This is the blog of The Osprey: conservation journal of wild salmonids. We believe the first step towards conservation and recovery of our anadromous fish is an informed community of advocates. Through our publication The Osprey, our Website and this blog we hope to share relevant news regarding the management, science and politics surrounding steelhead and salmon in the Pacific Northwest.
The Osprey newsletter is the Federation of Fly Fisher's acclaimed steelhead conservation newsletter.
During our recent trip to Dillon, we had the pleasure of sharing a bite to eat, a few drinks, and some good banter with Ryan. As it turns out, that would be Ryan's last visit to Dillon's popular watering hole - The Lion's Den.
Ryan was a well known Southwestern MT guide and contributor to many of our brethren sites. He made an impact on many he knew. We were no exception.
More background and an opportunity to contribute to the Reichle family can be found here on the Drake.
