    The big day for our Spring Orvis Days will be Saturday, May 9 when we'll also have lots of food and if we're lucky, a tequila tasting.

    Fly Fishing Hidden Montana w/ Tim Linehan
    When most people think about fly fishing in Montana, they picture the dry landscapes and wide open vistas of the southern part of the state. Tim Linehan knows about another Montana, a place of lush forests, rushing rivers and wild trout; a Montana that few people really know about, and even fewer visit. No crowds are the rule here, and some days you might not see another person.
