    Recently back from our annual fly fishing pilgrimage out West. This year, we fished 6 rivers in 3 States, and we could not have asked for better weather or more cooperative fish...! Here are a few of the highlights from the trip:

    In Montana, we fished the Blackfoot, the Bitterroot, the Clark Fork, and the Yellowstone. In Idaho, I fished the Lochsa, and in Wyoming we fished the Big Horn. I probably also fished another half-dozen spring creeks all over the place.

    Looks like a great trip, you should've squeezed in another week and chased some elk while you were out that way!

    Mostly any hopper pattern would get smashed... I also got a few afternoons with some tricos and caught a few on tiny dry flies too...

    At the right time hopper fishing is wonderful and it looks like you hit it perfect! I love hopper fishing! It hit some fine rivers that are noted for great fishing.
    It caught a really nice variety of fish! Congratulations! I’m envious and I live out west!

    If you ever come to realize that dream, 3 days is not enough.... You need to fish the Snake River on the Wyoming side, then the South Fork of the Snake from the Idaho (Swan Valley) side. Then, you need to float the Henry's Fork though Box Canyon... The views of the Tetons from the Snake on the Wyoming side are truly breathtaking... It's one of the most beautiful and memorable floats you will ever have. If you can do it in the Fall, even better...

    I really enjoyed your excellent photos!
    I have been fortunate enough to have fished every one of these, but only wading. Float trips are awesome!
