Happy 4th of July from the Flying Pig! Things are getting really busy around here, but that is a great thing. We have been fishing The Yellowstone River and in The Park. the “Big Bugs” are at Tower, so if you want to get your Salmonfly fix, head up there. There will be a lot of people getting after it on The River this weekend. That is a great thing. Whether you fish, tube, raft, paddle board, wade, snorkel, or walk across the water- please be aware of everyone else out there. Keep your distance and share your beer. Smiles go a long way on busy days. There is plenty of water for all of us, and we are all just having a good time. Keep your head up, beer cold, and sunscreen on! AND,,, if you have any questions about what patterns to fish on America’s birthday, stop in the fly shop. I found a great 4th of July pattern that the fish won’t be able to refuse.
If the regular flies are not getting it done, tie on the Freedom Slider!
