What Our Customers Say

I’m fairly new to fly fishing – about 4 years now. I’ve been on 4 float trips with Jay in Montana and 3 float trips with 3 different guides in other states – and Jay is by far the best! The most recent guide asked me where I learned to fly fish – for a 60 year old left handed Texas woman I guess I’m not too bad – and told him it was with Jay Dixon in Missoula! Have my husband and I caught fish with Jay? Sure – lots of them – but to me the best part is Jay’s amazing unstoppable upbeat attitude. Float trips with Jay truly are an adventure and I can’t wait to go again!

I have been fishing with Jay since 1999. Each time has been an unparalleled and unforgettable experience. Jay has shown us unbelievable fishing, he has taught us more about the Rivers, Trout, climate, River life and wildlife than a person could ever learn in a classroom or from a book. Regardless of the weather and River conditions, Jay has always put us on trout. When my son was 15, Jay took us out for three days of fishing that a father’s memories are made of, and that books are written about. The care, education and level of comfort that Jay shared and instilled in my son will forever keep him coming back to the sanctity and beauty of the river with respect and admiration. I have fished and hunted with many a guide, and can say with out a doubt, that Jay Dixon is a guide and an overall experience that, if you are able, you have to experience to believe! He is the best, pure and simple!

I’ve fished with Jay for more years than I’m willing admit and he’s consistently guided me into the best days on the river I’ve had. No one works harder or smarter. And while I consider myself an experienced and accomplished flyfisher, I always come away from a day with Jay a better fisherman.

I wish the best for Dixon Adventures. After fishing with Jay for over a decade, I am convinced he is the Man. All of our trips have been an adventure of the Zen kind. Our trips are fun and Jay always manages to find the fish, even when other guides strike out. When I started fishing with Jay I was just a novice and now I am a novice plus. In any case he treats everyone at any level of ability with patience and respect. Last year I took my girl friend on her first float with Jay. With Jay’s tutelage, she caught many fish and had a wonderful experience. We are going back this spring. If you want to see some awesome scenery, catch fish, and have an experience you will never forget, call the Man.

To those looking for a flyfishing guide in the Missoula area: Our group of OLD high school buddies has been using Jay’s services for the last four years on our annual fishing trip and we could not be happier. We’ve used several guides during the past 9 years and Jay is at the top of the list. As you would expect, he is very knowledgeable about the rivers and fishing techniques. But Jay also excels at the intangibles that separate a day on the river from an exceptional experience. Regardless of your experience level, Jay will give you exactly what you need to make the most of your time on the water. When we schedule a day with Jay, we know we’re going to laugh, learn and catch a lot of fish! (and usually get off the river well after dark)
