Weekend Warriors

Here is a little photo entry of the weekends turkey scouting turned trout fishing. It’s hard to stayed focus on animals without gills when there is world famous water running near by.

Progress as promised

We just revamped the photo page. Give it a look see and please let us know what you think.

On a different note… Got to watch a burly trout get frisky on some real live mayflies this afternoon. It was too mesmerizing to actually snap out of  and cast to the big guy, maybe I just didn’t want to spook him. Either way he didn’t end up testing the drag.

Things are looking up here in the Big Sky.

Gloomy Weekend

Looks more like duck season then the first day of “Spring”. Gloomy weekend, but at least the fishing should be decent.

Got out for a little evening fishing yesterday. Tried to do our part on controlling the pike invasion but got distracted by pods of little rainbows rising to midges.

First fish on the fly rod wrapped by my uncle.

Ran into a crazy old fly fisherman on the walk back to the truck who’s vocabulary was made up of mumbling and variations of non-existent curses. However, this gentlemen told us about a “Secret” back slough. He swore on his own grave that it held  “At least 6 pound largemouth”… One of the best parts about fishing in Missoula is the “Crazies“, other fishermen, you meet on the river. Regardless, 6 pound Largemouths cant be ignored and his theory must be put to test.

Hopefully some of those potential state records are hungry and looking for a fight.

Hope they are smellin' what were cookin'

With World War III on deck, Japan struggling with a nuclear disaster, oil at $101 a barrel, and HB 309 threating the great river access that Montana in known for, the only logical thing to do is to go fishing.

Enjoy those rivers while you can still get on them.
