In this "stretch" of river, there are many microhabitats and distribution of insect life throughout the seasons and often during the same time and same section of the river.

Craig Mathews not only lives and breathes on the Madison River, he lives there year round. When investors sought out this prime real estate for development, he ignited the public and various conservation groups to purchase the land to keep access available for all generations of fly fishers. Today his efforts allow not just local fly fishers to fish the Madison but fly fishers from all over the globe to challenge themselves to truly experience the greatest of Montana fly fishing. His enthusiasm is passed on to you in this DVD.
