A look inside the "Trout Life" under the Big Sky

We’re Back

To paraphrase the Moose Jockey’s from up North who run LoFiFly… Every now and then your blog and blogging efforts go to shit. Sometimes it’s a little drawn out.

Sorry we’re not sorry. We were busy. Hunting season went from Sept 1st till Jan 15th. That’s a long time and it’s also a lot of work. But we now have an apartment with skulls on the wall and meat in the freezer. So it was worth it.

But we are back. Because we need it…And apparently enough of you want it to bug us about it non-stop… So here it is.

We will have posts about the fall and winter fishing and all of our clusters of hunting outings.

Just give us time. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

This is a fish someone caught.

That’s right LoFi. We called you out. Only because we love you.

We missed you guys.

Fish Today. Hunt Tomorrow.

It looks like streamer weather out there. Clouds, rain, not too much wind. Perfect. The browns have been mean lately and will to eat some junky looking streamers.

Tomorrow Stan and I are heading East for a weekend deer hunting trip. We are hoping to find some bucks Stan saw earlier this year. They have been in the back of his mind the whole time and have kept him from shooting anything else. I know what that means and I am excited about it.

Spring Fling

While most of Missoula is out of town for spring break Stan and I have been sneaking off to try and find a few fish. The snow steered us towards tying flies and re-watching Eastern Rises today, but yesterday we managed to stick a few nice fish.

Because of the bump the rivers have gotten this week we had to put in some miles to find a few clear backwaters. It was worth it.

Catch you later

Nice fish. Better net.

Thanks for your time.

Two more days then its back to real life. It always seems that spring break goes by too fast. But I guess that just means that summer is getting closer.

Yummm.

It’s hard to get good photos of a fish by yourself. Another good reason to always take someone with you.

Stan and I are off to chase fish around today. Anthony is tearing it up over there in NoDak. Big pike and some dry fly action is the report.

Monday Morning Macro

Skwala Edition.

We found these guys this weekend. And more importantly, fish that were looking up to eat them. It was good to start the weekend off right with a fish on top right of the boat launch.

 

Spring has Sprung.

We are getting closer and closer to amazing things on the rivers. More photos and writing to follow as usual.
