One final trip to the Blackfoot River

On Friday, I made one last trip to the Blackfoot River before winter sets in. If was a pretty slow day for the most part and the bigger fish were absent from my line. I did catch one 19" cutthroat and 5 more in the 12" range. My dad caught 10 - one bigger than 14". The water was icy cold which may have made the fish a little lethargic but it was an average day according to the moon phase calendar so 16 fish wasn't too bad.

Fly of the day: Size 12 bead head prince nymph. Nothing else worked.

Hey! I just found your blog this morning in a round about way. I'm a fisher woman wannabe living in North Idaho. I've found someone to teach me to fly fish in June. I'm very excited to learn. Now that spring is here, I bet you will be blogging again soon, so I think I'll stick around. Maybe I will pick up some tips!
