Yes, it was great! There are 6 fly shops in West. Blue Ribbon, Maddison River, Bud Lilly, the little tiny log shop a block South of the main street, Arricks, and Jacklins. Seven if you count the Eagle Store............
Jacklin's used to be Pat Barn's shop. Bob is quite a character!! He holds free casting lessons each Sunday evening in the West City park. His shop has a trove of his collection of mounted flies by famous tiers. Even has some Pott flies!
Next time, be sure to stop in and see his flies. And, let me know you are out there. Maybe we can fish one day together.
Where did you fish the Madison?
The Galatin, where I fish it, can be tricky. You pretty much need both a Montana license and a Park license as the stream meanders between the two in places.
