So it’s winter and we are busy blogging, tying flies, skiing, and dreaming about the best hatches of next fishing season. We’ve listed a few of the Montana Fly Fishing Guides staff’s favorites. Comment on your favorites.
Eric Adams’s 3 Fav’s:
Spring Baetis – Ski in the morning, fish dry flies in the afternoon. Oh yeah no crowds.
Mother’s Day Caddis – Flat out the largest hatch on the Yellowstone River you will EVER see.
Giant Western Golden Stone – Yeah the one in late summer. Big fish on dries.
