A Montana Honeymoon

Farrah enjoying some Beaverhead caddis fishing.
A couple of weeks ago the wife's cousin and his new wife came through Dillon celebrating their recent nuptials, and it worked out that I was able to jump in the boat with them for a day of caddis dry fishing down the Beav.  Ke'lah and Nathan are as close as siblings, and I tried for a week to find some parallel between going fishing with them and the infamous scene in a river runs through it with Norman's future brother-in-law.  Alas I couldn't, because Nathan is a great guy, awesome fisherman and enjoying his honeymoon, not a riverside escapade involving a lady with a tattoo (Buster here wants to fish).

Nathan went to UMW here in Dillon, and it's actually embarrassing to say that this is the first time we have gotten to fly fish together.  In fact his now wife Farrah made it into the blue skiff last summer for a trip down the lower end.  Hunting season is now what tends to draw these two to the area, and so fishing is not likely in our immediate future again, beer drinking and hunting stories are, which is the next best thing.
