Montana winters bring us much to cheer about. Short days with no interference from others. Long runs without any other creatures, except possibly a goldeneye paddling by.

The dirty little secret is that fire years offer great fishing.  The smoke acts as artificial cloud cover and critter sized trout make mistakes under these [...]

Images from the fall are fantastic. The fall and low angle light is really adds magic to the photos. I love this time period. Shorter days, fabulous fishing, and a time where friends, fowl, and fish keep us busy. “It’s easy to get lots of great shots in the fall,”  says Mark. “Just keep your [...]
