More and more fly fishers want to fish on their own, away from big crowds on big-name rivers. In this book, long-time professional fishing guide Trapper Badovinac uses on-point stories and beautiful color photos to carefully guide the reader into this world of fly-fishing solitude. He shares his proven methods for using modern resources to find and research "unknown" small streams, and he describes how to fish them for maximum fun and success, including surprising tips on rods and reels, new casting techniques, and the best fly patterns. If you are looking to discover your own "secret spots," add Fly Fishing the Solitude–Montana to your personal library.

After writing his first book, Fly Fishing Montana's Missouri River, fly-fishing guide Trapper Badovinac realized that while he enjoyed catching large trout on big rivers, he was often beckoned to the solitude of wild mountain streams where he could escape the buzz of cars, people, and the sometimes carnival atmosphere of it all. So Trapper went back to his roots, took all the questions he'd been asked about small streams, gathered all the stories, memories, and experiences of a lifetime, and wrote this book. To be sure, this is a fly-fishing book, but venturing off the beaten path requires more than just a rudimentary knowledge of fishing. Trapper tells you how to find and evaluate new waters from the comfort of your home or office. He explains the importance of water temperatures, insect activity, holding water, and wading stealth. He recommends specific rods, reels, fly lines, and fly patterns. He shares his personal formula for tying a small-stream leader, provides on-stream strategies to deal with fly refusals and presentation problems, teaches "dabbing" and "high stick" casting techniques, and discusses route finding, off-trail hazards, and safety. As a bonus, Fly Fishing the Solitude–Montana contains detailed information on four great Montana streams that Trapper found, evaluated, and fished using the methods in this book. On every page the photography will take your breath away, the stories will make you laugh, and the easy-to-understand text will give you insight into finding your own fly-fishing solitude.

Hook onto a tale or two, with his welcoming sense of humor and an ever-present love of being on the water. Trapper writes that fly fishing is "about leaving your troubles behind and enjoying the sport... Some guys are better at nymphing than others. Some choose to only cast to rising fish. Others want to improve a technique, and almost all are open to learning something new. It's rare that it's only about catching fish." The joy is in the experience: "I've yet to own a boat with a motor because the serenity of whispering water moving under me is so compelling. Combining fly fishing and floating seems like such a perfect marriage."

Come on along–for the pleasure of it!
