Bob Orsua was in full cry on September 15, 2010. “That’s a lie!” he told me between deep inhalations as he spoke unofficially for the 100-member Flathead Wildlife Inc. rod-and-gun club and virtually all outfitters, charter skippers and guides who work 122,885-acre Flathead Lake in northwestern Montana.

“Photography is an act of life.” So is the motto of Brian L. Schiele, who creates photographs that have been described as serendipitous, nostalgic, cinematic and dreamlike.

"But such surface feeding is the tip of the iceberg, beacuse most lake and pond midges get eaten beneath the surface, all day long, in a constant barrage that does a lot to fatten stillwater trout, but does little to reduce the midge population."
