I am overwhelmed by feelings of nostalgia and memories of family traditions. Wistful, light-hearted notions of carefree days and the sound of laughter with friends. Now while I am preparing to travel to Nashville this week for the holidays, it’s not the Yule Tide season or the thought of rocking around the Christmas tree that has my head in the clouds.
This weekend I will be at FLY SOUTH flyshop in Nashville doing a presentation on fishing Montana rivers. In preparation, I am knee-deep in fish photographs and river maps and flies…and it’s killing me. I am desperate to be in a drift boat in Montana. I wish I were in the middle of an evening caddis hatch on the Missouri with two hours of summer sunlight left and a glass of red wine and a bowl of penne waiting for me at Izaaks at about 11 pm.
Since that’s still months away and I am due to shake my tail feathers South for the winter instead of West, talking trout will have to suffice until I am catching them. Care to join me?
The guys at Fly South are the best and if you’re not on a river, I can’t think of a better place to spend a Saturday. So if you’re in the area, please do come to Fly South this weekend to say hello, score a doughnut, and see my presentation on fishing Montana rivers.

If you’re not in Nashville, don’t think you’re off the hook. I need help with my
withdrawal symptoms presentation. Send me some Big Sky fishing stories, pictures, pattern suggestions. Jump in the mix, share your trout fishing highlight reel with the rest of us. What was your best day on a Montana river? I am granting you permission to brag – not to mention an excuse to take a break from your online Christmas shopping.
