When I first fished with Blackfoot River Outfitters some years ago, I had never even held a fly rod. They set me up with all the gear and had me into fish in no time. I now fish with them every season yet their enthusiastic professionalism never wavers.

"Growing up in Montana but never experiencing the Smith River seemed improbable, so last year I treated my family to the five day trip with the pros at BRO. The adventure completely surpassed our lofty expectations."
