Social Distancing on the Yellowstone River, Montana Style

Fly-Fishing is one of the greatest ways to social distance. By its very nature you’re outside, away from large crowds, and at peace with the nature around you. In this crazy time of self-isolation and staying inside, a few brave anglers navigated out in Livingston, MT to remind the rest of us that fish still have to eat and some natural processes continue on no matter what’s going on. Sometimes in the midst of the chaos, we find peace in the most unique places. For most anglers that peace comes when we’re on the river.

Enjoy this short clip by Fishcamp, and try to put yourself in their shoes. For a moment, close your eyes, hear the rushing of the water against the river banks and over the rocks. Think about the flutter of a fishtail in your hands. Imagine that tight line as you hook up with yet another, giant brown on the Yellowstone River. Glancing left and right now and then to check for black bears. Reaching down into the net to pull out your trophy brown trout and pose for a picture.

So sit back, relax, and dive into the world of brown trout fly fishing in Livingston Montana.
