Recommended flies for Montana
 
Folks:

Just got an invite to give a talk at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, MT next July. I'd welcome recommended flies for me to tie.

Thanks!

Hoppers would be a big one, throw some of the standard nymphs in, and some general attractor dries. For area specific patterns you'll have to call some fly shops or do some more research.

Early or late July?

Depending on the weather, and the river, that can be great dry fly fishing..

PMDs, emergers and the related nymphs

After that.. normal nymphs

Later July.. Hoppers, Chernobyls, etc

I lived in Hamilton for 5 yrs but didn't take up fly fishing until after I had left Montana. What a waste...
