png-image.pngGUIDED TRIPS

BMFS is a full service fly shop, offering guided day trips, casting instruction, and other experiences. The rivers, lakes and streams of Minnesota and Wisconsin are home to a multitude of species. If you want to fish for trout, we can do that. If you want to fish for warm water species like smallmouth bass, carp, northern pike, or musky, we can do that, too! Heck if you want to catch bluegill or sunfish with a fiberglass fly rod, we can most definitely do that, too. We actually REALLY love doing that. The fishing options are almost endless!

To book your trip, email: or the shop at 651.770.5854.
