My friend Tim Savard had a long career as a photojournalist before he and his wife Lisa (with whom I went to middle school) built Lopstick Lodge into a first-rate fly-fishing destination on New Hampshire’s Upper Connecticut River. They sold the business last year and moved to Montana’s Rock Creek Valley, southeast of Missoula, full time.
Although they checked out of the day-to-day life of running a lodge, they’ve kept a hand in the business through their new venture, Savard Hospitality Consulting, in which they share their knowledge of what it takes to run a successful fly-fishing business. As part of this new gig, Tim has started taking tons of photos again, and they reflect a love of the Montana landscape and an eye for composition that should make any fly fisher sit up and take notice. After seeing these images regularly on his Facebook page, I asked Tim if I could share some with you, and he graciously agreed.
