For many fisherman in western Montana, life revolves around fly fishing. And contrary to want some people think, it is NOT just a "fair weather sport." Fly fishing is happening year round on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot and Clark Fork rivers. The only drawback is what you fish with. Midges are one of the most difficult flies to put on your line, especially when you cant feel your fingers.

If you plan to hit the water this weekend. Take some advice from our favorite fishing guide, Hank Patterson.
