Explore Rentals was founded on the premise of offering the right rental cars and rental gear to visiting anglers. If you are planning to fly-fish in Montana, using Explore Rentals will change your experience. In addition to offering rental cars that will get you the places you want to fish, we also offer rental fly-fishing gear, drift boats, Trout Bum ‘accessories,’ and itinerary advice for visiting anglers. Explore also allows towing of drift boats and rafts with some of our rental vehicles.

Having extensive experience in the international fly-fishing lodge management industry, Explore’s owner/ founder realized the difficulty of bringing all of the gear you want during your trip with you on the plane. Although we do offer rentals of some of the small stuff, like rods and reels, the majority of our offerings are the larger/ bulkier items that are not quite as personal as a rod and reel- and take up a lot of space in checked luggage. For some background on Explore’s the owner’s experience in the fly-fishing industry, check out some of the links here.

In addition to those ‘must haves’ for your Montana Trout Bum trip, such as a cooler, we also offer those subtle items that convert a good trip into a great experience. For example;  custom interior storage boxes, the right maps, roof  box to put your stinky wet waders, interior or exterior rod racks, camp chairs, wader mats- etc. We know fly-fishing and we know road trips.

Whether you are staying at a lodge, on a friends ranch, or being a full scale camping Trout Bum- we have the rental cars and the rental gear to make your Montana Experience a complete success. In addition to our offered rentals, we are also more than happy to help with your itinerary planning, accommodation recommendations, and putting you in touch with our extensive list of trusted outfitters. Through our sister company, Montana Glamping Company, we are able to offer bespoke luxury overnight packages on private

We have hosted visiting anglers from Italy, France, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, New Zealand, Australia, England, Germany and all over the US- and most of them come back and/ or have sent their friends to us. We are the only fly-fishing specific rental car (and gear) agency in the world. Check out our Facebook Page for more photos shared from our visiting anglers.
