The crew has downsized again as we head into the fall season. Young Teagan is off to start his college career at that one school down in Bozeman. At least we know he will keep his root beer cold with that nice dorm sized fridge. We will miss having this kid around. In case you just thought.. read more →

That’s right!  A long lost trout species found earlier this year.  Staff member and contributor to the CurrentSeam blog, Taylor Todd, caught this rare member of the Brown Trout family.  Mr. Todd was embarrassed to reveal the photo to the rest of the staff.   With a short walk to Joe’s Bar Taylor confessed to.. read more →

As we pass our way through the long and hot days of Montana’s summer there are a few times where fishing doesn’t sound like the best way to enjoy your time off. Some of us are getting ready for bow hunting season while others are driving all over the state to find a new car… read more →
