Default The last best place

Leaving home at 4AM--Will leave Lex at 6:30AM arrive in Billings Montana at about 12:30 their time--Got a rental car(tried to get a Hertz Shelby Mustang)--No dice--think I have a minivan which is OK--Going to fish the Bighorn(with a guide)--Then onward to West Yellowstone for a night or two--West Yellowstone is a great place--So close to the park ,you can smell the the water of the Madison.I am in awe of the waters that flow in Yellowstone Park.Lamar River,Soda Butte,The Yellowstone,and the awesome,easy casting,beautiful Firehole,it flows full of steam,making the air full of sulfur smell.It reallly can get to you,and you catch fish.I will end up in Jackson Hole.The Grand Tetons are still there,I think,so I will fish Pacific Creek(a great trout stream),Cottonwood Creek(another good stream,if it is open for fishing)and The Gros Ventre(grow-vont)River,a great stream--Will see if Flat Creek is open for folks over 50--I think it is dry fly only.Will take 9 days--then back to my regular life-- once you have traveled to Yellowstone,the Grand Tetons,Montana,Wyoming,and the Smokies,places,so close to religon,you have a Deja-Vous feeling when you are there,then you understand how good and fleeting life is,and the fishing is
