Selway Fly Fishing

Selway Fly Fishing

 

Yesterday there was a break in the rainy Bitterroot Valley weather. We awoke to sunny blue skies and slightly warmer temperatures. It was the perfect day to fly back to Moose Creek, ID to go for a short hike and try our hand at Fly Fishing on the Selway River.

The fishing was pretty good in the end. Nice small Brook Trout, all caught on stimulaters. We packed a lunch and the pup, Meeker, ran around enjoying the river and everything else she could get her mouth on.  It is a pretty neat feeling to know that we where the only people around for miles, getting to enjoy the Selway Wilderness all to ourselves.

Here are some pic’s from our fun adventure!!!

Saddling Up

Saddling Up

Last week I traveled down to Salmon Idaho to visit with some friends and snapped some pics of Richie Outfitters Getting there stock all ready for the 2015 Spring Hunting Season.

So naturally this week, we headed down to the opposite side of Idaho to help Richie Outfitters get there Stock loaded up and Saddled Up and on there way out to Moose Creek, along the Selway River.  The first night we camped over night, sleeping out under the stars; while the Stocked roamed free eating up grass and enjoying some freedom.  That next morning I snapped some pics and said good bye to the Pack string as they started their 10 hour journey up the Selway River.

Here are some pics. Shot on a Pentax 645z and 35mm f3.5 lens with a Pentax 645 FA 80-160mm f4 lens as well.

The Pentax 645 A 35mm 3.5 lens is manual focus, thus a bit harder to hit your mark when trying to capture a moment, but I find if I have Live View on then I can use focus peaking to hit my mark and it really makes life a lot easier when trying to manual focus.

Richie Outfitters Spa Day

Richie Outfitters Spa Day

It was that time of year again. Time for the Richie Camp to start getting some of their stock ready. A day of Shoeing, Hair Cuts and Nail Filing. The Horses and Mules looked pretty sharp by the end of their Spa Day.

On another note, I have decided that being a horse farrier is a whole lotta work! Huge respect for them!

These images where taken with a Nikon D600 and a Pentax 645z, Sigma 35mm 1.4 art, Sigma 50mm 1.4 art, Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 and Pentax 645 35mm 3.5 Lens.
