NOW Located in historic Downtown Bozeman, The River's Edge on East Main Street moved from its original North 7th Street location in 2020. This store was originally opened in 1983 in an old dairy barn on North 7th Ave by then business partners Dave Corcoran and Greg Lilly. After a few short years, Greg left the business and Dave and his wife Lynn continued on to create one of the most successful fly shops in the country. That is just the beginning of the story as in 2004, long time fishing guides of the shop Dan Lohmiller and Steve Summerhill purchased the shop and have continued its growth with the addition of business partner Daniel Uter.
The River's Edge Fly Shop is focused on providing the best customer service, product selection and fly fishing guide staff found not only in Bozeman, but in all of Montana and the west. With brands like Simms Fishing Products, Sage Fly Rods, Winston Fly Rods, Scientific Anglers, Rio Fishing Products, Smith Optics and Costa Sunglasses, anyone can tell we are dedicated to offering our customers a strong selection of quality fly fishing products. Along with great brands, our expert staff is well trained in product knowledge and always available to answer questions and offer suggestions about not only fishing gear, but also about where to fish on our local waters and be successful. There are no secrets at our shop and we don't have an attitude. There are no silly questions and we love to help expert and beginning fly fishing anglers alike.
