Beaverhead River

This summer has been a tough one for me not being able to fish much.  I have been on the water only 4 times the past few months.  With work, family and church I have not had much time at all.  I have enjoyed the time staying busy but always was wishing and wanting to spend more time on the water.  I almost didn’t want to look at Facebook or blogs to see all my friends and acquaintance’s with their pictures, trips and stories.  I might classify it as a little depressed and maybe even jealous.  Bottom line is I checked out a bit the last 5 months.  I imagine most avid anglers might go through a type hiatus once and while where they find themselves so busy they don’t have time to feed the addiction of fly fishing.

With that said I have figured out the only way to get out of this type of funk, GET ON THE DAMN WATER!  A few days ago I traveled to Missoula for work and made it priority to stop along the way to fish.  I ended up on the Beaverhead River for a few hours on Wednesday.  It was one of the best days I have had on the river in years.  The weather was great, I was with friends and the fish were active.  I am back in the saddle again and have another day planned next week to get on for two days.
