You should think of getting off the beaten path. Try going up thru the Yaak valley. Follow Hwy 2 from Spokane tell a little after you enter Montana. Then take Yaak valley Libby dam road. NF92. Then South onto South fork road. NF68. That will put you in Libby. Long way around but really nice.
I'll have to let Darce know you were impressed with the tackle vending machine: He also installed a little camera to catch the expressions of the people who see it for the first time, so you're probably on Youtube now!
Alex, likely caught on camera drooling over the three large streamer pack that signals meaty snack for the big boys. Machine had a nice selection of flies for various fisheries and essentials. Well done to Darc.
From Grand Coulee Dam WA to Troy MT via Spokane. Amazing country.
Scablands, coulees, farmlands, rivers, falls, lakes, foothills, mountains and cool little towns we are not even to the destination yet and the adventure has been totally worth it.
Arrive in West Glacier this afternoon. Stopped by Arens Fly Shop in Columbia Falls for some recommendations in the park. Bob was quick to suggest a few hikes and flies for some good chances. His dad Bob was cool too! Nice shop with a lot of great things for the angler/outdoor enthusiast. Thanks to Builder for the suggestion! I owe you big time!
