What do you get when you combine Montana fly fishing, mountain golf, and local whiskey? One heck of a good time! This season’s Moonlight Club Member Cast & Blast tournament was just that. A one day fly fishing and golf tournament, the Cast & Blast is a fun, low key event for members, friends, and family. Competitors met at dawn at the Moonlight Basin Jack Creek Road gate to carpool to the beautiful town of Ennis, Montana, and the world class fly fishing waters of the Madison River. Each team joined their chosen pro fishing guide, and spent the morning discovering local fishing holes and casting away with old and new friends alike. Favorite fishing holes were replaced by watering holes as the teams met for a delicious local lunch and whiskey tasting at Willie’s Distillery in Ennis. Afterwards competitors rallied back to Moonlight Basin to tee it up for 9 holes at the RESERVE Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Wrapping up a spectacular day of dry flies and birdies, everyone gathered near hole 10 for the awards dinner and shared stories from the day’s adventure. Here are a few photos of the day’s highlights. Special thanks to Montana Trout Stalkers, Willie’s Distillery, and Gourmet Gals for pulling out all the stops!
