Below are a number of articles that could prove valuable to a Montana visitor who needs to brush up on some tips and techniques. These articles are from my companion site, fishingtips101.com.
If you are new to fly fishing, then I recommend "Fly Fishing for Trout", a five-step series on Mastering the Basics of Fly Fishing. It culminates with the articles, "Creeks Are not Just for Kids" and "Trout Identification."
Do you need to brush up on fly patterns? I recommend two articles. The first is "Top 20 Trout Flies." The second article is for more advanced fly fishers entitled, "Montana Hatches - Fishing from the Top to the Bottom."
Although Montana is famed for its rivers, anglers in the know are plying Montana's stillwaters for trophy trout. I would begin by perusing the article, "Stillwater Fishing Test and Glossary" followed by "Mastering the Basics of Stillwater Fly Fishing."
Here are some more articles for beginning or intermediate fly anglers:
- Nymph Techniques and Strike Indicators
- Big River Nymph Set-Up
- High Sticking Techniques
- Tips for Hiring a Fishing Guide
- Spinner Fishing for Trout
Finally, Montana does have bass fishing! If you want to expand your fly fishing both at home or in Montana, read, "Fly Rods, Plastic Creatures and Bass. Fishing Tips 101 also covers the basics of conventional bass fishing. Enjoy!
