Introduction to The Tackle Shop:
The Tackle Shop, located along the Madison River in Ennis, Montana was established in 1937 and is the oldest continually operating fly shop in Montana. We are a full line Orvis dealer among other major fishing brands, as well as the 2017 Orvis Endorsed Outfitter of the Year. We operate an outfitting business out of the store, focusing on the waters of the Madison River, Yellowstone National Park, the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, Missouri, Clark Fork, Jefferson, Big Hole, and Beaverhead Rivers. We operate an online store as well as a website for advertising purposes, including blogs, fishing reports, and links to our social media platforms. During our offseason, we host trips to Belize and beyond, constantly growing our reach and influence. Here at The Tackle Shop, we are the Madison River experts.
