Item # SCL03

One week on the Gallatin River near Bozeman, Montana. Lewis & Clark named this river after the Secretary of the Treasury, who funded their expedition. It is one of three tributaries that make up the source of the Missouri River (the Madison River and the Jefferson River are the others) and has a photogenic canyon section that became the main filming location for Norman Maclean's & Robert Redford’s A River Runs Through It.
You will receive one week (Saturday at 4pm to the the following Saturday at 11am). Lodging in a modest, clean 3BR home with modern kitchen, workout equipment and great views of the Spanish Peaks. The home sleeps 6 flyfishers, of which 4 ought to know each other quite well (2 queen beds, 1 bunk). There is also a fold-out sofa for overflow. No pets or smoking allowed in the home.
With proprietary access to the Gallatin (a mere hundred yards from the front porch), whose length you can fish within high-water marks, the property is also a short drive from the Lower Madison River, below Bear Trap Canyon and the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley. Also easily accessible are the famous Paradise Valley Spring Creeks, the Boulder, Shields and Jefferson Rivers and numerous other small streams and lakes. It is also within a day trip to the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Ruby and Smith Rivers.
Additionally, you are a mere 30 minutes from Gallatin Field serving Bozeman with commercial flights from several major airlines. Bozeman hosts great restaurants, galleries and shopping. The Museum of the Rockies (think Dinosaurs) and Montana State University. It is also the home of Simms Waders, Gibson Guitars and lots of fly shops. We recommend the Bozeman Angler on Main Street or The River’s Edge near 4 Corners. The property is also only 78 breathtaking miles from the Northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, and about 45 minutes from the skiing resort at Big Sky.
In the summer, visitors can raft the Gallatin, fish, swim and hike. The winter is all about staying warm and skiing. Fall and Spring (if you avoid the run-off) are the best times for fishing.
This donation is dedicated to the joy the donor expressed he has experienced using Mike Clark’s cane rods, A.K. Best’s flies and John Gierach’s books, which influenced the donor and are now inspiring his 11-year old son.
$500 refundable deposit directly to the owner at booking is required to ensure the integrity of the property. Owners will work with the winning bidder to find a mutually-acceptable time window for this trip. We also request fisherman practice catch-and –release.

Jeff Hatton’s "The Wood Duck in the Marsh" was made to commemorate the 2015 CCC.
This piece is colored scrimshaw done on the butt section of the hollow of the tusk of a Mammoth/Mastodon. The appearance of the intertwined fibers of the base of the tusk with the thousands of years of patina (10,000 to 50,000 years old) has given it the golden glow of a marsh at dusk making the perfect palette for this piece. The color in the Wood duck is achieved with ink and watercolor. Mammoth/Mastodon is one of the few ivories that have no CITES restrictions. The base and post are recycled ebony piano keys with rare earth magnets.

Minimum Bid: $150.00 Minimum Bid Increase: $5.00

Thank You from South Creek

Thank You from South Creek

The March 24th Fly Fishing Film tour and auction was a huge success. We could not have been more pleased and it would not have happened without the help of all that donated items, bidders that helped items sell, and buyers that purchased goods, tickets for the show and raffle tickets. Everyone had a fantastic evening and your efforts paid off with the entire event raising more than $19000.00 for the St Vrain Restoration Project. Also, this wouldn't have been successful without the help from the folks at The Laughing Grizzly Fly Shop, F3T that donated the film and Oskar Blues for donating the venue. Many also donated cash to the cause and again we want to thank each and every one of you.

We are forever grateful

Mike, Kathy and Scott
