FLY FISHING CUBA | Hosted by The River’s Edge Fly Shop


Have you ever wanted to Fly Fish Cuba?

Now is your chance! As some of you know from our recent evening event, we do have a hosted trip to Cuba and the Jardines de la Reina planned for the week of May 23-30, 2015. This trip is aboard the Tortuga houseboat, which is located in the heart of the area known as the “Gardens of the Queen.” We have selected this specific week due to the fact that it is a prime week for tarpon action! There are also bonefish and permit in the area, and we believe that overall this is the very best time of the season to fish this region.

This trip will be led and hosted by the owners of The River’s Edge fly shop along with a member from Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures here in Bozeman.  Yellow Dog will handle all logistics and details for the trip. Scientific Visas are going to be included in the package, and they are being arranged through the group, “Ocean Doctor.” This will allow everyone to travel and fish legally in Cuba.

Information and Cost

Package costs are $7,395.00 per person for a week aboard the Tortuga, which includes all flights from Cancun to Havana, all visa and visa processing fees, legal entry paperwork, and the full fishing and lodging package for the week. Again, the dates for the fishing package are May 23-29, 2015, which means that everyone will need to fly from Cancun to Havana on the morning of May 22, and return to Cancun on May 31.

We have a number of spots available for this specific week, and would be happy to talk with all of you in more detail about the trip!  Please feel free to contact us at any time at The River’s Edge Fly Shop, or contact Jim Klug at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing and we can answer any questions that you have.  We have already filled a number of these spots, and expect that this trip will book quickly once we begin promoting the week. If you have any interest at all, please let us know right away!

Additional Information

To help with the initial planning and consideration process, we have attaching some additional details about the Tortuga package and the fishing in the Jardines. Take a look below for more information and call or email us whenever it is convenient for you!

Simms Sportswear | Coming Soon!


Coming up in about a month, we will be receiving a lot of new gear from Simms Fishing Products. We are super excited about it, and wanted to give you a sneak peak into a couple of the new products. Keep checking back for more updates on the new gear! Time to get your Christmas lists started!biminiSSshirt1

The Bimini SS Shirt is a great new casual piece.  This is part of the Off-Water collection for Simms, however as with all of their products, there is plenty of fishing DNA built in.


  • Cotton blended shirt with a water, stain, and wrinkle-resistant Teflon® finish
  • Button secure, bellowed chest pocket
  • Slightly shaped hem
  • FABRIC TECH: 52% Cotton, 48% Polyester with Teflon® water finish

Whether you’re headed out for a night on the town, or in transit to your next fishing adventure, the Bimini Shirt will be sure to keep you comfortable and looking good.


The Espirito SS Shirt is another one of our favorites in the Casual side of the line. This shirt is not new, it was released last season, however it has received a color make-over for this season. Bright, and vibrant colors…we think it’s going to be a popular one.


  • Soft cotton blend fabric with Teflon® water, stain, and wrinkle resistant fabric
  • One button-secure chest pocket
  • One zippered chest pocket
  • FABRIC TECH: 55% Cotton, 45% Tencel with Teflon® finish


Sometimes simple is better. Take for example the Morada LS and SS Shirt. Bone stock, basic pocket, but all together an excellent fishing, or Off-Water shirt.


  • Lightweight blended fabric with Teflon® water, stain, and wrinkle resistant finish.
  • Fly box compatible pocket
  • Off-shoulder seams for comfort
  • FABRIC TECH: 62% Nylon, 38% Polyester with Teflon® finish
  • Available in 3XL

Whether you are spending a long August day on the Yellowstone River, casting to tailing bonefish on a Belizean flat, or it’s just another week day at the office, the Morada will be a great shirt to add to your arsenal.

*New products are expected mid November.*

Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Presentation | The River’s Edge Fly Shop


Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 2, at 7:00 for a Presentation at The River’s Edge West!

The guys from Yellow Dog Fly Fishing will be here, as well as the owners of Avalon Fly, to present to you all of the details about FLY FISHING IN CUBA!

It’s going to be a great night, and certainly not an event you will want to miss. As always, refreshments and light appetizers will be served, and there will be plenty of time to pick the brains of the team that goes above and beyond to make your Fly Fishing Adventure the best possible.

Fly Fishing in Cuba can be described in one word…. AMAZING.

In addition to this presentation, The River’s Edge will also be hosting a trip to Cuba this coming MAY aboard the Tortuga Houseboat in the Jardines de la Reina (the Gardens of the Queen).

The group will be traveling down with a scientific visa for a week of fishing for permit, bonefish and tarpon. The dates of this trip are May 23-29, 2015, and we will have more details at the Thursday night event.

Here are some excellent photos from Cuba, shot by Co-Owner of Yellow Dog Fly Fishing, and well-known Outdoor Photographer, Jim Klug.

Fresh Fishing Reports | September 22, 2014.



We keep you updated for all of our local rivers. What’s happening, what they’re eating, and where to go. If there are any rivers you don’t find, and need a report on, stop by or give us a call. Often times we’ve either fished them recently, or have heard from someone who has.

September is a GREAT month to fly fish in Montana. Get out here! We have a few guide trip opens in the next couple of weeks, so if you’re looking for an expert to take you out and get you into some Wild Montana Trout, look no further. We’ll get you taken care of. We have the BEST GUIDES in the state.

For more information on Montana Guided Fishing Trips, visit the Guided Fishing Trip page on our Website, or give us a call at either our North 7th Avenue or West shop (406.586.5373 – North 7th Ave or 406.284.2401 – West) and we can answer any questions you may have.

Update on Yellowstone River


The Yellowstone River is looking good this morning. What ever rainstorms were happening in the Park likely turned to snow, and it would seem that the mud plugs have moved down. We will keep you posted on any other reports we hear!


Yellowstone River at Pine Creek

If you’re thinking of fishing today, we would have to say that it is a good idea! It’s a little chilly right now, but that doesn’t mean the fishing won’t be good. We could see a great Fall BWO hatch today, as well as various other mayflies. Don’t leave home without your small dry box. Parachute Adams, Purple Haze, and Para Wulffs will be your friends today. If you’re into throwing some meat, bust out the streamer rod and line up the sink tip. We’re just getting into prime-time for Fall fishing, and some of the best streamer fishing of the year.

Good luck if you get out! Stay warm and dry, and if you are in need of any reports, info on rivers, gear, bugs, or just want to talk fishing on this gloomy day, swing by either shop and say hi!

Yellowstone River | Possible Mud Plug


Judging by the Lamar River Streamflow Report, and the Pine Creek Webcam, there appears to be a bit of a mud plug moving down the Yellowstone River.

The Lamar saw a pretty good spike a couple hours ago, so our guess would be that there will be some mud moving down shortly. It’s already dropping down, so it shouldn’t last long. We’ll keep you posted on the clarity! If you’re up there, give us a call and let us know how it’s looking!





Steelhead rivers are some of the last pristine, pure water systems left on the planet. We need to do our part to protect those that are left, and to help restore those that have not been treated with much respect.

Head out to the The Emerson Center for Arts and Culture, here in Bozeman on Tuesday, September 16th, at 7:00 PM to learn more about the journey of the Wild Steelhead and the obstacles they face along the way. There will be a showing of “WILD REVERENCE” by North Fork Studios.

When headed out on a weekend fly fishing adventure, there are a few things you don’t want to leave home with out…

Your Fly Rod

A key part of your gear arsenal when fly fishing….

Your Fly Box/Boxes

Another essential piece of gear. Typically, landing fish without a hook can be quite difficult.
