    I can't sing this shop's praises enough. Like any fly shop, it's all about the people manning the counter and on the sticks. I can't speak to this shop's guides, but I can tell you that Thomas--the face of the franchise--is as good as gold. I'm an Idaho boy (born and bred), with multiple generations of Wyoming history and deep roots in the region. I've worked as a fly-fishing and wildlife guide in Montana for over 15 years and manage one of Yellowstone's premier wildlife tour companies, and I'd snag Thomas in a minute. We've been using the South Fork Lodge Fly Shop for our South Fork river trips for years, and it's always been a positive experience, but under new management and leadership, last week's trip to the shop was top-shelf. There's so much sizing up in fly shops these days (so lame and silly), but there was none of that with Thomas. We brought in a crew, some experienced anglers and Idaho folk, while others were kooks from the city, but Thomas treated everyone in our crew with respect and kindness (as all shops should). I can't say enough about the customer service we experienced here last week (if more shop personnel treated folks like Thomas did, the fly fishing world would be a far better place), nor can I recommend these guys enough! Give THOMAS a raise! Make him the shop manager, and call it a day!

    3 years ago I responded poorly to the SouthFork Lodge writing a 1 star review. I am unable to delete this and want to say since that time Zack in the flyshop has gone out of his way to accommodate all my flyfishing needs. Specifically Zack has been extremely professional and courteous. They have the best guide I have ever used, Mike Bean and the best flies in the area...big dries, small dries and an incredible array of streamers.. I could not be more apologetic in my immediate emotional response back then. Please consider this review as representative of how well they deal with all customers, but satisfied and dissatisfied.

    Made the trip from Jackson to South Fork Lodge for dinner. I cannot overstate how wonderful and welcoming the staff were to our family. The lodge is beautiful and the dinner was A+ too! Thanks for the hospitality and taking care of our cowgirl!

    Absolutely, hands down a divine place. The atmosphere is just like you would imagine, rustic authentic lodge, the staff go above and beyond in every capacity. The bar is fun, lively, and great drinks. The views are spectacular. And the fishing guides are knowledgeable of the Snake River, and its surroundings and a hoot to spend the days with.
