Here at Fins & Feathers’ Bozeman fly shop, we have worked hard to bring our customers the best selection of fly-fishing specific waders in Southwest Montana.

If you are looking for the newest, most durable waders for fly-fishing then you should take a close look at the following models for 2020 from Orvis, Patagonia, and Simms. These are the best wader options that we have found for both wade and float fishing in Montana.

Each of these waders have proven to be exceptional in countless hours of rigorous field testing by ambassadors and guides. It’s safe to say that we have never seen a better lineup in the performance wader category with high-grade quality being legitimately offered by so many manufacturers. Stop in our fly shop and check out our complete wader selection out in person, we think you will be amazed by the quality and options that each of these waders has to offer. Although they all come with a 60-Day no questions asked return/exchange policy, the best way to ensure a proper fit is to stop in and try them on for yourself.
