after "Bill Dancing" (bass pro fisherman) the first trophy of the day and losing it I finally landed the biggest fish of my life....a trophy, slightly over 20", Rainbow in a spring. I still can't believe it.
The big one was for Martin....he has so very much wanted me to land trophy.
Our Annual Vacation in Montana photograph....(we have one framed for every year.)
Jay Dixon, our guide and pictured above with me really is an expert fisherman and if you decide to try a day or week of fly fishing he's a good choice. After I started actually listening to him I did get the big one. Aside from that Jay really shows you a nice time.
Do you see the big M on the side of that Mountain? That M for Missoula is above the University of Montana and right behind our hotel. This evening, having some quiet time Rollie made a decision.
Disgusted with my vacationing body and no real strenuous exercise this week, and always wanting to try....Rollie climbed that path to the M. all by myself.
I almost passed out. My knees were knocking so badly when I reached the top that I wondered if others could tell I was trembling. Lack of air and fear of heights combined this was one goal I seriously cannot believe I achieved.
What a day for Rollie! I survived and am really proud of myself!
I am going to sit here and enjoy my view for the last night, having my last Trout Slayer Ale (that you must catch a trout to be worthy of drinking), saying goodbye and looking so forward to being back home.
