Post-Runoff: Stoneflies for Starving Sumo Wrestlers

June 25, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

As runoff ends in southwest Montana, the really big fish find easy pickings — and so do fly fishers. Nick Gevock writes in the Bozeman Chronicle about the stoneflies coming off right now and the ease of matching them. Montana Troutfitters fly shop owner Josh Stanish suggests “bitch creeks, girdle bugs, yuck bugs, Kauffman’s stone fly nymphs, Jackson’s ugly bugs, 20 inchers, double bead stones, double headers and cat pukes.” (Thanks to reader John DeVault for this link.)
