Flyfisher's Guide to Montana...Upgrade

Talked to Chuck Johnson, Wilderness Adventures Press, yesterday about plans to reprint Flyfisher's Guide to Montana (2nd Edition, 2nd, maybe 3rd printing, I forget) this fall. One big change will be inserting color plates and recipes for specialty flies appropriate to Montana waters. A change I had been hoping for ever since we first talked about doing the book. I don't know about you but black and white renditions of colorful trout flies just do not cut it...Anyway I could not be happier to participate and am open to any and all suggestions...bear in mind we won't be including old standbys such as Elk Hair Caddis, Adams and so forth...Flies we will consider include those guarded secret ties you been spanking 'em even your best buddy is clueless. We will of course give credit where credit is due, contact info should you tie commercially and so on...Let me know ASAP as always your intrepid reporter is on sort of a short leash...

Fished upper, upper Big Hole yesterday amid swarms, I mean SWARMS, tricos...rise was already going strong when we hit river around 9 and fish were still madly slurping when we quit for lunch around one...too skinny to float best plan getting wet...sort of refreshing considering the 90 degree heat of late...
