Like just about every September, I have been diverted from fly fishing during a great fly fishing month to pursue the rocky mountain elk across the headwaters of the Blackfoot River. Since the rut had not started, the hunting was subpar, although I did see 10 cows/calves the two days I spent hunting. I did take a little diversion to test one of the small streams for fish - I snagged a hopper and threw it into a fish worthy hole - alas I did not see any activity and lost sight of the hopper quicker than I hoped. It was a beautiful weekend and I look forward to more September days in the woods and streams. Good luck with the fishing.
