Lets see those fly boxes! I am just learning to fly fish and i have been very stumped as to which flies to buy. I figured this may help me! I am 16 and will be fly fishing in north western montana, on the flathead river mostly! Thanks!

Here you go, hope it helps.

These first rows of flies are now in my fly box:

Unfortunately there is not enough time nor room for me to label everything. These flies should be perfect for where you're located. I live in southeast Idaho and have used all of these flies all over Montana and will attest to their effectiveness.

Good luck in your search...

Kelly.

And if you work hard all your life and spend all your money on fly fishing stuff, when you get to be my age, you'll laugh at yourself for being fly box poor!

Kelly; those big puffballs on the right hand side of the third box down - are those "parasol" emergers - the kind that drift an inch or so below that indicator?
