I just got back from Montana with my old friends from the FISH (Forum for Indiana Subjects in Health) crew. This was FISH XXI whew... time flies when you're having fun!! Over the years, FISH has been to Montana, Wyoming, Belize, the Bahamas, Canada just to name a few. This year we repeated a previous year's trip with a visit to SW Montana. This year, we fished the classics like the Madison, the Jefferson, the Big Hole and the Beaverhead, as well as numerous private ranch spring creeks. We had some tricos in the morning, lots of big trout on hoppers in the afternoon, perfect weather, and a great group! 
Here are some photos from Day 1... 
On this day, Terry Heath and I fished a private ranch and after a slow morning, picked up the pace in the afternoon. I caught a great 22" brown and numerous fish in the 16-18" range:
