S4:E28 One Fine Day on the East Gallatin River

The East Gallatin River would look like a piece of ribbon candy, if you viewed it from a drone. It’s a slow moving creek that for the most part runs through private property north of Bozeman, Montana. One fall day, Steve found himself in the middle of a BWO hatch. In this episode, Dave interviews Steve about one fine day of catching rolling rainbows rising to blue-winged olives on a rainy and occasionally snowy Montana September day.


GREAT STUFF FROM OUR LISTENERS. At the end of each episode, we often include a feature called “Great Stuff from Our Listeners.” It’s the last segment of each episode, where Steve reads one of the comments from our listeners or readers. We enjoy hearing from you, and appreciate your advice, wisdom, and fly fishing experiences.

Please tell us about one fine day you’ve had on the river. What made it special?

The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists – The Perfect Stocking Stuffer for Christmas

We’ve published a book for regular-Joe-and-Jane fly fishers called The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists: Life is short. Catch more fish.

To switch metaphors, perhaps it’s more like a handful of potato chips. It’s an entire book of lists. The goal is to help you find practical help quickly and in an easily digestible format!

  1. Great topic on the BWO fishing.
    A good topic for future Pod Casts?
    1. Introducing a new person to fly fishing.
    Mentoring some new folks into the past time. I was able to do that last early summer with two friend who recently moved to the Fennimore, Wi. area. Tom & his wife Jane and I had a good time on the Blue while they got indoctrinated. Tom was lucky enough to catch a 17″ brown within a half hour. It took a couple hours of talking afterwards that you don’t catch a fish like that every time out. But I got two greats folks into the sport.

    1. Tom, great to hear from you.

      There is not a lot of options in Preston. We’ve researched places to stay on AirBnb, and there are several, one for $50 a night. But most often we stick with CountryTrails Inn – http://www.countrytrailsinn.com/. Nothing fancy, for sure, but when you split the cost (which we always do), it’s pretty cheap.
