It was definitely a summer of remembrance. Working at the Trout Shop gave me the opportunity to explore, and most importantly, fish everyday. I had plenty of adventures this summer but also worked a lot. I learned so much about the process of a fly shop, interacting with clients, and helping those clients to have the best fly fishing experience possible.
Working in Craig specifically gave me a whole different view on the small town. The entire existence of the town all comes back to the sport that keeps it alive. With three fly shops, a restaurant, and lodging, Craig Montana is considered to some to be a small fly fishing oasis. But what I realized about Craig was that it's not the shops that make it such an oasis... it's the generous people.
I would like to thank Chris Goodman, Jerry Lappier, Mike Bushly, Karen Lappier, and Lily Goodman for the great experience I had this summer working at The Trout Shop. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I've had in my life.
Goodbye to the Mo
