We got up yesterday, packed the last few items and now we’re on the road to Montana.
I’m a “just in time” fly tyer on occasion, and yesterday was no exception. I took the wheel for the first three hours or driving and got into the passenger seat. What to do? You guessed it…tie a few flies.
First stop will be the Madison River and have heard I need a few Glossosoma Caddis Larva, so that’s what I was tying. I tied 1/2 dozen flies on I-84. Here is one of them…pretty good for tying on the road.
Those were size 16. I’ll tie a few more size 18 between Spokane and Missoula today.
Here is the video tying the fly if you want to watch it. I set the camera on the console.

Loved the video of you tying while traveling via I-84. The landscape out the window looks like the Mountain Home area of Idaho.
We’re leaving from Montana on Friday and bringing the drift boat so we can float the Yellowstone over the weekend before the show starts. We’ll see you there. We’re camping at Osen’s Rv Park directly behind the IFFF Office. Take care & …
