  "Montana is Fly Fishing and Fly Fishing is Montana" that's what Jim Klug told me during a brief interview in Ennis the other day. I met Jim at the Ennis "Tie One On" Fly Fishing Festival.  Jim is a fantastic guy, easy going and amiable.  During our short interview, he had great things to say regarding fly fishing in Montana and for that matter around the world. And it's no wonder considering what Jim does for a living, take a look at his Bio:    Jim is the Founder and Director of Operations for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures, L.L.C., Jim has worked in the fly fishing industry as a guide, sales rep, travel coordinator, and as past National Sales Manager for Scientific Anglers. He has guided extensively in Montana, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon, and has fished throughout the world in more than 25 countries. With a particular love of saltwater flats fishing, Jim spends a lot of time in the Caribbean, Central and South America, working with Yellow Dog’s network of lodges and guides. Jim lives in Bozeman, Montana with his wife Hilary, daughter Carson, and son Finn. Jim is currently the Chairman of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA), and sits on the board of directors of Belize's Turneffe Atoll Trust and Montana's Big Sky Youth Empowerment Project. Aside from his work with Yellow Dog, Jim is the executive producer and writer for Confluence Films, a small film company that created the films DRIFT (2008) and RISE (2009). Confluence is currently at work on a new film, scheduled for release in fall 2011.    After getting home to BC the other day I looked at the interview that I shot with Jim and immediately contacted him about further participation in the film. I'm happy to say that Jim Klug and Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures have agreed to take part in the film. Next summer while in Bozeman,  I'll visit the Yellow Dog offices and spend a day on stream with Jim.  Thanks to Jim for taking the time at the festival to speak with me and I'm really looking forward to shooting with him next summer.    More Later    T>
