Year in Pictures

The year 2010 offered plenty of fishing. Below is a slice of the pie, in pictures.
January: Yankee Jim Canyon on the Yellowstone River.

February: Montana steelhead.

March: A windy night on the lower Madison. Fishing was good though (for almost everyone).

April: Skwalas were everywhere this spring. This one is ready to spread her seed.

 May: As the ice peels back on Hebgen Lake, the trout get hungry. Clay is pulling in another slab.

June: Trout Lake, Yellowstone National Park. No fishing in the inlet.

July: Big stoneflies in Yankee Jim result in many cutts brought to hand.

August: Accentrella hatch on the Clark Fork. There was also some crazy flying-ant hatch that day that got the trout excited.

 September: Charting lower Sixteenmile Creek. Beautiful area, but few and small fish.

October: Streamer day on the East. They still wanted the buggy Hare's Ear, though.

November: Upper Madison rainbow. The black Girdle Bug is all you'd ever need up there.

December: Darlington Ditch's S-curves. The section on which you won't get harassed.

Here's to 2011!

These guys must be awesome - they have it pasted on their truck window.

I found this hilarious, so I thought I'd repost it: "Really???" I think they should just get it tattooed on their faces, so nobody misses how sick and epic they are.
