Summer Time and Montana on the mind

are you going my way?
It has been awhile since I have written anything, and with the summer quickly transitioning into fall an update is in order....

On March 29 I married the coolest girl in all the world and this was fact was proven true when she agreed to a Twin Bridges MT honey moon.  In a rare confluence of events that culminated into a weekend that did not have a soccer tournament or football practice we packed the rig and headed out for big sky county.  Old friend and quickly ascending to "unicorn" status fishing guide Joe Willauer was kind enough to take some time away from his family to hang with us and show us the finest of trout rivers...The fishing was great...the company was even better.  We are looking forward to another trip to MT.  Also a huge  thank you to Seth McLean of 4 Rivers....your hospitality is much appreciated and we look forward to getting back to MT for another stay above the shop.

The lazy days of summer were a reality this year.  With the amazing run of warm weather and sunny days, the general west trout fishing has been good to great.  The Skokomish river is a watershed of my youth and for years while off guiding on the east side of the state I had nearly forgotten how close and productive this river can be.

The opportunity or necessity to get back to fishing/guiding close to home has taken on a new meaning.  Re-defining home water has been a great journey filled with great days of fishing and the excitement of learning the watershed.
