Staying Dry!

Welcoming a full week of pure summer bliss lately and to top it all off, I just finished two days of guiding without tying on a wet fly... yes, thats right all dry and we caught hefty trout. Day 1 on Lewis Lake, myself and client, Earl Johnson & son, Earl Johnson found a steady flow of brown drake spinners and duns along several flats of the main lake. The brown trout were all over the bugs yet they were still a bit picky in the clear water and bright sun, the cripples got us the best fish, one over 20". Day 2 with the Johnson's landed us again in Yellowstone this time on the Firehole River hunting even more dry action... it was on! Immediately we were into fish on small PMD imitations and jumped well over 20 nice trout before lunch... after lunch the action slowed and we headed back toward JH, we were all pleased with the trout's cooperation and thought the fishing was wonderful despite all the recent rain and high water. Tight Lines!


  1. Scott, thank you for a fantastic two days of fishing. It doesn't get any better than catching trout on dry flies in beatiful Yellowstone. Son Earl really learned alot from you about reading the stream, proper hook setting, and patience. You are at the top on my list for future trips in the Jackson area!

  2. Scott,

    My absolute favorite time of the year is when my son and I fish with you. There is no better person to fish with than you. Your knowledge of the fish and the surrounding waters is unsurpassed. You have a keen sense of humor and you are a true gentleman. I have fished with many people in your profession over the past 30 years and you are ,without a doubt, the best !

    Here's to 2010 !!
