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.

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.



Oh The Weather Outside is…Winter.

Today was the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. It’s brighter from here on out. Here in Montana we had about 8 hours of light, just enough to work right through it and not see the sun. I can’t imagine how they do it up in AK. That must be a terrible case of the “Shack Nasties”.

It was fitting to wake up to snow. We haven’t had much down in the valley but the ski hills are starting to look pretty fluffy.

Happy winter everyone. Make sure you buy yourself a fly rod for Christmas. It is good for the soul.
