Had a blast at Silver Bow Club in Montana.

More to come!

First float we caught a fww browns, lost a big rainbow and ended with a herd of Big Horns greeting us on the bank.

Highly recommend Silver Bow for a great trip with first class accomodations, guides, and cuisine.

I'm hooked on flyfishing.

Learning on a 9wt in the flats was like swinging a telephone pole. 

The Montana trip was a daily woodshed with 6wt and several difft aspects that the salty 9wt didn't transmit.

SBC staff and the river guides were patient and accomodating.

Mrs did quite well too. She's all about offshore billfish but living on a florida flat and not flycasting is pointless.

Now we need a storm to push the sargassum off the reef so I can get back to wading. If not I need to put an anchor on the SUP and pick spots that aren't choked with weed.

I didn’t mean you, that was fake greek. 
 

Looks like a great trip and thank you blessing that Mrs. Growler is an angler. 
 

Yes, this weed sucks.

Nice photos and scenery.   Nothing ruins a bonefish flat quite like a floating matt of sargassum.  Hate that crap.

It's tough to sit on the beach let alone fish with the rotting sargassum.

I'll be using the SUP to get out of the weed zone when I get a favorable wind.

Double thumbs :th::th: looks like a great trip 

It was.

Now that I got my feet wet, if or when I return, I would probably stay out in Ennis, rent a home, do my own cooking and hire my own guides. Wife is onboard.
