A retired fly fishing enthusiast living the summer on the beautiful Swan River in northwest Montana. In addition to caring for our riverfront home, tending our vegetable garden and nurturing our perennials, as a certified fly fishing instructor and fly tier, I enjoy teaching fly casting and all the intricate nuances of the sport. I relish the food of my heritage and am blessed with my wife, Virginia, who as an accomplished chef, teaches cooking, enjoys knitting and painting landscape scenes. I love to float the 5 miles from Swan Lake to the takeout on our property, catching rainbow trout along the way. Leisure is reading mystery novels. Fly fishing floats, fly casting lessons, river tube floating and other outdoor activities can be easily arranged. I can also supply all fly fishing equipment. Just let me know your desires. The cottage is available from May 1st to October 31st.
