Speaking of carving workshops, I have had quite a bit of interest in some specific areas of fish carving and have decided to schedule a few new workshops this early fall at my own studio outside Billings. Please take a look at the Carving Classes page and see if there might be something that interests you. The September and October months are a great time to visit Montana. The weather has cooled off, the bugs are gone and the tourist crowds of summer are all back home with their kids in school. By the 2nd week of September the aspens are turning brilliant yellow in "the park" (and all of the high country) and a big highlight for me is the big bull elk are tuned up and bugling. Also, by September, it`s still t-shirt weather during the day, the nights are cool, all the rivers are running low and crystal clear and the trout really turn up their feeding to get fattened up for the long winter. Browns are my favorite trout and this is the best time of year to catch a colored up, extended kype, spawning male Brown Trout. It just doesn`t get any better than that.
If you have ever considered spending a little time with me, either one-on-one (the summer still has some dates available) or in a group class, now might be the time to give me a call. (406) 656- 9151. My wife Rika and I, extend an open invitation to come spend some time with us. Have a great summer and fall and don`t let yourself get too busy to get out and collect some reference!
