Default Big Horn Fly & Tackle

Another fly shop in Billings is going to close after the first of the year.
Has some nice mark downs on rods and gear. Owner says he's going to
build a new shop near his other place in Ft. Smith. So they'll be three active
fly shops again plus the little one at the Cottonwood Camp Ground.

I lived in Billings for 4 years. At the high-point during that time, we had 3 shops plus a tying shop and Cabelas. With Dwayne closing down Bighorn Fly in Billings, the town will be down to 1 shop, 1 tying shop, and Cabelas.

The one shop being East rosebud? I like to support local when I can, sucks the closest shop for me is Columbus. While I normally go-to Billings, which is hour+ away. It's cheaper for me to order online, but what fun is that.....

Don't forget about "The Wild Fly" on Moore Ln. Great guys there. They lean more towards tying than tons of gear but a great shop all the same.

Neil,

I stand corrected. You reminded me that the last time I was in Wild Fly (the tying shop I referred to) they had started carrying a rods, reels, etc in addition to have a great supply of tying supplies.

Rainbow Run closed about 2 years ago and now with Bighorn Fly closing, that does leave East Rosebud as the only other full-product shop in town.

Shortyb, I thought Stillwater Anglers was in Columbus?

Shortyb, I misread your location, thought you were in Columbus. Two mistakes in one thread, obviously the international trip I returned from last night is kicking my arse!

Scheels is moving out to King and Shilo next
year with an enormous new facility. Word is they'll
upgrade with a real fly shop within.

Columbus also has a nice little shop.

Nice did not know that. Most the time that's what I'm going for any way, I should check them out.

Stillwater is a nice little shop, but nothing in Columbus to make my way that direction. I do pop in time to time if I'm going to Bozeman, other than that.. East Rosebud is a neat shop too, really one of my favorite shop I've ever been in. Most shop guys (no offence to any one here) can be pretentious at times. You can't beat a A/C D/C themed shop logo, just rockin. Let alone the guys someone that you would just love to fish with, super nice and just a fun guy to talk to.

Dan Bailey's is actually a great experience, unexpected.
