Fly Fishing Reels & Lines

It is extremely important that the reel and line match up with your rod to make your casting the most efficient and precise it can be. Offering the highest quality reels from manufacturers like; Lamson, Ross, TFO, and more, the Trail Head has the reel that will best suit your outfit and your needs. Of course, the rod and reel are useless without a line.

The two heavyweight contenders for the best quality lines on the market today are without a doubt, Scientific Anglers and RIO…..and the Trail Head carries them both. There are so many great designs and options when it comes to lines and we have the knowledge and experience to match you and your rod to the best fit.





The Trail Head is primarily a retailer and rental shop for fishing equipment however we do have a relationship with one of Montana’s Premier fly fishing Outfitters, Tom Jenni’s Reel Montana



 Tom Jenni’s Reel Montana is one of Montana’s most versatile outfitting operations.  Tom has been a friend and customer of the Trail Head for 30 years and when we decided to add fishing as a category the decision about who to refer folks to for guided services was easy.



Tom has a corner in the shop that he runs his trips from and while he might be on a statewide road trip chasing fish, his presence and expertise are felt every day in the shop.  If you want to arrange a 5 day trip or just have an afternoon to fish close by Tom, his guides and The Trail Head can accommodate your needs.  He and his guides are on the water almost every day and have good solid information about current conditions.



The Trail Head can sell or rent you the tools for a do it yourself trip but if you would rather have someone who grew up in Missoula and has fished here for over 40 years, guide you we can make that happen too.
