Orvis was here!

Had four boats on the water Tuesday with people from the various Orvis Endorsed Lodges, and other sports related activities such as dog training, wing shooting, etc.  Two of the boats had never fly fished before people and the one of the other two boats had a couple from a lodge in Alaska where they guided, and one boat with a pair from Montana where they guided.  We had a quick two hours on the water.  Almost everyone boated at least one fish and some several more. 

Wednesday, Stan took Dave Perkins, the Vice Chairman of Orvis on a quick, short outing to give him a look at our abnormally high river.  Dave caught fish on the Primrose & Pearl midge and the Bug-Eyed Bugger using a sink tip.  He was quite amazed we were catching fish in this high water.

Lots of Orvis people were staying at Big Cedar Lodge where they attending the annual Orvis Endorsed Lodge award for 2007.  The award went to Eagle Nest Lodge on the Bighorn River in Hardin, Montana.  This lodge was the first lodge in the world to be dual-endorsed by Orvis for both fly fishing and wing shooting.
