Spotted Bear Fishing 2019
Montana Wounded Warriors hosted a couples fishing trip over the 4th of July weekend 2019 at the Diamond R Guest Ranch on the South Fork of the Flathead River. Mark Boardman and his wife hosted along with Diamond R Guest Ranch owners Bill & Lisa Paulin. Wounded Warriors SGM Ret. Mike McGouldrick & significant other Jackie from Hamilton, Montana along with MAJ Ret. Mac Vosbeck and wife Carol enjoyed an awesome weekend fly-fishing with local fly-fishing guides from the Orvis Spotted Bear Lodge. The Cutthroat trout fishing was absolutely fantastic! The girls who were novice fly fishermen when the trip began were seasoned expert fly fishermen by the time the weekend was over. Jackie & Carol are both hooked on fishing and that’s a good thing since Mike & Mac are very avid fishermen. The couples had a great time floating the river, fishing, enjoying the company of the young experienced guides, and eating Lisa’s wonderful meals at the Diamond R Guest Ranch Dining Room. Let’s just say everyone went home a few extra pounds heavier the meals were so good! The accommodations at the Diamond R Guest Ranch were first class, cute little cabins overlooking the river which made for a very special weekend for the couples. Evenings were spent around a campfire getting to know each other and enjoying the quiet of the Montana wilderness along the river. Fireworks were not missed at all and the weekend was relaxing and pleasant with family and friends. Once again, the Wounded Warriors Mike & Mac very much appreciate everything that Montana Wounded Warriors does for us and our families. Successful fishing, good friends, great food, and to be able to experience the outdoors with those that we love…perfect weekend for all!
