Legendary Big Horn River
Mark Melnyk is in Montana for this episode of The New Fly Fisher, as he goes fly fishing in search of Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and some surprise Carp. The show begins in Fort Smith, a small town built around the sport of fly fishing just yards from the banks of the Bighorn River. Tackle shop owner Pete Shanafelt is Mark's guide for the day, and with the use of drone footage animation and extensive knowledge, he educates Mark on the most effective way to work a fly and locate fish in the dynamic current. After some beautiful specimens, Mark heads to the unbelievably situated Bighorn Lake to try some unique dry fly fishing for Carp.
