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.
