All you need to get through your nymphing session on the Missouri is a pocketful of mayfly nymphs.
And maybe a Scud or two. A sow, a worm…or another mayfly nymph like a giant P-Tail up top!
Missouri River Mayfly Nymphs
The nymphing in Zeptember is off the charts. Bot every September is this good. Some are, and others are not. It has been a few years since we have witnessed the bite get better every day.

It is getting better daily. The weather is in the crapper. Generally makes for good waterfowling and good Missouri River fly angling. Blowing hard today with overcast skies accompanying the wind from the south, and west.
