Yellow Madame X

Thanks for the correspondence and photos. Sorry for the delayed response for I was out of the area for a week visiting family. Keep emails and photos coming for our blog. I believe in your last message you mentioned yellow and red Madame X flies and using them as a strike indicator trailing with a #18 Purple Haze? Was this correct and do you cut off the curve and barb? If I remember the Joe above Avery is "single hook, barbless and catch-n-release". Please tell me how you go hookless on the lead fly and tie on a trailer. I would love to know. Photos if possible.

St Joe (Idaho) Anglers,

I made a trip down to the Joe Sunday. A cold front went thru Saturday with heavy rain and wind so I wasn’t sure how the fish would react. Started at the 50 mile marker ( 3 miles up from Avery ) just before 8:00.

St. Joe Cutthroat
Green and tan wooly bugger right out of the gate was the ticket, switched to black and purple later with no hits, went back to green and tan same hole and caught fish. Around lunch switched to dries. Parachute purple haze was  the go to fly. Lots of fish, lots more lost then landed on streamers. River is actually normal flow for this time of year. We haven’t seen normal for a few years)  Fished from 50 mile marker to the 78 mile marker. Too Much Fun!!!!
 
More later,
Dan R.

Hard takes, screaming reels, bent fly rods, huge trout and very sore arms to all. Let's all go Idaho fly fishing soon.
