The Complete Fly Fisher

The Complete Fly Fisher lodge has perched on Montana's Big Hole River since 1968. One of the first destination, luxury fly fishing lodges, we have cared for anglers from across the globe in grand style, providing spacious & private lodging, superb gourmet dining and unequalled guided fly fishing on SW Montana's trout streams and rivers.  

We specialiize in tailored fly fishing adventures for all levels of ability. Our guides and staff are completely dedicated to caring for all the details necessary to craft the best fly fishing experience possible.  

Although the storied Big Hole River runs right by the front porch, we also fish the Beaverhead, Bitterroot, Missouri and Jefferson rivers and have private access to private ponds.  

All equipment and flies provided! What are you waiting for? 

CFF Chef!

Douglas Durfey grew up in Boise, Idaho, but has lived and traveled around the Pacific Northwest. Douglas has had the rare opportunity to cook as the Chef at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, MT. I have developed my skills as a chef over the years and have found that I have a natural ability to mix spices and flavors to create culinary masterpieces.  

Douglas has very diverse culinary career. He has been a chef at small privately owned restaurants, the Yellowstone Club, and a private ski school in Ketchum Idaho. He has also worked as a private Chef and caterer. With his emphasis on nutrition, fresh foods and eclectic flavor, Douglas has been sought to cook for ski teams during their training camps. He has traveled internationally with ski teams and Olympic hopefuls in the Rocky Mountain and northwest region. 

When Douglas is not preparing your meals, you may find him enjoying the outdoors hiking, fishing or running. He loves spending time with his 11 year old son Jaedon, teaching him to appreciate the outdoors and the beautiful place he calls home. Besides culinary art, Douglas is also an abstract artist. He spends much of his free time creating colorful works of art on canvas.  

Keep it simple and fun.
