The time is finally here, Jack and I take off on what could potentially be the best road trip of my life. We are heading out to Idaho Falls to pick up my new drift boat and fish our way back home. We are going to be hopping all over from the Henry's Fork in Idaho, to the Bighorn in Montana, then stopping to visit some friends and do some small stream trout fishing in the Driftless. I kinda gave up my fishing time the past week or so (besides guiding), to spend it with my wife and get things done around the house before I take off. This has however given me a bit more time to tie some flies late at night. Going out west always allows for some abnormal flies that we wouldn't necessarily fish on the east coast, like Salmonflies!!! Take a gander at some of the flies tied for the trip.
Until the rain came, fishing was fantastic. Caddis and Sulphur hatches every day and every evening that had fish up and feeding like crazy. The spring creeks are fishing very well and fish are eating sow bugs, caddis, and sulphurs. Even the smallmouth are starting to eat again, now that they are done spawning.
