Working up a sweat

Attractor dry-fly season has arrived at central Montana's forgotten trout water. Even the whitefish wanted in - I've never seen so many rising whities. Only a Stimmie and a Humpy were used. 



Game notes: Bergan broke his second rod in two weeks on Saturday - this time his dainty 3 weight at the hands of his dog. He will call upon his 4 weight to take its place in the rotation until a new mid-tip section can be ordered and wrapped....The bank sign said 99 degrees on Saturday afternoon....With the three 15-inch brook trout landed this morning, Bergan has caught his biggest cutthroat, rainbow, brown and brook trouts of his life in 2011 - congratulations to him...He was finally able to land a fish using Sweetheart, which was added to the lineup last weekend when Bergan's 8 weight switch rod snapped.

Sweetheart..."long may she wobble"... :)

There isn't anything in the world like a take on a dry. Sounds like a grand day out!

Whoa - think I over-saturated some of those photos? Is that the planet Krypton? Eesh.

Sounds like a great way to spend a hot day. Summer, sweat and trout. Great combo. Nice pics. Tight Lines.
