Mostly, because I was raised in a farming family, I like the seasonal or yearly cycle in my life. There are: preparation periods, busy time, long days, short days, transitional period, slow days, and harsh times (such as Montana winter!). Luckily I'm seasonally involved in agriculture, then I guide through summer (well, my outfitting operation is open year around), and tie and sell flies as a commercial tyer through winter to spring. For me, that's my version of Montana life.
