Montana Fly Fishing Guide - Float Trip


Raft Float Trips

Just about a week ago we had a warm weather spell in November. Rock Creek was on the rise and the green raft in the drive way was screaming at me.

It was still to early to float and fish but a nice float down the river would have been nice. Who knows I might not ever be able to float Rock Creek in November again in my life. Needless to say from the picture above, Smith River picture, I didn't pull the trigger and go.

Raft float trips don't just have to be for fishing. I think that was what stopped me. I'm so hung up on the fact that if you float down a river you have to fish. I could have took my camera. The very upper stretch of Rock Creek near Philipsburg is full of wildlife. My chances of some epic Moose photos would have been high.

We all have to remember that a guided fly fishing trip down the river is not all about the fishing. It is about the experience. A day outside in Montana is always full of great oppertunity for once in a lifetime experiences.

Craig Montana is the Fly Fishing Capital of the World. If you want a guided fishing trip I'm sure most days an available guide is a stones throw from one of the three fly shops in town. Craig Montana has more drift boats than vehicles, animals, maybe even people. Beware the Fly Fishing Mecca of Craig Montana is a Black Hole too. Get here, buy your license and take the trip man.

Don't stay too long in Craig Montana. You could end up a fishing guide, shop rat, outfitter, bartender or maybe even a fish bum. What you won't be is rich but instead highly successful in your pursuit of fly fishing.

Come to Craig Montana to Fly Fish with Montana Drifter and have a trip you won't soon forget.

More to come on this idea in the future. Craig is a special place to my little family.
