Tim Flagler has been fly fishing and tying for more than 30 years. He founded Tightline Productions in 1998, a video production company that specializes in promotional and instructional video. He's known worldwide for his tying videos. Tim's also a presenter, instructor and guide.
He will talk about the Kootenai and Yaak rivers:
The Kootenai and Yaak rivers of northwestern Montana don’t get the recognition that others in the state like the Madison and the Missouri do. This is actually a good thing. Imagine five days of fishing from a drift boat without seeing another one on the river or wading miles and miles of a crystal clear alpine stream and never seeing a soul. That’s what fishing is like on the Kootenai River and the Yaak drainage with the Linehan Outfitting Company. Presentation is entirely video-based.
The Griffith's Gnat imitates a lot of different insects. Created by George Griffith, one of the founders of Trout Unlimited, it's a buggy dry fly and can be fished a number of different ways. It looks like a tiny woolly bugger with no tail and has the same effect on fish.
Tie 10 of your own best version of the Griffith’s Gnat and bring them to the September Chapter meeting!

Rinehart Brook (Morris) - Brook Trout Restoration Project A Brook Trout restoration project was initiated on Rinehart Brook, a tributary to the Black River within Hacklebarney State Park in 2017. Prior to the project, non-native Brown Trout had become the dominant trout species, with the native Brook Trout residing in small numbers. The objectives of this study were: to determine if multiple depletion electrofishing could be an efficient manner to remove Brown Trout, to monitor potential rebound effects of the Brook and Brown Trout populations, to determine if natural boulder waterfalls prevent Brown Trout from recolonization, and ultimately restore Brook Trout.
