And I love to play in the water. Freda going for a swim in the Bitterroot River south of Stevensville, Montana USA. This is Chessie style.

We are fly fishing outfitters and can’t always take Freda with us on the river, but you can see how much she loves it. What Chessie doesn’t. She is such a joy. This is about love, love of nature, the river, pets, and time spent in the beautiful outdoors.
