Casting for Trout

A little casting sequence. I love photos with the line in the air. photos by Roberta Boice

My Brown

Here are a few more pics of our South Fork trip. I think about this brown trout everyday. Just about finished with another rod. I am starting to build my first net too. Mostly just researching and getting ideas, and in a few years I want to build a drift boat. I have to save money for that though.

South Fork

I had the chance to go to Idaho this weekend with Cort. We delivered a bamboo rod I built for his brother Shawn, and of course we fished. I would first like to thank our wives for letting us have this time to be boys again. Second I would like to thank all of Cort's Idaho family. They all took such good care of us with meals and a place to sleep and really nice company. And a special thanks to Shawn. Shawn woke up at 5:30 in the morning to row for us as we drifted the South Fork. He has years and years of experience floating rivers. He took us to some really awesome spots, on a pretty dangerous river. Then he took us the rest of the day and all of the next jet boating. We would hit these gravel bars loaded with fish. We all landed lots of fish. Two of my favorite came from the same hole. One is the 19 inch Brown that I landed with my 4wt bamboo rod. I felt really lucky to get him in. He fought like a monster. the second was a nice Cutt, really really colorful. Trip of a lifetime. Hopefully we can get back there again. Thank you so much Shawn and Cort for hooking me up.
