Break in the Action

Today is the first day in a while where I’ve had a chance to breathe and relax a little, so I’ll put a few photos from the latest adventures up. Lately I’ve been all over western Montana chasing bent rods and good times, and for the most part we’ve enjoyed awesome fishing so far this summer. Last week we had great mayfly weather…clouds, rain and a just a little sun. Green drakes were awesome and the fish were on in the clouds.

I also ran up to the Blackfoot with a couple clients, although the dry fly fishing up there in the bright sun was not too spectacular, Brandon was able to hook and skillfully land this big Bull Trout…on 4x tippet. Pretty good for his third day ever fly fishing.

I did have a day off this week that I took advantage of to do a little fun fishing. We fished The lower Clark Fork a ways from town had had a fun day picking off some rising fish on pmd’s. Those fish down there fight so hard it’s ridiculous.

That’s all I got for now, stay tuned for more after fourth of July week.

  1. Hi there,
    Very nice fish…I will have the opportunity to fish the Gallatin River in a couple weeks for just a day. I have no experience on this river and was wondering if you could give any advice on where to go for best wading access for a fly fisherman. I’m assuming that dead-drift nymphing is the most productive method here, until the mayflies come off…any information you’d be willing to share is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
