We spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebrating in Yellowstone National Park. Since Wyoming and Montana are considered to be the Fly Fishing capital of the world, my brother-in-law and I decided to do some Fly Fishing. This was our first time. I booked a trip with Bud Lilly's Trout Shop. It was an excellent experience. It was better then I... More

My wife, two sons, and I have relied on Travis for all his life long outdoor experiences in the Yellowstone area for the last five years. We have fished on all the surrounding rivers as well as rivers in the park. All our trips have been beyond expectations for both fishing as well as education about the area. Travis and... More

This was the first time I spent the money to hire a guide. I was going to be in West Yellowstone for just a day so I contaced Travis. He took me to the "secret spot" and I hooked up wth several fish includng a 17 inch rainbow. Although it costs a couple bucks you don't waste your time trying... More

When you are in West Yellowstone, stop in at Arrick's Fly Shop. You will not be disappointed. Ask for Tony, for help, than ask for Matt as your guide. You can float down rivers, wade rivers, but lake fishing did not appear so glamorous. Let me tell you, you will catch fish in the rivers, but when you fish the... More

My husband and I have traveled to many different places and enjoyed both fresh and saltwater fishing, but all these years we were focused on spinning or baitcasting. Well, this is about to change after a day on the Madison River with Travis. It was absolutely a blast and made our July 4 so memorable! Travis was a great teacher;... More

My wife and I were floating the Madison with Giselle one day and wading inside the park with Travis two days later in August. It is hard to decide which one of the two days was more fun. Gisele was able to make it look easy while moving the boat to every interesting spot in the river, seeing trout rise,... More

My husband and I booked our guided trip after seeing the TA reviews and the day exceeded my expectations. There are no shortage of guides in West Yellowstone but I don't think we could've have had a better experience than our day with Travis. It was our first time fly fishing and I was pretty nervous about it but my... More

Hello. I assume you went out with either Giselle or I (Travis). I am not sure who you are or which date you went out. I would be happy to discuss your experience with you if you give me a chance. I am glad you like the sights and your guide. I wish we could control the fishing and how... More

Spent a full day fishing with Travis on the Madison. He is the consummate professional. He was very patient with me. I feel the lessons I learned from him alone were worth his fee. I caught more fish than I expected. Even though it rained some he made it work. My wife was along was along as a spectator and... More
