Living in Montana, floating the Yellowstone

So what is the activity of choice when I have a weekend off?  Floating the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley.  This week my nephew Jason is visiting from Kansas City.  The fishing float was a gift from my good friend Derek DeYoung.  If you don’t know who Derek is and you love fishing and you love art, you should check it out.

Jason won the ‘best fish of the day’ award.  A 16 inch fatty Rainbow.  And I am happy to say that the fish still lives and thrives in the Yellowstone.

and oh yes, #meaningfultobehold

Derek’s patented OPEN HEART casting technique! It’s like yoga for fishermen and women.
