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.

Montana Brown Trout

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.



Monday Macro

Macro-ish. Maybe… We can call it abstract. We make the rules.

Hope you had a great weekend. FCFT did. Lots and lots of fish for the ones who went to the Mo. (Anthony caught the fish of the year) And a maiden voyage on the new-to-me raft for the ones in Missoula. Good weekend for sure.



Sunshine, New Waders, and Clifford the Big Red Dog?

The sun was shining and I had new pair of waders to test out, we had to go fishing. We have a big trip to the Missouri planned for tomorrow so Stan and I decided to keep it low key and see what we could nymph up in town. Here are some shots of us keeping it “urban”.


And Snow It Begins…

Lots of snow in the Missoula area this past week. The public schools even had a snow day or two. Pretty rare. Naturally with upwards of 50+ inches of powder on the local ski hills we had to check that out. So not much fishing but some skiing.

Waist Deep


Look what we found at Lost Trail.

More snow in the forecasts. In fact it is snowing right now.

School starts this week, so naturally morale is low.

Happy Monday.
