Bug spray. You need lots of bug spray.

We arrived in Craig, Montana, and after unpacking and grabbing a quick bite to eat we set off over the
Governor Forrest H. Anderson bridge to try our luck at some evening dry fly fishing with Tom and Steve. Tons of caddis were fluttering through the sky but we later found out that it was not only caddis that was out and about in the evening sky.

We found several pods of trout that were taking insects off the top so we set ourselves up along the bank to deliver size 16 flies into the feeding lanes. However we soon found out the minute we s070109montana3topped to begin casting tons of mosquitos descended on us and began to draw blood. It got so bad that after 30 minutes we gave up and went back to our rooms to prepare for the next day when we're scheduled to float down the Missouri River with the guys from Big Sky Anglers.

EQUIPMENT: We used 5 and 6-weight rods rigged with nymphs or dry flies.
