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

Dave Kumlien



Dave is Montana Licensed Outfitter No. 281. He started guiding fly fishermen in the Bozeman area in 1975 as a guide for the Beaver Pond Sport Specialists, and in 1978, he started Montana Troutfitters. Dave ran his business for 20 years and sold the shop in January 1998.

Dave feels blessed to have a wonderful family and to have the opportunity to live and work in beautiful Bozeman, Montana, in the heart of the finest trout fishing in the world! And he admittedly introduced his son to his fly fishing addiction at a young age, and is proud to be the outfitter of record for Montana Troutfitters some 30 years later for his son Kristopher the GM.
