Montana fly fishing guide said...

Interesting that Montana is changing its course on fishing competitions. We participated in a Montana fly fishing fund raiser at the museum of the rockies and the competitive fishing portion was not allowed. Still a lot of fun but became a photo contest. I think for fund raisers like the Jackson One Fly it should be allowed.

Even without the competitive angle it is a good for promoting the sport.
