My big float trip on the Great Madison River in Montana with top guides Dan and Marty from Beartooth Flyshop on the Madison showing me the way, Dan’s 86 year old father named "Grandpa" John and author of this report.
We floated from Ruby Creek to Varney Bridge. Dan and Marty fished hoppers and dry flies with good success. Grandpa fished with his favorite shop recommendation, beadhead nymphs, with great success hooking and catching Rainbows, Browns, and Whitefish and also missing some really big fish. All in all it was a really great float hooking and catching all day. Thanks boys!

This was our long awaited big day off with my girlfriend, Jeanne Williams who owns Rainbow Valley Lodge and our satellite fly shop called Odell Creek Fly Shop (Jeanne and I affectionately call it that), with our guide du jour, Dave Hall. The weather was great and the bite was on most of the day. Someone had a favorite fly they were a bit too stubborn to change but that fly did catch some nice trout most of the day. Heh, heh, heh! That’s a hint. We had a blast. Thanks Dave.
