Ally made her first trip to Montana in August, 1998. Her Brother Michael was supposed to go as well, however unforeseen CIRCUMSTANCES prevented that from happening…A friend of mine, whose Father was a retired Superior Court Judge in Billings, MT offered us an opportunity to visit his Ranch. It had been a premier “DUDE” Ranch back in the 30’s and 40’s…I had never been in this part of Montana…

Ally stands at the entrance to Island Lake Ranch…yes, this Ranch had a lake with an island in the middle of it, as well as, 5 ponds filled with TROUT and a pristine stream running through the property…

Coming down the road to the Main Lodge which was used as the living facility for the owner and our dining facility on a daily basis…

This is the LODGE. In front of it is a TROUT pond that was stocked on a regular schedule for the grandkids…worms, crickets and small spinners were on the Menu…

This is “THE BUNKHOUSE” that Ally and I stayed in for 3 1/2 weeks…hated it…

This is the view that Ally and I had…EVERY MORNING…when we woke up from the back porch…

This is what greeted us from the front porch…those are the stables for the horses down below…

The interior of the main LODGE with steps leading up to the dining area…

These two boys, with Ally, are the son’s of my friend Diane whose Dad owned this joint…each of them tried to outdo the other for Ally’s attention…it had already started…

My friend Diane’s cabin clear on the other side of the ranch…long walk for those boys…heh,heh…

Ally and her suitors hanging out in the game section of the LODGE…

A view looking East towards Nye, MT and the Stillwater River…

Another cabin on the ranch…

One more of the small cabins with a pond in front of it where I took some nice Trout on midges…

Ally, at nine, geared up and ready to Fly Fish at MORAINE on the STILLWATER…Hmmmm, where have I seen that VEST before…?

Access sites on the Stillwater River, MT…

Ally’s first Trout on the Stillwater…she ate it…

“Hey Dad, I think you need to use a #20, Yellow Humpy in here on 6x tippet…”

” I ‘ll just wait while you rig up…”

Ally at Buffalo Jump on the Stillwater, note the “My Fish is BIGGER than DAD’s Fish T Shirt…

Ally’s reaction after a 12″ Brookie jumped on a wooly bugger hanging off a bubble and fly combo… dead in the water…

Ally with the “ATTACK BROOKIE” at the Lake with the Island…she ate this one too…

Looking downstream on the Stillwater towards the Bridge at Buffalo Jump…

Ally and PT in the backyard at Montana Hanna’s…gettin’ ready for some PRIMO STEAK….

Ally, swingin’ at sunset…Montana Hanna’s…

Ally, on the side of the road to Red Lodge, MT we had just had a great lunch at The Grizzly Bar and Grill which is down below in Roscoe, MT and were on our way to this place:

The MONTANA CANDY EMPORIUM in Red Lodge ,MT…We make pilgrimages (many) every time we visit Montana…yum, yum….

GRIZZLY BAR and RES ROSCOE MT -1-Grizzly Bar and Grill. Roscoe, MT…MMMmmmm…good eats !!!

Where the hay for the horses comes from…
