I Don’t Fish


I’m not proud of this, living as I do near several world class, blue-ribbon trout streams: I don’t fish.

I tried to learn when I first arrived in Montana about 15 years ago, but I got skunked for an entire summer. And as much as I enjoy standing in beautiful surroundings throwing fuzzy hooks all over the place, it just wasn’t enough for me without at least occasionally catching a fish. Hell, a bite would have been something. Besides, I told myself, I can spend tons of money on photography, who needs fishing equipment?

So I was elated to meet and photograph renowned fishing guide Pat Straub a few weeks ago for Big Sky JournalPat is a great guy and we had a blast working together on the Milesnick Ranch north of Belgrade.

And Pat didn’t make fun of me even once. Thanks, Pat.
