Sometimes You Just Gotta Swing

When was the last time you were on a swing--like a real swing at the amusement park where you're way up in the air,  swinging out over a lake? As lame as it sounds, there's something about it that's incredibly gratifying. Maybe it's the freedom you feel. Maybe it's nostalgia. Maybe it's being a little dizzy for a while. Maybe it's just a change of scenery.

We are taking a break from the 'dream' this weekend. Jill, Patrick and I are in Salt Lake at Lagoon. There's no shooting, fishing, hiking, or really; anything related to 'The Montana Dream' except just playing around for a little while and as much as I can't wait to get back out in the mountains chasing mule deer around with my dad's. 30-.06, this is a nice change of pace.

We've rode almost every roller-coaster; been upside-down, twisted around and jostled until one of us almost puked. Patrick grew some major cahuna's this weekend taking on ALL of the haunted houses at Lagoon--even the 5X ones where "Absolutely No Child Can Stand!" In fact, he did the "Zombie Lock Down" three times. (Thank god for the speed pass.)

One more very special day for Jill then we're back to ducks, deer, and bows. Tonight is the Tool concert. Remember that saying, "If it's too loud you're too old?" Tonight will be a big test.

Look At That

This weekend is spent preparing for Halloween and taking some time off to visit family and friends in Salt Lake City. I'll be honest, while driving up through Park City and on to Midway to visit Jill's cousins at their cabin, I kept my eyes open for deer and watched as anglers fished the Provo River. This preying mantas was crawling around as we carved pumpkins and I wondered if trout ever see those things and if so, would they eat them? I bet they would.

Thursday was my last day on the books and one would think the last thing I'd want to do was to be on the river but it's more than that. I just love being in the outdoors chasing things. It is who I am.

Great Falls Project Healing Waters--Fall 2016

This last Saturday, Montana Dream Fishing Outfitters LLC, was happy to help the Great Falls chapter of Project Healing Waters with their annual fishing event on the Missouri River. It was a great day with some great folks who deserve to get out on the water and have a little fun. Thanks to John Lynn for putting it all together as well as Dave Carnahan, Jim Murray, Drew Christian, and Ray Leonhardt for their guiding services. The vets definitely appreciated it.

Walleyes on the Mo

I grew up in Minnesota and spent most of my life fishing for walleyes only to come to Montana and catch this one on a fly rod--the largest walleye I've ever caught. I sent it off with a friend to get mounted 7 or 8 years ago and finally got it back a few weeks ago. I've added it to my collection in the man-cave.
Today we take out the vets from the Great Falls chapter of Project Healing Waters. I certainly appreciate the relationship Montana Dream Fishing Outfitters has with them. It should be a great day!
