Fly Fishing Travel is What We Do...And We Do It Better Than Anyone!

Founded in 2000, Yellow Dog currently works with and represents over 245 different lodges in more than 33 different countries. The company was initially founded by Jim Klug, who began work on the infrastructure and creation of the company in 1999 before officially launching Yellow Dog in 2000. In 2005, Yellow Dog’s Ian Davis left Breckenridge Outfitters, moved to Bozeman, and partnered with Yellow Dog.

When we first opened our doors at Yellow Dog, we were literally a team of one (actually, two … if you count the dog), and initially, we focused exclusively on flats fishing in Central America, offering a small collection of only four lodges. Our first tiny, tri-fold brochure included a cover photo graciously “sold” to us by our friend Brian O’Keefe for the bargain price of one dollar. Since those early days, we’ve grown and expanded our offerings in a steady, balanced, and professional way, building our company and our client base through hard work, innovation, and a commitment to delivering the finest customer experiences in the industry. We have today become the largest and most influential fly fishing travel provider in the industry – still based in Bozeman, Montana, with a fantastic team working out of the Yellow Dog headquarters.

The Yellow Dog Difference
Expert Guidance

As the most knowledgeable professional team in the business, we only book fishing destinations we trust, know, and have experienced firsthand. We listen to your or your group's individual needs and make relevant recommendations based on firsthand, on-the-ground experience. We then assist you in your travel booking process from A-to-Z: incredibly detailed pre-trip planning materials, flights, travel insurance, and more so all you have to do is show up and focus on fishing!

Zero Extra Cost

Booking your next fishing adventure with Yellow Dog will always cost the same amount or less than booking your trip direct. We earn commissions from referrals sent to our lodge partners. But unlike other agencies or fishing travel programs, we never sell a trip based on contracts or exclusives that we have set up with lodges, or beds we’re obligated to fill (because we’re not). At Yellow Dog, we like to say we don't care where you go, as long as it's the right destination for you.

Conservation in Mind

In today's age, we feel strongly that business and conservation initiatives must go hand-in-hand in our industry. It's simply not enough to utilize so many fantastic resources worldwide without giving back to the communities and fisheries we all know and love. Through our non-profit organization, the Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation, we're currently the only fishing travel entity in the world that can - and will - give back with every single trip booked.

Why Should you book your next trip with yellow dog?
Why wouldn't you utilize every resource available to make your next trip great

Most people wouldn’t think of selling a home or buying a new life insurance policy without using an experienced agent. So why should your important fishing vacation – something that involves your valuable time as well as your money – be any different? Working with an experienced, professional agent WILL translate to a better and more successful trip.

We match every client with the right destination

At Yellow Dog, we have a very simple philosophy. We don’t care WHERE you go, as long as it’s the right place and the right match for you. We never sell a trip based on contracts or exclusives that we have set up with lodges, or beds we’re obligated to fill (because we’re not). Rather, with a strong diversity of locations, lodge options, and price points, we can match you and your trip expectations with the right lodge, the right guide, and the right package – at exactly the right time of year.

"Give a Damn" Factor

In this day and age, great service and the concept of truly taking care of customers seems at times to be a thing of the past. Here at Yellow Dog, however, we take our relationship with every single client personally and seriously, and we promise you that we’ll work for you on all levels – at all times – to make your next trip great.

Having the right team in your corner makes all the difference

If we learned anything from recent world events, it’s that things can happen that negatively impact or challenge our travel and trip plans. If and when that happens, you want to be working with the very best team possible: an agent that provides support and solutions to protect your trip investment and deliver real answers and results when needed.

Yellow Dog's services are always free to you

When you book a trip through Yellow Dog, you NEVER pay more than if you book directly with a lodge. You get hands-on assistance, valuable inside information, and support on all levels – all at NO ADDITIONAL cost to you. In fact, it is common that our team can actually save you money (including your time and headaches) versus booking directly.

Incredibly detailed pre-trip planning materials

All of our destination-specific, pre-trip packets are loaded with relevant information on individual fisheries, relevant species, gear and equipment suggestions, packing lists, fly recommendations, and much more. We guarantee that you have never seen materials as detailed, valuable, and useful as what Yellow Dog provides for every destination that we book.
