Stalking trout with dry flies. Floating, wading, and camping along the rivers. Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Winter trips to Mexico.

Green Drakes 1260-1370 cfs.

Its not too hot here yet, the weather that is.  Drakes are popping every morning.  The fish are on them.  They only hatch once a year, unlike more common baetis and pmds.  The hatch is short with the bright sunny mornings.  I just can't leave though.  I tried a little, driving north today, but turned right back around for another morning.  Why leave the center of the western fly fishing universe?

These are fun, and visible, and pretty

Gulls and Drakes go together, unfortunately

Glass is sweet, like my 1970's Fenwick with the old Martin.

The ole log jam flat usually has risers

Fishing's good here, right by the truck and trailer

Evening bite wasn't working, but still nice out.

A little weekend spin up to Henry's and the Beav. (500 cfs Henrys, 183 cfs Beav.)

 Henry's Fork was low, clear, weed-free, and had some Mahogany Duns around.

             Beaverhead was perfect, with no weeds, lots of wind, and no hatches.
