Frye Lake - August, 29, 2009

Went fishing up in the Wind Rivers with my fly rod today. Trout were rising much of the morning. Managed to bring 4 to the net, and several others battled it out. Overall, my truly first successful fly fishing adventure.

Rainbow Trout #2
Rainbow #3

Unfortunately, the cuttbow hooked himself in a gill or something, because he was unable to be revived even after 15 minutes of trying. *sigh* So he came home.

Overall it was a good day of fishing. Wife joined me for the afternoon, but didn't get to fish very long because a line of Thunderstorms rolled. All were caught with BWO in either olive or black bodies. They didn't seem to care.
