New Website & New Vacation Rental

We have been anticipating the announcement of two great additions to our program, and here they are!

First – New Website

After almost a year in the making, we have launched our new website! We encourage everyone to take a look and give us any feedback needed to polish the site and make sure all areas are firing on all cylinders! As most of you know the site was dated, to say the least, and needed a major facelift. New items to the site include an online store that you can purchase TOTF apparel and you can even book your trip(s)  When booking trips you will be allowed to request your dates and we will have a confirmation for you within 24 hours based on availability. We have several testimonials on our site as well. If you would like to add a testimonial please email our way!

Second – New Vacation Rental

As some of you are aware of, we added a new house to our list of vacation rentals. My wife Jen and I built a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in Ennis, Montana, only three blocks from Main Street in Ennis, and only a 2-minute drive to the Ennis fishing access site on the Madison River!  The name we have chosen is The Noble Bison, once you look at the pictures you will understand the inspiration for the name. We are currently booking anglers and would love to have you stay in this well-appointed house during your fishing vacation to Montana. Even though this is available on AirB&B and Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO), we would appreciate you booking directly through us for your stay.


Trade Shows

We would like to thank everyone for stopping by our booth this past weekend in Doswell, VA at the 19th Annual Fly Fishing and Wine Festival. Despite mother nature snowing in the area, we had a wonderful time visiting with the anglers and exhibitors that battled the terrible weather to attend. Thank you!

Fishing Report

Unfortunately, we do not have a current fishing report for you. We have been busy in the office getting ready for trade shows and now we have been on the road for the past week traveling to the shows. We do know that the warm spell last week had anglers getting out to wet a line. Take advantage of those warmer days in the winter months.  The best times to fish during our winter season is from 11am to 2pm when the air temperatures are at their peak. This time of year you should be ready with midge patterns both larvae and adults for when you see heads up feeding. If fishing the Madison River we recommend fishing near Raynolds Bridge, between Hebgen & Quake Lake, and below Ennis Lake. These sections historically will be accessible and ice-free. Make sure you have plenty of fuel in your vehicle when venturing outside during the winter months, bring spare clothing, extra food and let family or friends know where you plan to fish. Another important thing to remember if you are fishing between the lakes to be cautious when fishing below the dam –  the chutes across the river are steep and loaded with snow, this snow does slide into the river creating a wall of water that can wash you off of your feet if you are on the road side of the river. And if you have crossed the river and are fishing on the chute side, you very well could be buried alive with an avalanche that are unpredictable.
