Capt C. has been guiding in Montana and this was the result of  his and his clients efforts. A toad for any freestone river. The fish taped out at 25 x 17.

it has been nice to be back in montana. fished all day friday on the mo and had a great day with the boys. it had been way too long. lots of nice fish to hand and not many people about. i fished the fly rod most of the day, but picked up the new KINGPIN 378 and ripped some drifts. a great little reel thats for sure. great start up and it worked nicely. we even fished dry flies…. wait what. not me… high vis midge and headhunting worked great.

we then headed over to Norris Hot Springs to soak and swill and watch macgregor burns rip guitar. closed down norris then continued the after hour show late into the night. ill be heading out tomorrow to fish another section of the missouri. should be a fun day filled with egg sacs and bobbers. once i find a new cord or an old one that somehow walked away while i was back east ill put up the pics…they are pretty classic. until then hope everyone is busy fishing. enjoy

lower madison and 30 other fishermen…

Friday, February 5th, 2010

went out to the lower yesterday assuming it would be dead as always midweek in the winter.. boy was I wrong. we rolled up to the lower only to find it packed with fly fishermen. bizarre. we chose to not stop and rolled up to beartrap instead, fishing was steady and fish were up top eating midges. not that i fished for them, but my buddy did well with small drys. we picked up most of our fish on crawfish, worms, and midges. might do a toston run to run the jet and fish the pin. hopefully some fish are around.

supporting your local fly shop…?

Friday, January 15th, 2010

went to a “real” fly shop today after breakfast to stop in and chat with the man the myth the legend jim over at GYF, or Greater Yellowstone Flyfishers. I hadn’t been in the shop since late summer after fish committed to plastic. I went in to BS and buy some tying supplies for worms. I walked in expecting to spend 10 and walked out spending 30$. oh well jim always sells me on some fly i need to tie up more of. he’s truly knows his stuff. as for me Ill be spending the weekend tying and refilling the boxes for the spring..307 outfitters loves plastic

got out for a few hours on the lower madison to bounce around the buckets. fishing was decent considering the wind. it was warm 50 degrees all day. fish were eating crawfish, worms and plastic under the indicator hard. nothing bigger than 16 brought to hand. dump run tomorrow…….
