Mellow Yellow

Sorry I haven’t had a chance to finish the updates on our recent Montana trip. My computer staged a non-violent sit-in to protest overuse, but then proceeded to experience full on cardiac arrest last week. It was finally carried away on a stretcher yesterday and after a few rounds with the paddles, it is now [...]

Wynona’s Big Brown Beaverhead

Okay, so the only brown we caught on the Beaverhead wasn’t big at all, it was a teeny little guy, but we did have two days of primus prime primo dry fly fishing on the Beaverhead catching several nice rainbows. I caught this fish on a trico right out of the gate.   The Professor [...]

Pink Ribbon

I wish I could take credit for coordinating my pink shirt with breast cancer awareness month. But I did catch this fiesty Beaverhead rainbow yesterday with an incrdible ribbon of pink on it. Gorgeous fish, great float. Think Pink. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]

Home Sweet Home Waters

I finished the Texas Water Safari on Tuesday July 13th. By the following Sunday, hands still swollen, I scooped up Little Chick and made a beeline for Montana and the Missouri River. Football players win the Super Bowl and head to Disneyland…I head to the Mo. Don’t get me wrong, after months of training and [...]

Just a Typical Day in Craig Montana…

My friend LG has filmed a marketing video for our friends at The Trout Shop in Craig MT and they were kind enough to ask me to record the voiceover for the video. I was happy to help, although with everyone’s fishing schedules, we have had trouble the past few days trying to find a [...]

Hardest Working Man In Fly Fishing

I have just returned from three days of fishing in Montana where the rivers are big sky high and the fish are eating way down low in funkytown. Despite these challenges we had a dynamite day fishing the Big Hole with guide and friend, Eric Thorson, who in our minds has officially earned the moniker [...]

On The Mend

I will be totally honest with you, I’m not great at mending my line. Give me an upstream mend…put a mend in it for me…get that line above your fly…don’t move the fly…too much mend…too little mend. Argh. I have never truly mastered the finesse of the mend. Too much, too little. But somewhere along [...]

Of All The Gin Joints

Today was our first day in Montana and we’d planned a full schedule of errands in Dillon. I was even going to hit the YMCA bright and early to knock out two hours of exercise. But a nutty travel day landed me here in MT in the middle of the nite with no luggage, no [...]

Since I haven’t posted in awhile I thought I would cover a good bit of ground by bringing back the Triple Entendre. This post we’re looking at various meanings for the phrase Run Off. RUN OFF – As in Run Off and Join The Witness Protection Program or Maybe Even The Circus So if you’ve [...]
