I had brought both my 5 weight and my new 8-weight switch rod, just to play with. For some reason, I decided to leave the 5 weight with the floating line in the truck and swing streamers and emergers with the switcher and sink-tip - a regrettable decision. I hooked a few, but didn't land any. It could've been good, but for my questionable choice.
Anyhow, the river's about doubled since Friday, and I think it's safe to say it'll be awhile. But for a few brief hours in 2011, the Mother's Day caddis hatch was on on the Yellowstone.
