It maybe just coincidence but most likely he was here on business for his show coming up, but on Sunday Chase Rice was in Missoula and stopped by one of our local fly shops and got hooked up with a rod. Well we know he will be back to use it.

Chase Rice also enjoys Notorious PIG so I wouldn't be surprised if he stopped in there as he's wearing his hat from his last visit on the picture. He has been here a couple of times in Montana and enjoys hunting/fishing here and enjoying the beautiful outdoors. This time he stopped by the Hackle downtown and chatted about fly fishing and making plans I am sure for his visit in September.

He bought a bamboo rod from what Grizzly Hackle told me. Lucas is pictured with him, and I assume he is happy with his purchase. I didn't ask what brand he bought but I know Lucas knows his stuff. Hope to hear about fly fishing or see pictures on his social media when he returns.
