    Even In Montana

    FENCE OFF ACCESS
    Out Of New Jersey
    a russian connection
    ELECT ME - I'M RUSSIAN RICH 
    -------
    .. The carpetbagger barrage from and, into Montana continues.
    .. After sending our favorite Californian to Washington DC, we're being bombarded once again by Greg Gianforte from his throne in New Jersey.
    .. This is just a short note here to point out what The Guardian just published, {LINK-G.}
    .. This recurrant posier is trying get elected again and he's probably not even legally eligible.
    .. Thanks to Montana Cowgirl for their post and the heads up to all of Montana - even fly fishers.

    .. Some housekeeping chores:

    >> This blog is searchable: box at upper left,
    >> Many links have evaporated, we're working on it,
    >> Some images are no longer available, = free hosting,
    >> We're still covered by creative commons,
    >> New IRL = Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers,

    .. Madison River now pumped up to more than 100cfs above seasonal norm. The color has finally arrived and the bankfull waters are being augmented by our recent wet snow and rain during the last few warm days. The temperature is warmer than usual for this time of year but is still holding below 60°F.
    .. Down canyon on the Gallatin River discharge is about 200cfs above seasonal norms. Color is finally being added by the Taylor Fork.
    .. There are bugs both above and below the surface. Clarity hasn't yet been reduced to the point of stupidity and a large dark nymph or enormous Woolly Bugger is the way to go above Big Sky.
    CASUAL DRESS
    .. Hebgen Reservoir is still producing largish fish near the shore. The pods are beginning to break up and a good pair of binoculars with polarized glasses should allow sight fishing for another 10 days or so.
    .. Try floating a heavily greased Casual Dress trailed by a Prince Nymph.

    .. The coals need stirring, the slab needs adjusting, the end is in sight, and after seven hours we don't want to disappoint the neighbors.
