Book: Montana on the Fly

From the Bighorn River in the southeast to the Flathead River in the northwest, Montana on the Fly: An Angler’s Guide (Countryman Press; $20) will guide you down 14 of Montana’s most renowned trout waters. Patrick “Paddy” Straub uses his local know-how to fill his book with everything from which flies to throw on each river and when, to where to stay, eat, and hang after a long day of slugging upstream—making a complete guide for planning your next long weekend anywhere in Montana.

If his charts and directions aren’t enough for you, Straub even lists local fly shops, outfitters, and guides to help steer you toward the fish. Including a fisherman’s guide to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, Montana on the Fly: An Angler’s Guide, is a must-have for any Montana angler’s library.
