    Fly Fishing

    Red,
    There isn't much in the way of fly fishing between here and the Bighorns or Beartooths.
    There is a couple of stocked places in ND not far off 90 but they aren't like wading a creek.
    You have to go all the way to Big Timber or Red Lodge to get into good Cut Throat, Rainbow etc...
    You could head south at Forsythe and stroke the Bighorns (Dayton has an area that hits) and then cut back to Gillette.
    I would ride with you out but I don't do rallies.

    Na, neither do I, sort of.. But I do like what I saw at West Bend but don't plan on getting professional at it...

    I actually have an inventation to fish somewhere outside of Dayton

    My first rally was last year, and I met some pretty good people that I need to stop in on. I want to make it into Montana via 212, (revised my original thoughts thanks to this thread) then head for Billings, looping back to Dayton then back south then east to Gillette. I have an invite to fish somewhere outside of Dayton. Fishing in little holes is my speciality!
    Would like to drop over the Big Horn Canyon Rec area if I can find the right road...

    God I feel like a damn tourist...I AM A TOURIST oh noooooo!

    No, no, no, you and redclfco can lead.
    Your handle will be "radar bait."

    We've done these roads as well (yearly trip from Central WA to southern MN). We aren't in a hurry, small town folk are friendly. Use caution at the fuel station, though, they have that nasty, crappy ethanol laden garbage that passes for fuel. We stick to premium between Billings, MT and Faribault, MN.
    Too damn many bikes to list

    Fair enough, I did when I was typing it.

    I may go through Iowa and come up Nebraska into Rapid City through the Southern part of the Badlands. I have gone that way before, all 2 lane. I don't rightly know yet. It depends how much time (my wife gives me.) I plan for.

    There you go, stereotyping again.
    I have been on some nice roads in Iowa.
    I really don't know yet, I have to survive the Holidays. I am not sure which bike I am bringing, or which way I am going. I may also try to go in one day, drafting behind Hodag. I dunno

    Well, JudJones convinced me.

    I will be slabbing it south to Sisseton and then following the route through southern SD to the Black Hills. I did the northern part of the state this past sumer coming back from a weekend in the Hills.

    Couple of days of 2 lane sightseeing, camping in the Bads and then to Gillette.

    Homewards is still up in the air depending on time.
