Fly Fishing..The Sport of World Leaders

                                                        President Obama Fly Fishing

After a couple weeks of silence, The White House has finally released photos of President Barack Obama fly fishing on the East Gallatin River (outside of Bozeman, Mont.) with longtime Montana fly fishing guide Dan Vermillion back on Aug. 14.

Obama, shown here after a bite, wasn't lucky enough to land one of those Montana trout but does have some nice photos and some even fonder memories I'm sure.

If you ever get a chance, I'd recommend fly fishing the East Gallatin River, a very accessible river that is as productive a fishery as you’ll find in Big Sky Country.

Montana, which has been getting a lot of exposure of late, also has some fine rivers out of Missoula in the Bitterroot, Blackfoot, Clark Fork and Rock Creek.
