> Has anyyone ever been to Montana to fish? I am going the end of September to the Big Horn. I don;'t know about teh weather that time of year, or anything for that matter. I am new to flyfishing, so this ought to be a babtism to beat all. Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to Montana next week to see my son who works in Glacier National Park, so I'll give you a full report. I fished in Yellowstone several years ago and it was unbelieveable! You can actually cast a line out there, instead of the poke, dab and roll cast that is necessary in the south east.
I would recommend stopping by a fly shop. Buy a license, some stuff and ask for advise. I've dealt with "Don Bailey's" in Livingston and have always been treated great. If you can afford it, you might want to get a guide for a day. A good guide will show you all that you need to have a wonderful experience.
If your real lucky, you might be able to achieve the "Rocky Mountain Grand Slam". (4 species of trout..brook, cut, brown & rainbow)
