Western Fly Hatches

"Western Fly Hatches" posted by YellowStoneFly aka Idaho Angler from Idaho Fly Fishers blogspot. This is an easy chart for those first time western fly fishers or the old timers who have forgotten which flies to bring. If the link you choose does not go directly to your fly of interest, simply copy fly's name, click on the fly desired, then paste into the search box and order. The information provided should make your next fly fishing trip a little easier. Now go fly fish Idaho. Take a look while you are in our blog at our most popular link and the little known "Bull River Montana Fishing". This river is a real gem and located only 10 miles from the Idaho state line. If you need a guide, I can hook you up with a really good one from Libby, MT. Simply email me at IdahoAngler@live.com.
