Three simple wishes for your Thanksgiving day and long weekend. May you share at least one meal with a four-legged friend, out under the Big Sky (eating with your dog in front of the TV doesn’t count); they’re often better company than the two-legged version. May the sun shine just enough to make icicles form tomorrow morning […]
I was sitting at my desk at work yesterday and realized that I was starting my fourth week there. It’s been almost a month. Wow. Time flies. I then realized that I have barely gone fishing in a couple of months. Hunting season, girlfriend, and work have been priorities. But we’re coming up on one […]
The Montana Story: Forty Years of Success from North Fork Studios on Vimeo. In 1974, Montana did something that stunned anglers across the state and the nation: it stopped stocking trout in streams and rivers that supported wild trout populations. After decades of use and millions of dollars invested, hatchery production was not helping, and […]
From all of us here at Chi Wulff we’d like to offer a from-the-heart Thank You to all past and present members of the armed forces who have served and are serving our country. We appreciate the sacrifice made by you and your families, and while we certainly can’t grasp the depth and breadth and […]

Fall is a time of changes. Leaves change, the weather changes, we all know the drill. I’m excited to announce a change of my own. I will no longer be working at the fly shop. An opportunity has come up over the past couple of weeks that I simply couldn’t turn down. For pretty much […]
This is a fly fishing blog, so I won’t drag this post out. Last weekend I had the opportunity to go antelope hunting with my girlfriend’s dad. I have chased antelope with a bow once before (to great frustration and no success) and was excited to do it with a rifle this time. He and […]

Alan over at Growler Fills | Craft Beer Enthusiasm out of Missoula recently published the only up to date (that we’ve seen) directory / list of regional brewers cranking out Fresh Hop Ales here at the end of hop harvest season. Montana has been home to small scale hops production for years, though that’s changed […]

For the past six weeks and change, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I have been seriously out of pocket, executing a somewhat long and drawn out move westward (at least starting the return back home). She was presented a sterling opportunity to further her objectives within the management group (retail) with Orvis; we strongly […]
Hooked on the Homeland from Ryan Koch on Vimeo.
I’ve written before about how fishing places with lots of people just isn’t my thing. That’s one of the reasons I log a lot more hours on the river during the off season than the summer. But even during the crush of summer there are still a lot of places that just don’t have many […]
From the Blue Ribbon Flies (West Yellowstone) shop newsletter this morning… I need your help. Long story today but please read on. Last evening I spent a delightful time with fishing friends Cliff and Kathy Schaeffer of Livingston, MT. We arrived on the Madison just after a hailstorm passed through. The sun attempted to […]
