides, and the other half guided in the Missoula area for fifteen to twenty years. Don’t be fooled, if they haven’t been fishing before coming to work, they will be out on the water that evening.

Coming into town for a Montana Grizzly football game or for a Missoula family vacation? You can find us easily on the corner of 6th and Higgins. Give us a call or stop by to find out what’s fishing.
