Montana fly-fishing getaways on a budget
Question: I want to surprise my husband with a trip for both of us — fly-fishing. I need affordable, rustic lodging with an upscale feeling, great cuisine, options for guided day trips, as well as freedom to explore on our own. I was thinking Montana or Wyoming. It’s our third wedding anniversary and I have frequent flyer miles for two. Help me find a location that meets my $1,500 budget for a week.
Though these may be equally expensive, I suggest you call the following lodges to find out if they offer low-season rates or any specials: the Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana (406-995-4644), and the Absaroka Ranch in Wyoming (307-455-2275).
