Wondering around Montana and Wyoming over the past four weeks has been super good fun.   Winters in West Yellowstone can grind on you and if one does not get off the mountain and head to the lower elevations, things can get a bit stale.  What I am talking about is that fact that Spring does exist in other places outside of West Yell during March and April.  I wore flip flops, played golf in a t-shirt (still suck at golf) and witnessed someone actually mowing their lawn.

The joy of fishing and exploring new places this spring, has reminded me of why I moved out West 17 years ago.  It’s huge and fishing every nook and cranny is nearly impossible.  I get out on the local streams each spring, but sometimes, you just need to hit a river that you know nothing about.

Maybe a rumor, here and there….

Driven by a few times…never fished…..

A local friend who wants to fish on his days off…..another buddy willing to scout things out with….a drift boat and cooler full of beer.

Road trips that revolve around fishing don’t suck. Plan one soon.
