After meeting a fellow named "Kristo" and spending late winter and spring fly fishing in small, desert, creeks with wary trout and deciding our fishing styles were compatible I joined him on his Big Sky, dream hatch, adventure. We were chasing the Salmon fly and Green Drake hatch and roaming the two sides of the continental divide, fly fishing in some of Montana's fabled waters through fire and storms.
A pleasant few hours small stream dry fly fishing on one of the many tributaries the Wye in Wales.
The rod used was a Black Mountain Midge 6ft 6in 5-6wt, which is an unusually taper to say the least,
it does have its charm. This is a new taper for me and it was the rods first outing.
It is a traditional Welsh taper which seem to do well on the river.
