A Customized Fly fishing Experience
While there are many appetizing rivers in the area, BTFF recommends the Yellowstone and Boulder for overall appeal. The Yellowstone is fished walk/wade  or floated from a comfortable drift boat/raft, with stops at ‘hot’ riffles, pools and side channels.
The Boulder is a wader’s banquet of pocket water and undercut banks. For the largest portion of the season it is fished walk/wade.  Seasonally, it can be fished from a comfortable raft with stops at ‘hot’ riffles and pools or by walk/wade.  When the water  is right, the float fishing can be fantastic!
Whether you’re an expert or neophyte fly fisher, BTFF custom-tailors our services to accommodate your desires. Instruction if you a want or helpful but ‘hands-off’ guiding.
Even our stream side picnic feasts can be customized to
