Overview

Parks' Fly Shop is a full-service fly shop and fly fishing outfitter that has been serving southwest Montana, the Yellowstone River, and Yellowstone National Park since 1953, under continuous Parks family ownership. We are a small "old-fashioned" shop focusing on our region-specific guide service, a large selection of area-specific fly patterns (around 45% designed and/or produced locally), and outfitting anglers for the Yellowstone region. In addition to our fly tackle, we stock conventional fishing gear, bear spray, binoculars and spotting scopes, apparel, and various other odds and ends. You may also be interested in the Gardiner Guesthouse, our affilated B&B, owned by Richard and Nancy Parks.Please check the How-To section of our website or contact us for plenty of free information on fishing the Yellowstone area that will help make your trip a success, whether you're fishing on your own for an afternoon or with our guides for a week.

The owner is very helpful. We would shop there again. He knows a lot about the local waters and what is working at the time.

Really great trip at the end of May 2015. Ben was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and really helpful. We visited two sites on the full-day trip, and caught Grayling, Cutthroat Trout, and Brown Trout. Ben was putting us right on the fish, and I've never been so...More

Richard and his team have all the answers for fly fishing, guide trips and other information on the area. He fixed my fly pole and explained the problem and how to avoid it.

Our fishing family had a great three-boat, half-day float on the Yellowstone River with Richard and two of his guides. The fly shop is well stocked with appropriate tackle.
