The position is typically part-time through the end of June and then full-time through mid-September. Wages are competitive with other retail positions in the area and will depend on previous experience and availability during the peak season.
Interested in a part-time, mostly remote job in the fly-fishing industry in 2022? We are hiring support staff to help coordinate our outreach events which include guided trips, schools, classes, and Fly Fish truck events. The ideal candidate will have exceptional organizational and communication skills. The primary responsibility is to act as a liaison between the fly shop, guides, and our customers to ensure that our lines of communication are open and efficient. Typical daily duties will involve administering the assignments of guided trips and coordinating logistical communications between guides and clients. In addition, this administrative role will work closely with our Outreach Director to coordinate staffing needs with a variety of events and classes throughout the year.

- Applicant needs to be "web-savvy" as we work on multiple platforms for reservations and back-end communications
Fly Fishing Guides
We are looking to add a few guides to our current staff of professional fly-fishing guides
in the Bozeman area. Guides need to be registered independent contractors, have commercial auto insurance, current first-aid, appropriate vehicle, and their own boat and equipment. Opportunities exist for part or full-time work from late June through the end of September. Applicants should have a minimum of 2 seasons of previous experience guiding. Applicants with previous experience as guides in Southwest Montana will be given preference. Most of our trips are out of drift boats, so guides with drift-boat experience will be given preference. Applicants are welcome to drop-off a brief resume along with their appropriate paperwork prior to April 15, 2020, for consideration. We will be conducting interviews throughout the spring with qualified applicants.
Stop by the shop to drop off your resume and cover letter or include them in an email to email@example.com. We review applications on a regular basis and keep them on file for one year from the time of application. Previous applicants are encouraged to re-apply as well.
