Trout aren’t tops on Missouri fly guides’ list this week

FLY FISHING -- A friend just back from fishing for rainbow and brown trout in the Missouri near Craig, Mont., said all of his action was on nymphs. (Uh, remember we're talking about fishing.)

"One 20-inch fish, sporadic pods so lots of time without fish," he said.

But he added this notable tidbit:
"The owner of Headhunters (Fly Shop in Craig) and one of his guides were fishing on their own, not trout but buggering for walleye  at the dam, getting big ones. They said they had to fish the patterns verly slowly and they could barely feel the hits."
