As a follow-up to last week’s story about three fly fishers being struck by lighting in Montana’s Paradise Valley, Scott McMillion interviews Chip Rizutto, who took the direct hit. “When the cloud appeared overhead, a bolt of lightning struck a ridge a quarter mile away, Himes said. The men started for their vehicle and made it about 300 yards when lightning struck Rizzotto, the tallest of the three at 5’10”.” In the Bozeman Chronicle.
