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.

Another One of Those Days

Some days we just can’t get it done. No way. No how.

And some days… We manage to find fish that are so willing to eat they make us feel like rock stars.

Last week we had a day that made us feel like we knew what we were doing.

Close to Missoula, more fish than we could count, and only 2 other boats on the river. It was a good day.

The Browns weren’t the only ones who liked the meaty offerings

I felt like a kid in a candy shop. Getting to watch fish follow the fly all the way to boat is pretty darn cool.

Just showin a little love

The coolest fish of the day. First Pikeminnow.

Respect it. Don’t neglect it.

It was a pretty great day. With the highlight easily being two streamer caught whitefish.

Friday Fish Face

It’s finally Friday. I think that’s something we can all be happy about. We haven’t been fishing near enough, so that will have to change.

These are a few glamour shots from some of the better looking subjects.

Cutt’s, Bow’s, and Browns. Love em all.

Secret Spot.

Great weather this weekend. Gonna have to find some water.

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.

All Smiles

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.
