Last fishing trip immortalized!

Recommended Posts

I have been inactive on here wayyyyyy to long. I thought I would post my favorite photo of the trip and a little bit about the day for you guys to read. This same article appears on my facebook page, with additional photos. You can find my facebook page by googling The Bear and The Echo photography. Go to the photo sesison Blood and Fishing - Chad vs the Big Lost.




There is nothing I love more in the world, save my family, than the Big Lost River. So when I had a chance to combine the two, it was like a euphoric dream. Chad and I had been trying to schedule a BLR trip for over a year, and last week it finally came together. I literally did not sleep the night before, which is something that only happens to me when the kiddos are sick and when a mouse runs across my face in my bed (that’s another story). We fished a stretch of the Big Lost that neither of us had ever fished before…… one that we had both always wondered about, but never had the time, nor patience, to realize. It took Chad but moments to gear up and hit the water after I parked the Tundra. Me on the other hand…….. It always feels like I am in slow motion during the prelude to glory. After an hour on the water I decided that I wanted to take the opportunity to photograph Chad while he fished. Chad is a master fly fisherman. His casts are both beautiful and deadly. He can read both the water and the mind of his prey incredibly accurately. Chad tripled my catch in 2 hours. It is not often that I give up actual “hard” fishing time on the Big Lost, but these images will forever remind me that things in this world do not matter. Only love matters. Family and friends are keepsakes that we should hoard away in our hearts and memories while we are able. These are for you Chad. Thanks for the day. It is something that I will treasure all the rest of my time on this Earth.
