Had a client mention to me a few weeks ago just this…
Of all the seasons, I think fall smells the best.
I tend to agree. The colors, the fellowship, the trout. Valhalla is where we are.
Lots of fun folks are around too. Non-local locals are here, Izaak’s and Joe’s are busy nightly with tales of fish fought, liquor shots tossed back, and infectious smiles & laughter.
Why wouldn’t you be here?
Here is what is coming this weekend…looks like the weather we love!
- CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING THAT THERE WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS WITH WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION LATE THIS WEEKEND THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. SNOW IS LIKELY IN THE MOUNTAINS AND IT APPEARS THAT RAIN WILL CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW EVEN AT LOWER ELEVATIONS BY SUNDAY EVENING.
Flows at 3000 and holding with the water temps also holding at 51F. This is the way we like it. Mother Mo is granting us a hall pass and we appreciate it greatly.
The streamer bite has been off this fall but it is not without trying. The RIO Line Company is here for their annual trek with Headhunters Fly Shop hosting fly shop owners, buyers, and managers from around great fishy America. Tons of fun as this gang can not only fish but spin a ton of bullshit too. Say hello if you see them on the river.
Remember: We have a ton of SAGE Demo Rods in stock for all to try. Soon, actually several in stock now, we will have a dozen or so 2 Handed Rods for your casting pleasure too. If you want to sign up for the first of many Saturday Spey Clinics @ Headhunters, get in touch with us as the spots fill quickly. More later on this topic.
All the demo lines you want as well. We got them all spooked up on reels so you can find your fly line Utopia. Try out 3 and really get the feel for your rod!
Check out this video from RIO Products fro more info about fly lines. Come see us fro testing any fly line…and as you remember, any fly line purchase at Headhunters Fly Shop is guaranteed. You don’t like it? Bring it back and we will get you the right line!
While many fly shops are out of stock this time of year, Headhunters is fully stocked for all your Missouri River trout line needs. We too are a 12 month fly shop catering to the Missouri River Angler!
Come on out and enjoy this fell good and smell good time on the Missouri River. We are really excited for November as well with water temperatures holding at the fishy level. Lodging discounts go into effect on November 1st for your pocketbook pleasure. Izaak’s Restaurant will be open later this year until Christmas so you can have a nice dinner after your day! Thanks Izaak’s. Missouri River Inn is also open this year and The Frenchman in Wolf Creek is a 12 month gig.
Call us for an up to the minute fishing report or weather conditions. Need guides or lodging? We got that too.
Enjoy the smells of fall and see you on any number of random dry fly flats!
