For more than 40 years, Frontier Anglers has been providing guided fly fishing, top quality rods, reels, and waders, gifts and apparel, fly tying supplies, local lodging and far-flung angling destinations — all with a dose of good old fashioned Western hospitality.

We look forward to introducing you to our brand of fly fishing!


"I have known and fished with Shaun for more than 15 years on various rivers in Montana. Shaun's knowledge and enthusiasm for fishing and the mechanics of casting are unsurpassed. Shaun knows the habits of trout and the best flies for each river. Frontier Anglers, under his leadership, has an inventory of all the flies and equipment necessary for success. A day trip on the river with the folks from Frontier Anglers is truly a memorable experience."

– Kenneth E. Czoer

"I have been fishing with Shaun every year for almost 20yrs and have not fished with a better guide in Southwest Montana. I have lost track of how many great fish my friends and I have caught over the years with him. He works very hard to put you on fish, create a memorable experience and help to make you a better fly fisherman. He has helped me organize large and small groups and now that he has taken the helm at Frontier Anglers, things will be even better. The fly shop has the best selection of flies that work on the nearby rivers and gear to help with your trip. Shaun has brought a new energy to the shop and you will not be disappointed in a trip with him or a visit to the fly shop."

"Shaun and Frontier Anglers are a First Class Outfit. The shop has all of your fishing and clothing needs at a reasonable price with exceptionally friendly service.

Shaun is an outstanding outfitter, not to mention very professional. He makes every expedition fun and has a lifetime of knowledge of the outdoors and rivers of Montana. I highly recommend him and can’t wait to return to catch some more big fish!"

– Trey Fitts, Lugoff, SC

"The lunches on our guided fishing trip were delicious."

– Ed V.

"Had a fantastic time and our guide Bernard was awesome!"

– Rick V.

"I was fortunate enough to have my first fly fishing experience in Southwest Montana over 20 years ago with Shaun. Since then I have yet to fish with another guide and have continued to fish with Shaun multiple times every single year. It’s hard to call it “once in a lifetime” fishing because it keeps happening year after year. Shaun is simply the best. His knowledge of the rivers is second to none and he will do whatever it takes to put you on the fish."

– Thurston Childrey, MBA

"Great store, great service. Will be there many more times."

– Jeremiah H.

"I have been traveling from SC to Montana for some time now to fly fish — Frontier Anglers has always been my favorite fly shop from inventory to information. Shaun has always taken very good care of us. His guide service and knowledge are unsurpassed. Tight lines!"

– Ned Jennings

"Beaverhead, Big Hole, Madison, Jefferson, a small stream or a large river, it really doesn’t matter and I’m not sure there is a body of water Shaun doesn’t have knowledge of. When he took over Frontier Anglers, he took an already established Montana fixture and added immediate credibility to the type of guides, gear, and experiences you are sure to get every time you interact. If you want the real Montana fly fishing experience you are a fool if you do not go see Shaun at Frontier! Even more than the incredible fishing, I am happy to call Shaun a great friend and I cannot think of a better compliment than that to give someone."
