​BMFS is a full-service fly shop offering guided fishing trips to some of the best area waters. Trips vary from full-day float trips for smallmouth bass, pike or muskies, to half or full day walk/wade trips on some of the greatest trout streams the midwest has to offer. All rates are for 2 participants. We prefer to take you out on a weekday as river and lake traffic are at a much more pleasurable level. Trips are offered March through November. Certain species of fish may not be available at certain times of the year, but we will gladly recommend other options. If you do not have any gear we will provide it for you. Call the shop if you would like more info on any of these trips.

When someone imagines fly fishing, this is what they picture. The Driftless Area is characterized by spring creeks, limestone bluffs, and beautiful forests.

This trip is also available as a night trip or a winter fishing trip for the brave. Half $225/Full $350


We live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. And there is no shortage of lakes nearby filled with all sorts of warm water monsters. Interested in trying your luck at a muskie or pike on the fly? Maybe hard-hitting largemouths are more your speed? This trip can be tailored to your fishing level and goals. HALF $300/Full $425


Minnesota is a warm water fishing paradise. In addition to lakes, this area has a ton of great rivers too. Our knowledgeable guides know these waters well and are eager to get you into a smallmouth bass, pike, and even a potential muskie. When floating in either a drift boat or a raft, you’ll cover more water than wading. Both boats are easy to fish out of and provide stability through rough waters. HALF $300/Full $425
