Big Hole River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The reach cast will pay dividends meaning accomplishing your mend in the air as opposed to on the water when crossing the current. Imagine painting a canvas starting at the upper right hand corner and brushing your stroke down to the bottom left corner with one sweep. This is a smooth one step cast rather than a forward stroke and then a rod tip movement upstream which defeats your purpose. Start your fly at the target then smoothly bring the tip of the rod upstream in one movement.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather forecast calls for highs in the 60's with possible rain showers. Use caution and think safety in the higher river flows.
