Fly Shops


Madison River Fishing Company

Phone 800-227-7127 website: www.mrfc.com

One of the great fly fishing shops in Ennis and the place I started my fly fishing career. Second oldest fly shop in Ennis helping fly fishing anglers worldwide since 1984. MRFC offers a wide range of fly fishing products including fly tying and rod building. Print or online catalog supported by great prices and the best customer service. Conveniently located in downtown Ennis. I guide for the Madison River Fishing Company.

Montana Trout Stalkers

Phone (406) 682-5150 website: www.montanatrout.com

Montana Trout Stalkers is one of the newer fly fishing shops in Ennis. Although newer does not mean they lack experience as the owner Joe Dilschneider has been an outfitter in Madison Valley for many years. Is a Captain and has years of salt water experience. Friendly staff, located in downtown Ennis and offering a good selection of products. I am also on Trout Stalkers guide staff.


The Tackle Shop

Phone (406) 682-4263 website: www.thetackleshop.com

I think the longest running fly shop in Ennis, Montana. In business since 1937 The Fly Shop is a great shop. Owner Outfitter John Way has done a great job since taking over. Another Ennis, Montana fly shop with a staff that has years of experience on the Madison River and Southwest Montana.
