Al Caucci has spent at least a month a year in Montana, as well as other Rocky
Mountain states, for the past 35 years.That’s 35 consecutive years of exploring,
researching, fishing and hosting trips on all the famous Montanarivers.Through his travels and business, he obtained
intimate knowledge of all the famous rivers; Henry’s Fork, Madison, Firehole,
Yellowstone, Gardner, Boulder, Gallitan, Big Horn, Green, South Fork of the
Snake, Teton, Big Hole, Beaverhead, Ruby, Jefferson, Clark Fork, Bitterroot,
Rock Creek, Locksa, Black Foot, Dearborn, Smith, the big Missouri and many
smaller streams and spring creeks too numerous to name!
Al has taught schools and hosted trips on most of these
rivers since 1985, and in the seventies he explored and researched the hatches,
trout and habitats of these famous streams.During the past 10 years or so, Al has decided to fish and host trips on
only the “best of the best”!His
evaluation is simple; “to select only those rivers that produce big wild trout
that sip bugs on the prolific hatches.He feels that “sight fishing” and hooking big trout (or lots of good
size trout) on dry
flies with a fine tippet is the “ultimate in trout fishing”.
To accomplish this, he has selected the best dry fly rivers
in the world for the Al Caucci Flyfishing Trips; the best rivers with the
biggest wild trout populations, during the peak time of the year, and the very
that continue to fish you during the hours of peak insect activity and rising
trout.This is no easy task as
over 95% of the guides in Montana today will pick you up at 8:00 or 9:00 AM and
drop you off at 5:00 or 6:00 PM (before the peak action even starts).Al is willing to compensate his guides for
this and selects them for their enthusiasm and ability!It does not make sense to leave a river at – when usually the best
action of the day is from !Al has been dealing with
most of the outfitters and guides for decades and many are friends.
trout fishing day generally starts at 9:00 AM and end at with a break during the dead part of
the afternoon.The best rivers, best
hatches, best guides – all focused on the proper
window of opportunity – that’s what Al Caucci Flyfishing trips are all about!
