February Fishing

I've been sick, skiing, trying to get my bag business going, and organizing for a fundraiser, so my fishing has truly been neglected. I made it out yesterday for the first time in a couple of weeks and it was great!

Though our snowpack has been poor, there was still lots of snow to post hole through, but hearing fish rising as I got close to the river made it worthwhile. There were a reasonable number of black and tan midges out--the most I've seen this year. I threw a Para Wulff and a size 18 red zebra midge and went to town. The fish photo above is definitely the smallest one of the day, heck, the year, but it was awfully pretty.

It was a great day and I 'm hoping to reduce the time between fishing days since we're heading into March.

Mountain Bucking

My buddy Keith just published a hunting story at Outdoorsman's Pursuit. Only in Idaho would you haul an deer out on a mountain bike. Enjoy.

February Fishing

I've been really sick for the past week and a half, but my cabin fever was bad enough that I managed to make myself well enough to hit the river today. We've had a cold week, but this afternoon was warm so I figured the fishing would be good. I was wrong. I had to post-hole, which is normal, but I also had to cast while trying to stand on an ice slab that covered half the river. Even though the fishing was crappy, it was really fabulous to be on the river and to be well.

We're expecting warmer temps through the weekend so I hope to dominate some fish on the Lost next week.

Good luck to the Olympians from Ketchum!

Should Have Been Here

Here's a little clip I found this morning on This Is Fly. I was supposed to be on this trip, but my sister got married instead. Looks like I missed out on some good fishing. Maybe next time.
