This made Mike's day. 07/07/2011
Big Hole River 4920 cfs
The river seems to get better and better fishing with each day. In the last four days we have managed to boat several large fish and best of all, on top water flies.
Today again it was with golden stone patterns, size 8 and 10.
Just before Jay got that fish he had another big fish hit his fly and he did the two handed bass set that would have snapped butt section line. I told him, just a little easier on the set next time. It wasn’t more than 10 minutes and he struck this one and did a perfect job. A short time later his buddy Mike got another big one. That is the biggest brown Jay has ever caught and I’m sure his adrenaline is still pumping. That broad smile tells it all.
Forecast for tomorrow is a bit cooler and quite windy so leave the 4wt at home.
