Is It Still Winter?

I, YellowStoneFly, stepped outside the other day and saw my shadow and said to myself, "damn it's still cold." Contrary, a good friend of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog stopped me in the hall and showed to me a photo of a 6-7 pound rainbow he had just caught on Washington's upper Columbia River.

It is simply too darn cold and snowy for me for sure - beautiful but cold. Some seasonal photos are pictured here. Click on to enlarge. Enjoy.

Come a fly fish Idaho soon. That is after snow melt and the water recedes.

Tight lines then hard takes then palpitations. Don't forget the photograph. Practice "Catch n' Release".
