Trout Mecca in Missoula Montana

Produced and narrated by Joseph Daniel, filmed and edited by Joseph Daniel and Michael Grasseschi, 2011 – At Wild on the Fly we like to say that the rivers of the world begin in Missoula, Montana. Our Outdoor Channel TV series certainly was born there, as this pilot episode illustrates, aptly beginning where A River Runs Through It.

From fishing the Blackfoot in the snow with the crazy guides from the legendary Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop, to stalking slough fish on the Bitterroot, to celebrating the astonishing restoration of the Clark Fork, this is Montana at its best. We’re even down for some restaurant-hopping in Missoula, fish-finding via horseback, and ‘smores at the campfire. There's a reason this is Trout Mecca!
