    Phood 4 Phish

    THE SUPERMARKET
    A Broad Array Of Bugs
    they trap 'em, we fling 'em
    EVER SEE ONE OF THESE? 
    FISH HERE.
    -------
    .. Hard as it is to believe, there are some folks as much, (or more,) interested in fish food as the fish. They capture insects and study the little critters. They trap them. They select places where they know the bugs to be in numbers sufficient for a good sample. Might that be a good place to fish - and catch? We think so.
    .. Try it: you'll like it.
    -------
    .. Our neighborhood preferred fishery is in full bloom. It is seldom mentioned in the guide books: certainly not frequented by most of the seasonal counter help at the local feather merchants. It is scorned by those seeking to tell stories about the glory waters, and is absolutely full of bears and fish.
    BEAR SPRAY IS MANDATORY
    .. Most of the road to the parking area is not paved, (aw shucks.)..
    .. Half of the road has potholes that will break a BMW's spring pack, (golly gee.)
    .. Several small vans have been lost in those potholes, (salvage opportunity?)
     .. OOPS! [komputer krash - now using 6-year-old laptop and an antique server with Ubuntu with Samba - things will be rough and intermittent  for a short time.]
    .. The water on this little creek is the only water in the neighborhood running at seasonal discharge norms. It is cold, clear and full of eager fish.
    .. Fishing in this water requires both a Yellowstone National Park fishing permit and a Montana fishing license. A small price to pay for the catching that's involved.
    .. We like it because it's quiet, usually elbow-free, and there are leviathans of untold dimensions and a bunch of eager smaller fish that keep us entertained.
    .. Hope not to see you there.
