How to celebrate a year

Good way to start the weekend.

One year and a couple of days ago my wife and I got married in a beautiful church overlooking the Big Hole river.  This year we had a weekend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and decided to head up to Craig, MT and hit the Mo.  We took a leisurely pace getting to Craig, including a stop at the farmers market in Helena, which is awesome.  We got checked in to our cabin, Ben at Headhunters hooked us up with the right bugs and we headed up to the dam.  Once we found the right water, fishing was automatic.  When she wasn't wrestling with our over-caffeinated rat terrier, Ke'lah was able to hook a pile of fish.  A fine dinner at Izaak's capped off the evening and set us up for fishing on Sunday.

Sunday we floated from Craig down to Deerborn with success relative to the amount of effort put forth.  B the end of the float we just floated down the middle with the rest of the crowds and enjoyed the warm weather and great scenery.  Craig might become the annual anniversary trip for a while, what a great place to celebrate a first year of marriage.
What's in there? What's in there? What's in there?
Oh a brown trout, yum!
Perfect end to a great day.
