Our Fly Shop

The Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop was born on the banks of Rock Creek during the summer of 1988. Founder, Jim Toth, ran the shop seasonally for two years out of an extra room in his home before moving the Grizzly Hackle to its current location in historic downtown Missoula in 1990. The shop grew quickly with a reputation for quality gear and service and some of the best guides around. Life-long friends Dan Shepherd, Steve Jensen and Ray Coleman bought the Grizzly Hackle in 2001. Already a successful business, these fishing fanatics wanted to take the Grizzly Hackle to the next level. Dan’s enthusiasm and work ethic are unmatched, and along with Steve and Ray’s business savvy they have built the Grizzly Hackle into western Montana’s premiere fly shop and outfitter. The first two decades have been great, and we look forward to providing the best service to our customers for decades to come.
