Monster Day on the Clark Fork
G'day all though it is actually evening,

Here in Montana it is actually still day light as it will be until about 10 or 10:30. We just got off the Clark after another Epic day with our friend and guide extraordinaire John Herzer of Blackfoot River Outfitters in Missoula. The last 3 days were my son Justin's first fly fishing experience and he "Roped Em". Big Healthy fish using just about every technique in the book. Streamers to dries, Dry-droppers to double nymph rigs he got a taste of everything. 3 days and 3 different rivers. Talk about being spoiled..... But he is hooked..... Hook, Line and Sinker. Heck, he wants to fish more tonight. For those looking for one of the best fly fishing guide services anywhere in the world you do not have to look much further than Blackfoot River Outfitters.

Justin and I have been in my favorite town in the world for the last 4 days and everything has been amazing. Since this was a father-son deal and would be a whirlwind for us so I did not even make time for a drink with my numerous friends who live here. Though Justin has fished with me his entire life he never seemed to want to fly fish. Clearly not the case any more and I could not be happier. Almost makes an old man want to cry.

Big Cutties, Cut Bows, Browns, Bullies, Bows, just an entire assortment pack.

I will try and post some pictures later as John will send some to us and probably will post one or two on their website.

Missoula Montana.. Eden or Heaven??? Pick one.
