COVID-19 STATUS REPORT:  Due to a variety of COVID-19 related issues, it is taking us 8 to 10 business days to process and ship orders.  We apologize for this inconvenience and are doing everything possible to get back to our usual 3-day processing. Unfortunately, we do not anticipate that this will happen soon. More information is provided below - just scroll down to the bottom.

We want you to be able to tye flies while you are social distancing, so we really appreciate your patience and understanding. 

MANY THANKS to all of you, who have been so flexible and understanding.  We really do have the best customers in the world! 


Owners, Tony and Kathi Tomsu, welcome you to our new and improved website as River Road Creations celebrates its 20th year in business. 

Proudly made in Montana, USA, River Road Creations produces the finest and widest array of wing and foam body cutters available on the market today.  From Day One our goals have been to:

  • Manufacture wing and foam body cutters for beginner to expert tyers - to make tying easier and more consistent
  • Provide unsurpassed customer service
  • Produce quality products at a reasonable price

In addition, we are extremely excited to have teamed up with some of the country's most influential fly designers, including Joe Blados, Kent Edmonds, Gary Krebs, Ken Morrish, Doug Swisher and Brent Taylor.

Whether your tying interests lean towards flies for cold water, warm water or saltwater fisheries, we have a cutter, tying material or jig for you!  The speed and consistency you gain by using River Road Creations' innovative products will give you plenty of extra tying time for you to explore new and innovative possibilities for your own fly designs!


August 14, 2020 Update: Order Processing Related to Pandemic

Thank you for the patience and understanding you have shown businesses, including ours, as we all respond to changing requirements for ensuring customer and employee health and safety.  We appreciate your flexibility!  Thank you.

What has changed:

Order Processing: We apologize that your orders take more time to process than you previously experienced and expect.  We have added staff, extended manufacturing hours and streamlined processes, but still need extra time to process orders.  As of August 14th, we had to furlough two more employees due to COVID-19 exposures. Order processing time is currently 8-10 business days - definitely not what you deserve from us.  We apologize and are doing everything we can to get back on track.  You have been terrifically understanding and we appreciate that. As soon as we get over the backlog created by the shutdown, new procedures, and quarantined employees, we will let you know!

Email responses: With this newest COVID-19 challenge, I (Kathi) have prioritized order processing before email responses.  I apologize for being unable to respond to your emails in a timely manner.  I will respond as quickly as I can. 

Custom Cutter Requests: The customer cutter process ordinarily takes 3 to 6 weeks to provide you with the exact item you want.  Right now, we are unable to process most custom cutter requests.  We love making your custom cutters, so feel free to send your email drawings or queries and we will put them into the queue.  Just be aware that the timeframe may be extended. 

What has NOT changed: Our #1 Priority is your satisfaction. We will honor every special request related to your orders to the best of our ability. 

Call 406-777-1046 with urgent needs, gift-giving deadlines, or anything else that will help us process your order to meet your expectations. (Please don't send emails for urgent needs.  We may not be able to repond in a timely manner.)

Thank you to the many customers who have worked with us and who will work with us to meet today's challenges.
