I spent the past week fishing with my friend Kurt. Kurt and I
grew up together and spent lots of time fly fishing the streams
and rivers of central PA while in college. Every year we try to get
together to fish (usually Kurt comes out here once my guiding
season slows). We fished hard for 6 days straight and shared some
good times on various waters here in the greater Yellowstone
region. Rather than give a play by play, I’ll let the pictures speak
Kurt shows off a nice rainbow from the Bighorn. Fishing
was fun, but challenging as fish were sipping tiny spinners all day
Kurt works a rugged piece of water in the greater
yellowstone region; cutthroat, whitefish and brook trout all were
caught during our day.

warm October sun.
a nice October cutthroat trout.
Kurt shadow-casting (ok, high-stick nymphing) on the
Henry’s Fork. High-sticking with black stonefly nymphs was the key
to too many rainbows to count.’
Doesn’t get much better than this… This big brown
couldn’t refuse Kurt’s dead-drifted nymph.
Looks like this week will be my last week of guiding for the
season (unless someone else lines a trip up). I’m excited to take
out a long time return client of mine for a few fun days on the
water. More to come on that…
