Hmmmm. Sorry about the image problem. Will look in to that. Yes, the Bitterroot is incredbile. Been a tough year with the fires. Finally got some moisture which laid down the fires. Looking forward to rifle season too. Even won an extra female Muley tag. Never harvested a Rocky Mountain elk or a Muley. Gods country. First year here.

Edit: Pic visable now?

Just learned to fly cast recently. A 17" Cutthroat out of the Bitterroot river. :D

Beautiful Cutty, Dirtclod. I wish we had them here in NY, it’s a fish that is certainly on my bucket list.
Nice to see you recently learned how to fly cast. It’s nowhere near as difficult as people believe it is, and just about any species can be caught on fly tackle. Bass, pike, muskie, trout, panfish, etc. I always have a fly rod with me when I fish should the opportunity present itself, plus it’s nice to have in the arsenal when it seems nothing will get fish to bite. Now, learn how to tie various flies! It’s only as complicated as you want it to be, saves money, and there is no better feeling than when a fish takes a fly that you tied yourself. You’ll always remember that one ;)

Caught some brook trout today. Trout season is over, deer season begins. :P
Since I'm camping and can't hunt tomorrow, we're getting up early tomorrow and going salmon fishing.

Cool to see some fellow fishermen on the forum. Got up super early today... Well didn't really get up, went straight after I did a drive on Fastd's server. Nothing like a bit of a workout after not sleeping
