For a number of years it has been my practice during the summer months to head out after dinner and spend a couple hours matching wits with some of our local trout. Since I am blessed to have three world famous spring creeks within 3 miles of my front door and the Yellowstone River within a couple blocks of my back yard I have lots of options. Unfortunately, even though I live in at the backdoor of trout heaven, I still have to ?play the game? and often the opposing team wins.
