Fishing the Bitterroot in early April with Doc Bolton

Doc was at his Montana home on the Bitterroot for a few weeks in April. Of course he was fishing with friends, on his own and with Jack. I guess Jack is also a friend - but a friend that fishes for a living. Sadly, Doc's and our good friend and favorite fishing buddy, Terry Nobles, isn't able to fish any more. At 90 years old, it just doesn't work for him now. But we visit him with photos and river stories.

Anyway, here are some photos of the Bitterroot and Doc. The first two are from this spring. The second two are from 2009 when Terry fished with Doc and Jack.

  1. That looks like an awesome boat! Put up some pics of your setup...

  2. O.K. Jeff, I will look through our photos and maybe take some new ones. Jack has two boats, a Koffler drift boat a Wing raft. I will see what I can find.
