Floating Up North

My good friend Lynn Scott with BS Flies met up with Jason and I and put us on to some of the water up his way.

Later in the day we met up with Chris Chase and floated some "Northern Waters". Chris and I had talked about fishing for a while and we finally made it happen.

Floating The North Fork

The day was beautiful but with no cloud cover, it made the top water action tough. We spent most of the day throwing large streamers and drifting big stones.

We hooked into a few fish. I think one of the highlights was me ripping into an 8in. "Whitey" on a 8in. streamer. Everyone got a kick out of it. I also managed to pig stick Haslam with a streamer to the back of the head. I was laughing so hard I got caught with my waders down.

We had a great time. I can't wait to get back up north and fish again. Maybe the next time Lynn can stick around and manage to land a few fish before taking off to work ;)

I hope you enjoyed some of the photos. I will be posting some additional items from the Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo in Idaho Falls later.

Looks like a great time. I think while I was at school in Rexburg.....15 years or so ago, I might have fished some of that water!!!

Thanks Mike! We had a great time. Too bad the fishing was not better. We had hoped for cloudy skies ;)
