Steve "SAFETY FIRST" Bielenberg and Travis Lowe at McCoy's

  Steve B. "Do you have any idea how many deaths occur from falls off of a ladder every year in the United States....?"   Travis  "Ah Steve, I'm only on the first step"   All joking aside I think Steve was telling me "NO YOU CAN'T HAVE MY HAT!"  I'm really looking forward to returning to Dillon in a week.  This time for a couple of days and time to soak it all in.  Super 8 Motel here I come! YIKES. Steve Bielenberg and owner Clif Inge once again are hosting me for some more shooting on Fox Island and Big Meadow spring creeks at the McCoy Spring Creeks.  Steve has assured me that the hoppers are of "biblical proportions". Hopefully I'll get an evening of shooing in during the Golden Hour during my first day in Montana and then Tuesday it's a full day of shooting as Steve Summerhill owner of the River's Edge Fly Shop in Bozeman joins us. Summerhill is no stranger to McCoy's, he guides there and appeared on an episode of HOOK.TV at McCoy's with John Dietsch. This time I'm getting up in the Duck Blind to shoot and Steve B.  I'll have your wine!  More Later  T>

After a week of trying to track down Greg Thomas, I finally did. Thomas is a busy guy and fresh off a trip from Alaska. If you're schooled in fly fishing, you know who Greg Thomas is. So I won't waste my time with an intro paragraph. I will say Greg may just have the coolist fly fishing website/blog ever. If you haven't already, check, where Thomas mixes up a health dosage of libations ( key to all angling debauchery) with his seemingly effortless writing style. When combined the two make a potent potable. Greg has graciously agreed to be part of the film, if  and when I can get down to Ennis for an interview with him. Hopefully that prove as hard as actually just getting a hold of him.
