We like to consider Montana, and especially the Bozeman/Livingston area, "mecca", but is it? Or are we over-zealously proud of our fishing? Are they guys at Field & Stream a bunch of crack pots, or are we fooling ourselves?
Here's what I can tell ya - we've got thousands of miles of trout-filled, pristine water, a generous stream-access law, hatches that, as far as I know, rival anywhere in the world, and big, wild trout.
What do you think? Make a case. (I certainly won't be offended if you argue against Montana.)
