Getting skunked. It happens. But it’s not about catching fish, right? It’s about wading through a beautiful trout stream. The stillness of being alone with your own thoughts in nature. The rhythms of casting and mending line. Spending time with the people you care about. Are these not the special reasons we go fly fishing? Sure they are… but I still want to catch fish.
I rowed most of the day while they fished. The Bighorn River is easy to float in a drift boat and there are many good places to stop and wade.
Welcome to Wadeoutthere. I believe there are two paths ahead of us in the pursuit of fly fishing.
