What a memorable week, despite wind, rain and threat of snow!
Chris, your TLC with every meal was a highlight; great food and so
special. Bob, your enthusiastic willingness to share so much
knowledge of the history of this place plus your commitment to the
"good life" that this environment represents are the heart and soul of
this lodge. And to Mike for such patience and help in our daily
fishing - thanks so much to each of you. We loved every minute-and
I'll really try to nymph fish occasionally!
With many thanks for the great fishing, wonderful food, amazing
instructions and kind companionship. But most important - and

with an unforgettable memory . . . actually many, many memories.
Happy trails to you.
