Photos of the Day: Mother-Daughter Day on Montana’s Flathead River

Fly-fishing literature is rife with tales of fathers and sons, but that’s not the only parent-child option. Darwon Stoneman of Glacier Anglers in West Glacier, Montana, sent in these great photos of Jess Sturm and her daughter, Aubrey, having a great time catching westslope cutthroats on the Flathead River.

And speaking of mothers, don’t forget to share the great video of a mother and her daughter fly fishing, which we released last week. Every time you share the video with the hashtag #LongLiveMoms, Orvis will make a $1 donation—up to $10,000—to Casting for Recovery.

Jess instructs Aubrey on the basics of picking up a trout.

What’s better than bonding on the water?

  1. Hi Phil,

    I love seeing the videos of the kids fishing, both girls and boys, with their parents. What drives me nuts is the parent has a pair of sunglasses on but the kids don’t. I’ve fly fished for twenty years and sometimes stuff happens. Every beginning fly fishing class says the same thing, “Where sunglasses, protect your eyes.” Sorry for ranting but a cheap $10-20 pair of sunglasses.


    1. I agree with you, Gary, but what you see in a photo is a moment in time, so we don’t know what happened before. She may have removed her sunglasses for the photo or left them in the boat, etc.

  2. Thanks for the great article! I am the mom in the photo (Jess) and my daughter Aubrey had a great time that day! Every day she gets on the water, she has her sunglasses, but likes to take them off while she’s running around on the shore, because she doesn’t want them to fall off and break 🙂 I think he has a valid point though, sun protection is extremely important! ·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸ > Thanks again!!

  3. I agree with Phils comments- the photos are of some of the most precious moments that any parent or Granparent could ever ask for and the memories of that moment will never be lost. It happens that the mother daughter in the photo are of my Daughter and Grandaughter. My Daughter, a former Guide herself, knows the importance of safety and the hazards involved with the activity, What you do not see in the photo are the really nice pair of Smith sunglasses that my granddaughter wears while on the river and while she has a flyrod in hand. Good job Jess and Aubrey!
