Fly Fishers, Thanks to all those who donated used fly lines. They are going on tip-ups, and soon a bunch of youngsters will (hopefully) be yanking northern pike thru ice holes.
Secondly, thanks Phil Romans for the rubber leg flies. On the Clark Fork yesterday and this nice rainbow is one of the fish that came to net. Phil did the same on a Bitterroot drift yesterday, also.
Drifted downstream about a mile; fished some good slow water a number of times, and rowed back. Shoulders are not in summer shape yet. Temp was 33 when we launched about 1:30 pm and 28 when we returned at 5 pm. The truck heater felt good on the way home. Jim K.
