“To all our friends and fellow anglers, the transition from Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop to Big Sky Anglers is now complete.  For over 22 years, Barbara and I have looked forward to each season-renewing old friendships, seeing familiar faces as well as meeting new folks and making new friends.  We will miss that.  But at the same time we are looking forward to the changes being brought about by Big Sky Anglers owners Joe, Justin, and Jonathan.  They are bringing a new look with a new level of excitement to the corner of Madison and Canyon-join us in wishing them the best.”  – Dick Greene & Barb Klesel

Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop is now Big Sky Anglers.

Long-time local guides/outfitters Justin Spence (The West Yellowstone Fly Shop), Joe Moore (Big Sky Anglers), and Jonathan Heames (Jonathan Heames Fly Fishing/Trouthunter) have merged and acquired Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop.

We will maintain our commitment to providing the best guided fishing experience available.  Our staff will include Justin, Joe, and Jonathan as senior guides and owners, plus your favorite guides who worked for Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop and the West Yellowstone Fly Shop.

Our home base is in the classic location made famous by Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop at the corner of Canyon and Madison in West Yellowstone.  Stop in and see us this coming season.  We are excited to get to know so many more great folks who share our love for Yellowstone Country!
