The Bitterroot River

ESPN: FLY FISHING AMERICA

Fishing the Bitterroot
In 2006 a group of us made an excursion down western Montana's Bitterroot River for ESPN's Fly Fishing America show. The production crew did a two-part cable television series, "Fire & Water," which first aired in 2006 and has been subsequently repeated.
