“Let the river take you, wherever that may be… “

sounds cliché but how cool is this ?

Sound recordist and Montana local, ‘Fishman’ Mike Kasic, has an unmatched obsession for the underwater wilderness of the Yellowstone River. In this 10 minute essay film, Mike swims the Yellowstone like a human-fish through swift river canyons, watching trout in fast currents filled with frothing water tornadoes, stopping only to body surf river waves.

BrainWashem’ Young- Yasmin and her nails

fancy nails or not, here’s a nice fly tied by a nice young lady via papa Hywel Morgan.

this version of the Montana nymph, with it’s pheasant tail rear, dubbed thorax instead of chenille and skipping the soft hackle makes it in my oppinion a better and more ‘all-rounder fly’ fishing-wise, and a great pattern to start off a person’s tying career. (come to think about it, outside of the basic black/lime green color scheme and that it’s a nymph, there’s isn’t all that much ‘Montana’ in this fly… )
anyhow ! and regardless, it’s all good and something you might want to share with your wee ones (and get them away from pink nail varnishes, video games and cell phones, at least for a while… ) enjoy !
