    -------

    .. The neighbors are pretty cagey folks. They know where and when to fish. They know how to get there, and usually don't say much about it.
    .. If you see two vehicles abandoned in an out-of-the-way area - near water - you better rig up.
    .. Of course three's a crowd in some areas. But not in others. The Madison River is still fishing very well at Raynolds Pass.
    .. The neighbors don't mind the drive in the winter. This winter it's about like summer driving. Even the access road is passable in two-wheel drive.
    .. Small streamers, buggy grubs, wet flies, and nymphs will fill your dance card even in mid day.
    .. The midges have slowed down just a bit, but the fish don't seem to mind.
    .. Although the days are warm, (to 40 degrees,) the nights are cold enough to keep a bit of snow on the ground.
    .. The trails to the river are well worn and the post-holes few, far between, and shallow at worst.
    .. The resident sheep are licking salt off the road and do not seem to mind posing for a portrait. Maybe we'll go back tomorrow.
