Event: January Membership Meeting- Boots Allen presents “Twelve months of Yellowstone”


If you visit the Yellowstone region anytime during the year, you will probably have a chance to fish within a two hour drive of your location.  Twelve Months in the Greater Yellowstone examines a diverse year-round fishery, emphasizing events such as winter midge and bwo emergences on the Henry’s Fork, pre-runoff fishing on the Snake River, opening day on the Firehole and Madison rivers, Harriman State Park, and the Yellowstone River, fall brown runs above Jackson Lake, and fabulous stillwater fishing on Henry’s, Hebgen, and Lewis lakes.  If you are looking for a unique fishing experience in the Greater Yellowstone area, this informative and humorous presentation is for you.

Boots Allen is a 28 year senior guide in the Greater Yellowstone area, where he guides 140 plus days on Wyoming’s Snake River and Green River, Idaho’s South Fork of the Snake River, and the waters of Yellowstone National Park. He is a four-time high scoring guide in the annual Jackson Hole One-Fly Contest, a top scoring angler in east Idaho’s Bass on the Fly tournaments, an accomplished custom fly tier, and a writer with articles appearing in several regional and national fly fishing magazines. After completing his Ph.D in Sociology from the University of Texas in 2006, Boots shunned the world of academia and policy work so that he could focus his attention full time towards fly fishing. During the off-season, he speaks at fly fishing events across the country and hosts destination trips around the world. He is the author of Snake River Fly Fishing, Modern Fly Fishing for Trout, Snake River Flies, and Finding Trout in All Conditions.
