About
Parks' Fly Shop is a full-service fly shop and fly fishing outfitter that has been serving southwest Montana, the Yellowstone River, and Yellowstone National Park since 1953, under continuous Parks family ownership. We are a small "old-fashioned" shop focusing on our region-specific guide service, a large selection of area-specific fly patterns (around 45% designed and/or produced locally), and outfitting anglers for the Yellowstone region. In addition to our fly tackle, we stock conventional fishing gear, bear spray, binoculars and spotting scopes, apparel, and various other odds and ends. You may also be interested in the Gardiner Guesthouse, our affilated B&B, owned by Richard and Nancy Parks.Please check the How-To section of our website or contact us for plenty of free information on fishing the Yellowstone area that will help make your trip a success, whether you're fishing on your own for an afternoon or with our guides for a week.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I did a float trip down the yellowstone with Cody and he met all expectations and then some. Since this was my wife's first time ever fly-fishing I was wondering how he was going to juggle everything. He had her catching in no time which was a bonus for me because it gave me an opportunity to fish these fabled waters and catch my bucket list native cutthroat trout!

We had such a great time with Kody and Wally. Great guides who know the area. Very friendly and easy going. We all had a wonderful day learning to fly fish with them. All four of us caught multiple fish. Highly recommend this.place.

Richard was SO helpful. Rented snowshoes but needed some help getting them to our vacation rental due to hours & Christmas holiday. He worked with owners where we stayed & made it so easy. Gear was in good condition too. Will rent from here again if we are lucky enough to come back

If you are looking for an incredible fly fishing experience, go to Parks Fly Shop. Ask for guides Trevor or Cody. They are both experienced, knowledgeable, patient and friendly. They can take you to typically unfished, remote areas. We spent two days with them, easily caught 10 to 20 fish each day.

Great family owned fly shop. They took time to help me and my wife to get the proper license and tell us were we should go. VERY HELPFUL.
They also rent equipment

My husband and I hired Kody from Park's fly shop for half a day of fly fishing on Yellowstone River. We wanted an adventure and Kody provided it! He guided us on a section of the Yellowstone, and even though the height of tourist season, we were the only ones there. Kody taught us new techniques and we had a lot of fun catching a variety of fish species. I totally recommend Park's fly shop for supplies and for a satisfying guided fly fishing trip!

Walter “Wally” took us down Yankee Jim Canyon and punished the Cutthroat! He’s a real pro and taught us us how to fish the Yellowstone!!! Awesome guide and we’ll be back next year. Thanks Wally for a phenomenal trip!

My family, including two teenaged boys, love to fish on the fly! And when I explained to Walter what we were looking for, he planned the most special experience ever. We wanted the boys to catch trout, and boy, did they ever! And Walter managed to bring us through some whitewater as an added treat for my guys. This trip with these two experienced, pleasant, talented men was a highlight of our summer vacation. Thanks again, gentlemen!
