    Head Hunter's Secret

    TO PARK OR NOT TO PARK
    You Really Need Both
    the fish do park variously
    TRUE STORY !
    -------
    .. Although the Barns Holes are justly famous and easily accessible to park and catch the submarines that run up from Hebgen Reservoir, there's a short walk to glory nearby. Of course you must leave sight of your car and fish for real.
    THE STREAMER NYMPH
    .. Just pull in any parking spot near Baker's Hole on the Madison River. Walk a little way to the sinuous meanders that straddle the park line and catch the monsters that rest in the dark holes and under the shady banks.
    .. You'll need a Montana Fishing License and a Yellowstone National Park Fishing Permit. Watch the sun because the migrants move from shade to shade in this wiggly stretch of water.
    .. The holes are deep, the fish are fresh, the elbows disappear with distance to the car. These fish are far less wary than those fish further up the stream.
    .. Enjoy the day - rain is best.
