Mostly new
I've been a member awhile but haven't introduced myself. My wife & I recently moved to Dillon, MT from the midwest for semi-retirement after vacationing in this part of the world since 1971. The plan was/is to work part time as a veterinarian to support my fishing habit. Unfortunately, between the weather & calving season, I've only fished 1 1/2 hours the first 10 weeks we've been here. That'll change! I'll also be looking for Ruffed Grouse habitat come fall, now that my surgically fused ankle will allow me to walk in the timber. I look forward to more news & pictures from all the members, particularly any Purdue Boilermakers!

Dave: Welcome to the forum! You certainly picked a great location for retirement, once that happens, now to figure out how to get to semi-retirement! :D

Hey Dave,

You are off on the good foot here by making an introduction and letting people know where you are at. it's hard to believe how many folks we get joining and then asking questions about fishing without considering that location means so much when it comes to replies.

Welcome to the forum and I hope you post often enough so we don't forget that you're here :)

Awesome plan! Welcome to the forum. Find a lot of good spots to fish so you can share them with me next time I visit that area!:eek:

Re: Mostly new
Subject to correction here but I think one of our most established members lives in Dillon. Nothing beats local info, cups of coffee (well maybe a adult quaff), and a road map.;)

Hey dude, you have no excuses any more......there is a package on the way to help get you into fishing. Heard a rumor the skwala hatch may start this weekend. Oh and a little something for the boss.


p.s. nice thumbnail photo above

Re: Mostly new
Dave, welcome to the forum! The members are a valuable resource, across the country, in giving advice and help. Especially recently, on a trip to a new area. I love fishing new areas, but the learning curve can be discouraging unless you hire a guide.
Keep in touch!

This is very true, especially given the fact it's country & more wide in here. I think it's easy to think that everybody's in "your neck of the woods". Good to hear about you, welcome aboard.

Re: Mostly new
Welcome to the forum, Dave. You picked a great place to settle down. You are in "striking distance" of some great fishing water, and interesting western history. Enjoy !
