The scenario that is playing out in Livingston is happening at fly shops around the country. Unfortunately, with additional statewide stay at home orders implemented every day, and recreational fishing closures, the lights are going to stay off for a while longer.
The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted businesses around the country. In Park County, Montana, where the fly-fishing industry is heavily reliant on anglers traveling from out of state, the impact might be greater than in other areas.
Dan Gigone, the owner of the Sweetwater Fly Shop in Livingston, has closed the doors to his store for the time being and stopped planning guided trips for the near future.
