Friday Foto FF School Edition
All is well here as we move into the fall period on the Mighty Mo.
We are entrenched in the Wolf Creek Lodge with our annual Advanced Fly Fishing School that kicked off last night.
An opportunity to climb to the next level of angling under the tutelage of a few of Headhunters great guides and shop staff.
What a great way to spend the early part of October learning more about the Missouri River and catching a few fish. Last night Mark presented an overview of the Missouri River in a Powerpoint presentation while finishing a Taco Bar set up by Kelli our caterer and lunch maker supreme. She had dessert too!
This morning Braden Lewis will show us the bug and insect life not he Missouri with a presentation that he has based on his bug sampling he has done in conjunction with UMOWA and Dave Staglianno. I know I learn a bunch while taking notes on Braden’s presentation.
Then off to fish the day away focussing on short leash nymph techniques this morning and then intercepting the BWO and Pseudo action later in the day. Dry flies for all.
A fun time for sure and something you should consider attending this coming year if you want an opportunity to raise the bar.
The previous private school that we held in September was enjoyed and those anglers did learn a ton and will be back later this fall to apply their knowledge first hand here on the Missouri River.
We are enjoying a great October already as the bugs are cooperating well. Good to great hatches of the above mentioned bugs with the weather providing some much needed cloud cover. Pray for more rain and snow. I know we will have great weather for the remainder of the month.
If you are really into fishing you might consider visiting us in November. Fewer anglers, more fish.
And don’t forget that Headhunters is your Trout Spey HQ for the entire state of Montana. We just got in a few Gary Anderson Custom Rods that will tickle your fancy. Two handed rods for demo, sale, and fun. The largest selection of trout spey rods including offerings from Sage, ECHO, Anderson Custom Rods, and more. All the lines to boot including those hard to find tips and Trout Spey accessories.
Headhunters is your entertainment, information, education, and customer service fly shop on the banks of the Missouri River.
See you soon. Come on out for one of the best months of the year. Lodging and guides available throughout the entire fall season. It fishes quite well through the Thanksgiving holiday. Honest.
By the way, the fishing is coming unhinged. The big bugs should be here soon. Keep it tuned here for the up to date info that you so dearly love!
