I’m sad to report that Sage, my constant K9 companion passed on last Friday. Many of you came to know Sage over the years, and while she didn’t join me on every guided trip, she did tag along a lot when folks invited her. She was happy helping guests, from friends to celebrities, find trout to cast to. Over the years, she spent more time on cold trout waters than most humans. In addition to Wyoming waters, Sage fished with us in ID, MT, UT and CO. She also cruised the country, coming face to face with alligators in Florida, buffalo and moose in Wyoming and sea lions in California. Despite turning 15 this past September, Sage continued to fish with Jamie and I through the fall and demanded daily walks until the end. In the end, she lived 15 years 4 months, a hell of a feat for any dog. Things are lonely round here at the Bennett/ Teton Fly Fishing household.
