Default Lewis and Harks Big Hole Trip

Hey Guys,

The two hacks (Paul and Dan) from back east are getting ready for another trip to Big Sky country. Although I have no(very few) regrets about last year’s trip, this years trip to the Big Hole should be better.

Clearly the best part of last year’s trip was meeting Dean_MT and fishing with him on his home waters of Missoula. Not only did we fish some nice water, but I got to meet a forum member that shared some precious water with us........you all may know the water as cutty creek, but I know the water as his.

Unfortunately, he did not have much time to fish with us during our stay and as a result, our trip was a complete failure and we blame him for last year’s poor fishing!

Sooooooooooooooo! This year, we are going allow him to redeem his reputation by meeting us on the Big Hole river in Melrose Montana in an attempt to set things right. This is “gunna be wicked good”.

PS>>>>>>I promise to do a better job taking/posting pictures and the fact that I stink as a fisherman can't be held against Dean_MT

Hey Dan, I didn't know last year was a complete failure. I quite enjoyed being driven to the river and drinking your beer! Not catching enough fish was a bummer. No guarantees in fishing, but I almost guarantee this year will be better. Almost only because of this darn drought and I don't k now what it will mean in October. Otherwise, October is always better than September and the BH is simply one of the best places, anywhere.

Can't wait to see you guys.

Hope you guys have a great trip. Your post's title, "Lewis and Harks" reminds me of a photo I have by Ron Schmidt of his dogs, "Lewie and Clark."

So Lewis and Harks, meet Lewie and Clark below.

Hey John,

I was just kidding about the trip being a complete failure. More fish would have been nice but it was still a great time.

Have you been there recently, Dave? I'd love to hear some first hand accounts of any recent fishing...but I guess recent means about 4 weeks ago for fishing the BH. On the plus side, those fish haven't seen many flies this year.
