Officially opened in 1993, Backdoor Outfitters was the dream of the Cook family. With little more than that dream, and an idea of what they wanted to provide( a location where people could come, be treated like family, and explore all the things God provided to this wonderful country we call Montana… at a price that was affordable, yet still provided all the amenities anyone might wish!’) the Cook family headed out to look for property that would provide the base they needed.
Flyfishing. Just mention the word and, as if by magic, all sorts of images appear. Beautiful loops of colored line passing above pristine green waters; anglers hip deep in a mountain stream while clouds of caddis flutter in the foliage of adjoining bushes; or a thick shouldered rainbow held half out of the water while a smiling fisherman reaches down to unpin a stimulator from its lower jaw. These are just a few of the things that come to mind when I hear that word. Of course, it’s more than that, and rightfully so.
