My annual tour of Montana recently took me through the southwestern part of the state. Along with my pals Buster and Derf we fished 8 rivers in 3 weeks either floating or wading. Bears and moose were encountered but we survived to fish another day. We used the full arsenal of flies and methods with the collateral damage being 3 broken rods. Mothers little helpers … 2 bottles of Ibuprofen for the sore knees and backs, 75 cappuccinos (I brought a machine) and copious quantities of pastries. Enjoy the shots and put this area on your bucket list.
