Fly fishing with Cheryl

Ken took our friend Cheryl fly fishing to a small creek in the Methow with the promise that she would catch her first fish on a fly rod and indeed she did. And she caught her second, third, fourth, and quite a few more, it seemed! Lots of little Brookies and Cutthroats. What fun. I enjoyed the scenery and assisted as needed.

This marks one year since I began My Everyday Photos. I am pleased to have made at least one photo to post each day for the last year. Postings may not be so regular in the future but will continue.

Bushy-tailed Woodrat

Bushy-tailed Woodrat

This description is from Montana Outdoors Portrait: Though commonly known as the pack rat, the bushy-tailed woodrat is actually more closely related to the deer mouse than to what many people think of as a rat—those scaly-tailed residents of big city sewers. This dapper-looking rodent has large round ears, long whiskers, soft buff-gray fur, big onyx eyes, white feet, and a bushy, squirrel-like tail. From nose to tail tip it measures roughly 15 inches.
