My new go to camera for quick “snaps” is my iPhone 8+ as mentioned in a previous Blog Post its easy to see why.Here are some recent pics taken with my iPhone …enjoy !
I recently purchased an iphone8+.The camera is amazing ! Lots of cool features have been added to it which is very impressive.H ave a look a some recent Fly-Fishing Porn shot with the iPhone8+ .
Since late June we have been getting at it.The Rivers have shaped up and are looking very sexy.We have had some awesome days on rivers with awesome people.Enjoy the pics!
Ah Montana.The name conjures up images of all things wild.Most think of the State as the last best place … in the lower 48.I’ll agree.It’s a place filled with Mountains,Prairres,Cowboys and Cowgirls,Smalltowns with cool Bars which (the bars ) come with the usual Montana Bar names such as The Stockman,The Commercial,The Mint and The Angus.
Since my first visit in 1993 I have been religiously going back to get my Montana fix.Sure the State has grown, so has the world.Maybe less 5th generation Montanan’s around but most of the “new folks ‘ fit in.
Montana is a mindset with a gorgeous back drop.I also heard the Bird Hunting is good and the Trout fishing is not to shabby ..enjoy the snaps !
For the last few years my “Montana Stop” has now included some exploration of the country side including searching out some small stream fishing.It’s led to some great new discoveries and although the fish are not as big or the creeks as fertile as the nearby Missouri River it provides an excellent crowd free experience with a very scenic backdrop.
The creeks are perfect 4 weight water, and usually I can get by with fishing a Hopper/Dropper rig which is a lot of fun to cast and very effective.Of course when in doubt small streamers also get it done.
The trout which are be a mix of browns,brookies and rainbows are generally not to selective provided that your imitation is close to what is hatching.The creeks themselves are mostly Freestone with a few Spring or “Spring like” Creeks thrown in.
Each creek has it’s own little charm, the scenery is awesome and the trout are the bonus.
Of course every stream has it’s own little personality.Some you can jump across others demand careful wading.
The beauty in small stream fishing is that you leave the crowds and driftboat behind and downsize your tackle, carrying nothing but the essentials.Then start walking. .. and fishing !
My fascination with trout living in these little creeks probably is a result of reading to many John Gierach essays, or a mix of that and digging the scenery.Perhaps it’s just getting out of my driftboat for a different change of pace.Whatever the reason(s) are it’s been a lot of fun.
As my trek north continues so will the search.Of course findings will remain nameless as they should.However the end of the day Beer will be Ice cold.
