Now I have caught many fish in my lifetime. From eastern small stream trout to Florida largemouth to Canadian smallies to Idahoan cutthroat to Alaskan kings and humpies; boy have I caught some lunkers! Everyone loves to catch fish. Factually, many fishers will get very PO'd if they don't catch large fish in large numbers while on a $575 float in Fernie, BC. I say hog wash.
When you go fishing, go to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and camaraderie of your partner. Enjoy your float or wade, drink a beer, have a sandwich or two and sit back and just take in the smells and beauty. Now days, although not a professional guide, I will most frequently row while my raftmate fishes. I get a huge thrill from just putting him/her onto the fish. Again, we never keep them.

Enough philosophy for now. Back to simply good Idaho fly fishing posts. Come back often and remember our wishes to you all: Hard takes, tight lines, bent rods, sore arms, huge fish and beautiful floats/wades forever.
