Introducing RIO SlickCast
The minds at RIO never sleep and have recently introduced the SlickCast, a radical new coating technology that creates the slickest, most durable fly line in history. Read what makes this possible as RIO fly lines continue to command the market! Interesting video too.
Bighorn River, Montana
Anglers on the 'Horn are expecting the PMDs and caddis to start any day and a few fish are taking grasshoppers. As expected, the upper river is fishing best and nymphs have out-fished dries and streamers. Water is clear and cold coming out of the dam and air temperatures are warm. These conditions will jump start the summer hatches and by August when we arrive, we should have good activity on tricos, caddis, hoppers – and the tail end of the PMDs.
This is not the river of old, there are bigger fish these days but fewer fish. The 50 fish days with many small fish seem to be over for now and it has become a much more mature river offering quality over quantity.
We have a few rooms left in our first week, August 22-29. If you're itching to get out of town, come along with us for a great week of big sky country, quality fishing, and few people. Check out the details and contact us for further information, including Covid-19 precautions.
Beck Trips Update
The coronavirus has given us a constantly changing world. When will I return to work? Will the schools open next month? When will we be able to take trips again? For those of us in the travel business, and for most everyone else, these past few months have been a nightmare – with no guarantees on what is yet to come.
It is the unknown that often brings out the best in us and people in general usually have a pretty positive outlook, so it is encouraging to see friends and clients cautiously inquiring about our travel plans in the months ahead. I can hardly keep up with our calendar changes, but at present, this is what we are hoping for the next year, but knowing that it is now always subject to change.
