Montana Troutfitters is Bozeman’s oldest fly fishing shop Since 1978

Chad Buckridge


Hailing from Colorado, Chad “Bucky” Buckridge moved to Bozeman 5 years ago. On life’s journey to Bozeman, Bucky dabbled as a professional golfer, international ski-marketing manager and boat builder/painter at RO Drift Boats. With all of this change, one thing remained, fishing. As a young child he was lucky to have a grandfather place a fly rod in his hand and a father instill within him the passion to wake up before dawn and get on the water. This has always been a constant and favorite pastime. When not in the shop you’ll find (or not find) Bucky and his Border Collie, Murphy, sneaking around little creeks in town or walking the banks of all our amazing local water. Please say hello when you see him!
