Over the past couple years this blog has faded into the abyss of the interwebs. But I’m here to tell you that it’s going to live on and thrive.
First off, I’ll catch you up on what life has been like for me in Montana for the last six months or so. I had a great summer guiding fly fisherman for Latitudes Outfitting Co. here in western Montana. There were lots of great times to be had on the water, and a lot of happy clients!
On my days off, I had time to explore parts of Montana that I hadn’t previously spent much time in. Specifically, northwest Montana and Glacier National Park.
Near the end of summer I flew back to Minnesota to fish muskies with my Dad and high-school buddy Dominic. It was an amazing trip and we experienced the best muskie fishing any of us had seen.
Check out this great video Dominic put together of our trip!
It’s safe to say it was an amazing summer. Near the end of August I started my final semester at the University of Montana. Going to college at UM was the best decision of my life so far, and it was a bittersweet feeling to finally be done with school. Even though I had my hands full with classwork during the fall, hunting doesn’t play second fiddle to anything come autumn. It was a great season afield, and the freezer is definitely full.
Right now we’re going through the only month of the year where there’s not a lot to do (in my opinion). But soon enough we’ll be experiencing some of the best dry fly fishing of the year during late-March and April. The Missoula area of Montana boasts one of the best, if not THE best Skwala stonefly hatch in the country during this time. I’m pretty excited for that and for spring to hurry up and get here. Stay tuned!
