2014 – expressing many thanks and indelible memories

The 2014 Guide Season is officially over having my last personal guide days the last week of October. Despite the slow fishing, the radiant fall colors and memories of fast fishing we had through out the year helped ease in the inevitable – winter coming on!

I want to say many words of thanks to all who fished with Wapiti Waters during this glorious season of good flows and good angling. I would also like to mention a couple of anglers who have passed on to the “Happy Fishing
Ground” namely E. Terrill Nobles (Terry Nobles) and Dave Brandt. These two fishermen were the reasons we love guiding. Their attitudes were upbeat whether the fishing was fast or slow and they genuinely loved the waterways and trout environment. Their desires to share this love will always be with us. We will forever miss yet forever remember them.

Another note: We also had the privilege of  fishing with Dave Brandt in Argentina– fantastic time and memories.

Terry Nobles – photos, memories and best wishes

Terry on the Lower Clark Fork October 2005Photo album dedicated to our good friend Terrill (Terry) Nobles, Corvallis, Montana – With out any doubt, Wapiti Waters’ (Jack Mauer) favorite friend, partner, client, and man on earth. This will never change, as sadly there will never be another man like Terry.

Terry is 93 and 1/2 years old this December (2013) and we felt compelled to start an album dedicated to Terry. As I find pictures earlier than 2005, I will scan them and add them. Also dedicated to J Craig Nobles, Lynn Dornfeld, Tori Nobles-Stephens, and Buddy Nobles, Terry’s children.
