The Montana Cup 2014
Spent the last few days guiding the boys from Carolina for their annual Montana Cup flyfishing trip and had a blast.
Checkin' out the MO
Ever since arriving in Montana, people have boasted numbers and stories about the Missouri River. 6,000 trout inhabit each mile of select river stretches with some ridiculous proportion of those being greater than 16 inches
Hyalite: A Good Option For Runoff
The rivers are high and muddy right now, and although anglers are getting into fish on them a lot of people don’t want to deal with high, muddy flows. Fortunately there are other options in the local area. One place a lot of people seem to be heading is Hyalite Reservoir. It is close to town, full of fish, and offers anglers a great chance to catch some decent trout. Every day here in the shop we’ve had folks asking about it and heading up that way.
The Small Stuff
High water in the big rivers forces anglers to be resourceful. When our options are limited, you have to be willing to do a little digging to find fishable water. Even though rivers like the Madison are fishing well right now, there are still lots of folks looking for something more.
Field Trip to the Simms Factory
The Bozeman Angler crew took a field trip out to four corners this morning to check out the Simms Factory and learn about how their amazing waders are created, seam by seam. Our tour began in the repair department, where the friendly, avid fly-fishing staff, explained the process of checking your waders for pinholes by turning them inside out and spraying them with alcohol and then treating them with a thin layer of aquaseal. Simms offers a warrenty that includes free repairs on your waders for one year.
