CrossCurrents’ two stores are locally owned and operated and are truly one-stop, full-service fly shops.  We have a new motel in Craig and can arrange for your lodging on the Missouri River (Motel, Cabins, Houses & Full-Service Lodges).  We offer a trusted Guide Booking Service for the Missouri River, the Smith River and Blackfoot River.  CrossCurrents multi-day Fly Fishing Schools as well as our private and group fly casting lessons offer the best way for beginners to learn this wonderful sport or for intermediate anglers to advanced their skills.  Our classes in fly tying and rod building are a few more ways CrossCurrents earns it’s reputation as the authority on all things fly fishing.  We have top notch equipment rental and drift boat & raft rentals and sales.  By far, the best and the largest fly selection in the entire area.  A rock-solid vehicle shuttle service.  The most knowledgeable, helpful & friendly staff...we all love to fish and share our passion for this sport.  You’ll find the most comprehensive and timely fishing reports and river conditions on this website and on our blog, The Currents Seam and our Twitter feed.  We also have some snazzy photos & videos here and on our YouTube, Instagram & Flickr pages.  You’ll also find us on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram.  We are the area’s exclusive dealer for Orvis, Ex Officio, Outcast and AIRE as well as many other great companies.

Please cast around our website - we hope you’ll find it informative, helpful and fun.

But remember, don’t just sit there surfing the web - get out and fish!
