Lately I haven’t had much time or energy to post up here, so I figured I’ll throw a few words and photos up finally. A couple weeks back I wrapped up my trip back home to Minnesota and Wisconsin. Aside from the bass and other warmwater species fishing I did while back, I also made a run with my Dad and good family friend Dave to the north shore of Minnesota, for great lakes steelhead. The trip was a success and we got into a few nice fish. A few of the fish we hooked where brought to hand, and some just flat out kicked our ass. They are a very strong fish.

On the way home we stopped at one of my favorite northern Wisconsin trout rivers. The fishing was overall slow, but we caught a couple respectable fish on dries. I took this picture to show how different the coloration of these browns are than Montana fish.
After the trip up north it was time to head back to Montana. I was greeted by great dry fly action with salmonflies and golden stones.

I also started guiding this week, and had a couple good days with a new client and friend, Herb.

After that, my good friend Cody was in town, and we made a run to some of my favorite water and were greeted by more good stonefly fishing on top.

Thanks for reading, I will try and get some more stuff up here soon.
