3 Best Vehicles for Fly Fishermen and Women

September 3rd, 2015 by

Here in the Gallatin Valley, we are incredibly lucky. We live in the fly fishing capital of the world. With so many access points on the Madison, Gallatin, Ruby, Jefferson, and Yellowstone rivers, you could spend years on the water enjoying the fishing in Montana. Finding the best vehicle for your fly fishing endeavors should be easy. That is why we have compiled what we believe are the three best vehicles for fly fishermen:

Get Wherever You Need to Go with the Chevrolet Tahoe

Fly fishermen are notorious for finding the most off-the-beaten-path routes when it comes to finding the perfect fishing hole. Having a vehicle to get there is high on the priority list. The Chevrolet Tahoe is a favorite among fly fishermen. With the huge cargo area that opens up when the seats are folded down, fly fishermen can store plenty of gear in the 94 cubic feet of space that the Tahoe offers. Want to bring your fishing buddies? Their gear will fit, too! With the space and the ability to take you off-roading, the Chevrolet Tahoe is a fly fisherman’s dream vehicle.

The Fly Fisherman’s Best Friend: The Toyota Tacoma

When you ask most fly fishermen in the Gallatin Valley which vehicle they recommend for fly fishing, chances are you will get a lot of responses such as, “I drive a Toyota Tacoma.” It is no surprise, really. The Tacoma offers the versatility, the four-wheel drive, and a spacious truck bed that makes fly fishing easy and fun. Store all of your equipment in the back and have room for your fishing buddies up front. The best part is the EPA-estimated 21 MPG that the Tacoma offers. For a truck with this kind of versatility, it is a leader in fuel economy. Feel free to wander out to find the best streams and creeks in or out of the Bozeman area. You won’t have to pay more to drive to your fishing adventures.

The Zippy SUV with Ultimate Versatility: The Toyota 4Runner

If you are looking to spend a little less on the ultimate fly fishing vehicle but still want something that will carry your fly fishing equipment and get you through some rough back roads, then the Toyota 4Runner is perfect for you. With a starting price just over $30,000, you will love the versatility this SUV offers. You will love the zippy ride, the spacious cargo area, and the comfort for your friends. Fly fishing will be more than just a weekend excursion with the 4Runner – you will want to take it out every evening.
