I had a great time this past week at the International Federation of Fly Fishers annual fly fishing fair in Livingston, Montana, and was lucky to get out for a few days on the water before the fair started. I was joined one day by my friend, Gary Turri, of California for a day on Nelson’s Spring Creek. Gary is a fantastic angler and a Certified Fly Casting Instructor as well. I put on one of my bamboo fly rods in Gary’s hands to fish for the day…we both fished 7′ 6″ 5 wt FreeStone Series bamboo rods. We had lots of fun casting tiny flies for very educated browns, rainbows, and cutthroats, and we each netted a few fish. Here are a few pictures of our day.
