Montana Fly Fishing Report

January 28, 2011: Good.
February 19, 2011: Still good.



Simple flies in fishy holes leads to dunked indicators and fish to hand. Lots. It's relatively easy right now - that is why many folks around here prefer winter fishing. Yes, prefer. I'm not quite there yet, but I understand.
Take your Hare's Ears, Copper Johns Girdle Bugs, Serendipities and Woolly Buggers to any moving water that's legally open, tie them on, clip on a good amount of weight, set your indicator, find a deep, fishy hole, and pull 'em in.

Nice to have solid winter fishing. Interesting blog and I love the shot of that carp down below. That looks to be an old fish and, although not exactly a mirror, not exactly a common either. Cool fish.

Speaking of legal water...

This weekend I sought out the new fishing regs, I figured a brush up was overdue. Point is, I saw your sculpin photo on the back cover, very cool!

Ha - a brush-up is probably a good idea for all of us. Thanks!
