Photos of some of the places and the fish from our trip to Montana and Wyoming this summer. The best thing about the fishing…dry flies, and of course watching the fish swim away after "letting go." I found myself thinking about some of my favorite writers in the quiet times…. Harry Middleton, and David James Duncan. Both writers have nurtured my desire to listen for the voices of those I have loved and who are no longer here. There were many times when I could not distinguish between the sounds of the water over rocks or the breeze in stream side bushes and sounds of their laughter and voices.
I'm hoping that some new rod crossman paintings will emerge out of the memories of this trip. It was the first time Jimbo and I had returned to Montana in 20 years.
