So now that I have updated my blog for summer 2010 I should tell everyone that I have taken a new job for fall 2010... I will be working at Brush Creek Lodge in Saratoga Wy... This is an all inclusive luxury guest ranch located nex to the medicine bow national forest... We have privaet access on both Brush Creek and the North Platte... I have a few more days up here in Montana and then it is off to Wyoming again...

Then at the end of the trip... I caught the biggest fish I have ever caught on a dry fly! (except for NZ)... This bad boy at a golden stonefly.. This might be the prettiest fish I have ever caught.. it was a long summer but this fish really capped it off...
Hank and I did a night float looking for a big fish.. we put in after work around 7... we finally dragged the boat off the water around 2 or so... we caught some decent fish... then the sun went down.. BIG HUGE moon.. nothing.. we tried mice.. streamers... everything not hits.. no tugs.. I guess we will keep trying
Then skip forward to the end of July (the next time i went fishing)... I spent 2 days on the Missouri with my good friend Jeff Church... we caught a few really nice fish.... both of these fish were feeding heavy on caddis tight to the bank.. Al Caucci would have been proud :)
Well Sage did her first float on the Big Hole with Hank and I... she loved the boat... all kinds of fun stuff to try and chew on... then she found Hanks boat bag... this Articulated Zoo Cougar bit Sage right in the lip.. she was really upset... good thing it was barbless :) Poor girl... she has now learned her lesson.. after trying to bite a stonefly that bit her back in the nose :) she was 8 weeks old here
