FISHING THE HORN - Readers cast (Neil Travis) - May 21, 2012
FISHING THE HORN
Like a black snake, two lanes of asphalt snakes away in a generally southwesterly direction from the town of Hardin, Montana. The country rolls way like a green carpet toward the Big Horn River and the town of Fort Smith. It's roughly 40 miles from Hardin to Fort Smith, and the road takes you through miles of farm land where cock pheasants can be seen walking around in the alfalfa and sugar beet fields.
I'm still scratching my head ...
... over where the comment about "snobby dry fly fisherman" came from ??????????????????????????????

As far as the passage that DUB quoted goes, man, I'm glad that there are people out there doing that so they aren't cluttering up the places I like to fish. The more the better as far as I am concerned.
It is hard for me to relate to folks who pay guides big bucks to rig up their fly angling gear and put them on pods of hungry fish so they can count catches and be merry. :roll: On the other hand, I know a lot of guides and I'm happy for them that there are lots of folks contributing to their economic health !! If not boring them to death with such antics.
