After 3 weeks of hot sunny weather, it appears that our wet summer has caught back up to us. Every afternoon for the past week the clouds and rain and lightning and thunder have rolled in about 3pm. This has made for some awesome streamer fishing, and some interesting hopper fishing (Good some days, bad the next). It's been quite a while since I've streamer fished actually trying to catch them rather than just catch a big one, and it's been great watching fish cartwheel under the surface to crush a bugger.
Note the rain jacket in August, not right!
One of the things I looked forward to when I moved to MT was streamer fishing, and it seems when I get to go fishing I opt for the dry rod over the meat, plus I haven't been hanging out with Matney lately.

And there is a little of this around if you know where to look.
