Wow where do I start. Immediately upon arrival I was warmly greeted by Kaitlin. She gave me a tour of the facility and showed me to my room which had a wonderful of view of the channels section of the Madison. The view also include the amazing surrounding mountain ranges with their pristine snow caps. Kaitlin invited me to fish in the stocked pond on site, and i graciously accepted being that i had not picked up a fly rod in 25 years and was anxious to shake off the rust. It was wonderful fishing in the pond as i caught several very nice rainbows. I enjoyed fishing in the pond each night after dinner. The food and service was impeccable at the lodge. Matt served some amazing dishes with tasty appetizers and desserts. The selection of wine was outstanding as well. My room was large and very nicely appointed. And as I mentioned, it had a wonderful view of the river. Manu saw us off each morning for our angling experience and helped serve a wonderful breakfast. Manu was very attentive and accommodating. My guide Gunner was outstanding. I had not been fly fishing in many years, and he was very helpful. He took care of all of the logistics, and all i needed to do was get my fly in the water. We caught many nice fish on the Madison including a cutthroat and a 22 inch brown trout! A great river. I traveled solo for the trip, but I have to say the staff made me feel at home the moment I arrived. Thank you Kaitlin, Manu, and all of the MVR staff for an amazing time. Simply outstanding. If you are thinking about making the trip, quit thinking and just do it. You will not be disappointed.
