Back In Montana


No that is not a photo of a creek on the west side of Andros. That is the Big Hole River taken from the Maidenrock bridge just a couple hours ago.

As you can see there are snow flurries in the mountains. The river is in great shape with a flow of about 500cfs.

A friend of mine stopped by yesterday and said “lets go fishing”. I explained to him that I just came from 85 degree weather and I’m freezin my butt off. So he went anyway and did pretty good.

Fishing is going to get hot in a week or two with the skwalla action starting. For now it’s nymphs and streamers with a slow strip.

The shop will be open in about a week but we are ready to run shuttles now. Call 406-267-3346 to set it up or knock on the back door of the shop. Art and Bobby are there full time.

  2. You made it! Down here it has been blowing a pelicans nose off. That’s what’s pelicans say anyway.

    • Hey Morten. I’ve also heard it called “humpin’ a woofer” down in the keys. Always cracks me up when I hear that one. Not sure what the dogs say though.

  3. OK…just got caught up with antics on Andros….and I admit, I surely miss all of you crazy fishers of men…and women(my Danish Anne!)…might just have to hope for health and time to catch up next winter.
