Be patient young Grasshopper…

Hey Zach, can we get a few more of these?

As July winds down to a blurry end, shop Joey’s around the great state of Montana are busily restocking the crap out of Morrish’s Hopper. According to the USDA, swarms of grasshoppers will soon descend upon us like Locusts and destroy everything in their path. Now I’m starting to wonder if I ordered enough flies. No worries, our good buddy Zach Mertens at Idylwilde will surely come to the rescue if things get dire.

So You Want To Be A Fishing Guide

Did you ever dream of being a fishing guide in Alaska? Well our good buddy Joe did, and now he’s living the dream at the Copper River Lodge.

In this installment of “So You Want To Be A Fishing Guide” Joe Hyde shows his young guide crew how to clean a composting toilet. Joe is a fearless leader, he makes sure to show his crew that he’s not afraid to do the dirty work and thus ensures he will have something more important to do when it comes time to repeat the progress in August.
