Pandemic Crowds Bring 'Rivergeddon' to Montana's Rivers
As urbanites flock to forests and rivers to escape coronavirus threats, trailheads are cramped with parked cars and fishing on the Madison River is like a Disneyland ride.


Trail head parking nightmare

>>>BOZEMAN, Mont. — The Madison River rushes down out of the snows and springs atop the Yellowstone plateau, a dark blue, rock-studded, world-class fishing stream.

The fishing season is nearly finished, but a season of discontent continues. Throughout the summer and fall, there have been traffic jams on the river, and the number of large fish has declined.

"You're in a flotilla with five boats in front of you and five in back of you," said Carl Hamming, a board member of a local chapter of Trout Unlimited, which wants to limit commercial guides on the river. "It seems like everyone was flocking to Montana this summer," he said.

>>>The long-whispered-about purchase of the South Fork Lodge in Swan Valley was completed this summer.
Jimmy Kimmel, Oliver White buy South Fork Lodge

Comedian and late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" purchased the famed property on the South Fork of the Snake River in June with partner and well-known guide Oliver White. The lodge is situated on a stunning bend in the South Fork of the Snake River just off U.S. Highway 26.



The purchase price could not be determined but the 25.83-acre property was listed for $7.95 million.

The TV series Yellowstone probably isn't helping either.

Fly-Fishing the Ernest Hemingway Way

A new fly-fishing heritage collection inspired by the 'Old Man and the Sea' author's favored gear lets anglers cast lines like the legend

>>> WHEN ERNEST Hemingway's well-worn steamer trunk containing his fly-fishing gear disappeared from a train bound for Sun Valley, Idaho, in 1940, the loss was so crushing that the author never again waded in the shallows. Instead, he concentrated his angling efforts far offshore, catching record-breaking pelagics like sailfish and marlin.

The trunk's disappearance also "shook" the family, said his great-grandson Patrick Hemingway Adams, who is helping launch the Hemingway Inshore Collection of rods, reels, inshore boats and more designed after the old man's heart.

Debuting Dec. 1, the handcrafted 9-weight fly reels ($1,200, ernesthemingwayinshore.com) are machined by Everol, an Italian brand favored by the author for their performance and durability. Each comes in a mahogany box packed in freshly planed wood shavings, smelling the way you'd expect anything "Hemingway" to smell: earthy, warm, woodsy.

>>>Formerly known as Highland Outfitters, Boone's Fly Shop is located on the second floor suite of a refurbished and old antique building at 140 S. Depot St., Highland Outfitters is a full-service company ready to supply all of your fishing gear needs and put you on the water with experienced guides. Some of the prime fly-fishing rivers and streams serviced by the company are found in Linville, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Boone as well as the Watauga and the South Holston Rivers in Tennessee.

Owner Alex Dale found success with his Highland Outfitters store originally located in Linville. Then, he started a second business with the Foscoe Fishing Company located on Rte. 105 outside of Boone, which is still in business. Then, when he found out that this prime piece of real estate was open to rent in downtown Boone, he decided to take a leap and move his Highland Outfitters operation to the downtown area where the tourists and potential fly-fishing enthusiasts are thick, especially during the holiday months.

That damn movie, you know which one I'm talking about, is still attracting more people to OUR sport.... that and the damn pandamic...



Fly fishing school left me tied in knots
If Brad Pitt weren't so darn handsome we could have skipped this midlife crisis.

>>> worry that may come across as bragging, or degree-shaming. But please know that this diploma attests that I "possess the skills and knowledge necessary to enjoy a lifetime of fly fishing," and I'm now fairly certain that a lifetime of fly fishing is one of those chronic diseases that are probably best to avoid, like leprosy or golf.

No, this certificate is nothing more than written proof of a midlife crisis, one I can now see was triggered by a willful denial of failing eyesight, the ridiculous male desire to pursue simple pleasures in painfully complicated ways, and an undeniable attraction to Brad Pitt. It is also a reminder of the $399 I owe my credit card company for the class.

I Went To The Woods: Getting down to it
You're here to catch a steelhead, not to fit in.




>>>You fish down to the end of the section and battle a little shaker trout for a few seconds before it comes off. You start walking back down the river feeling like you've spent most of the day tying knots, switching tips, leaders and hiking. Now you're back to where you started and you're hungry. For food. Food for steelhead. For a spoon.

Celebrating a Life Outdoors: Leigh H. Perkins, 1927-2021




>>> Leigh H. Perkins, who purchased The Orvis Company in 1965 and over the next three decades transformed it into one of the country's most respected sporting, apparel, and dog brands, passed away at the age of 93 on May 7, 2021, in Monticello, Florida.

Although he built his reputation as a shrewd businessman and marketer, Leigh was most at home wading in a trout stream or walking behind a bird dog in the field. He was a lifelong outdoorsman who hunted or fished more than 250 days a year into his 90s, and his reverence for nature was at the heart of his drive to conserve land and water resources for future generations.
