A Perfect Swap

- Before telling my story, I would like to apologize for the screen shot I had to use for the photo. I was fishing Putah creek in northern California, and my phone dropped into the water, which was where the original photo was stored. This photo is from the first time I fished the Bighorn River, or in Montana at all for that matter. I was working on a dude ranch in northern Wyoming, and planning what to do on my next day off when one of the fishing guides on the ranch came up with a suggestion. In exchange for being floated down the Bighorn with a friend, I spent a day with his two children so he and his wife could get away to fish on one of their days off. A perfect swap in my eyes. We floated down the river and were amazed with the amount and size of trout we were floating right over. My first experience fishing in Montana will be very hard to beat, big fish, and great company.
