The River's Edge Fly Shop was originally established in 1983 and was built out of an old dairy barn on North 7th Avenue on what was then the outskirts of Bozeman. Through many seasons of drought years, high water years and lots of fantastic fishing stories and hard work, that shop has continued to grow into Bozeman's largest and best fly shop. In the spring of 2020, the original shop location was moved to the Nash Finch Building on the East end of Bozeman's Historic Main Street.
Now rebranded as Simms at The River's Edge, we are situated next to the Bozeman Public Library and across the street from one of Bozeman's busiest restaurants, Montana Ale Works. For over 35 years we have been the in the epicenter of fly fishing in Bozeman and in Southwest Montana and look to continue that in our Bozeman Main Street location.
In April of 2013, we opened up our second location, The River's Edge West in Four Corners to service our clients headed to different fishing destinations not convenient to our original Bozeman Fly Shop location. The River's Edge West is located at 59 North Star Lane, where we are the retail location by our parent company Simms Fishing located right next door.
At both of our stores, you'll find we have an incredible fly selection, a full line of Sage, Winston, and Scott fly rods, not to mention fly fishing reels from Ross, Waterworks Lamson Fly Reels, Sage Fly Reels, and Hatch Fly Reels, and lines, leaders and tippets from Scientific Anglers and Rio Fishing Products. Our sunglass displays hold quality glasses from Smith Optics, Costa, Suncloud and Fisherman's Eyewear.
Lastly, you will still find the exceptional customer service that we have become known for. We look forward to seeing you in our stores!
