Salmonflies on the Bitterroot!

Dry fly fishing is finally happening. After a long spring and high-water season throwing the big heavies  we can once again break out the dry fly boxes. Do i even remember how to set hooks on tippet lighter than 1x? It is a steep re-learning curve for sure. Steady on the trigger, gosh darnit.

Stumbled into the first pile of these big bugs flying around on Friday. Getting some long drifts down seams was all it took to get these beautiful Cutties to come up. More to come tomorrow? We think so. Once we get a taste, well, decisions become much easier and the gardening suffers. Just the way it is. . .

Oh yea summer time, bring it on!
