Missoula Fly Fishing
Just imagine the perfect day on the river. With your fellow angler, you awaken before dawn to the faint glow of yellow and blues beginning to light the dark, night sky. The moon still high in the air, the stars just beginning to fade, you anticipate the day’s river adventure. As you sip your morning coffee, you walk around outside in the cool, crisp air, breathing in its freshness while the sweet sounds of birds chirping and the fat squirrels begin rustling through the tall grasses and trees. At this moment, you feel contentment arise in your heart.
Loading the drift boat with gear invigorates your body and mind and you experience the spirit of nature calling to you. Decked out in the best fishing gear and accompanied by expert Montana Fishing Guides, you embark on the river in your drift boat or raft. With waders, dry flies, rod and reels, and super secret custom tied flies, you feel confident that your day on the river will be great. With current, up-to-date fishing conditions checked and rechecked, you are off on the adventure of a lifetime!
As the day unfolds, the long hours seem to both linger and fly by during your excursion. From the coolness of the morning dew to the setting of the evening sun, you relax into the groove of Mountain Time. Quite often, time seems to stand still as you watch your dry fly floating down the middle river bubble line and await that giant cutthroat to slip up and eat your high floating goldenstone. Suddenly, there it is, finning up headfirst and he eats it! After a perfect hook set and a good fight, you hold a prize cutthroat by the head and tail just before returning the orange, yellow and red shimmering creature back to its watery home. Smiles and laughter, and congratulatory looks of praise exude from the vacationers’ countenances.
Now you’ve experienced it. The Last, Best Place is your home away from home. No need to discuss what it means. The meaning has become clear to you at this moment, which you’ve shared with nature at its best.
