    Hi friends,

    Mark, that is awesome. I think I recognize some strange characters that you seem to have run into on your trip from a bunch of gallery photos. The Yellowstone photographical report is amazing. Looks like a fun trip. ed

    Awesome report/photos. Thanks for sharing.

    On a couple of occasions, it almost looks like you guys could have used a bigger net... there are worse problems to have:)

    Thanks my friends, appreciate the kind words...

    One of the most memorial moment was fishing the Ranch water on Henry's Fork... the Mahogany/PMD/BWO mixed hatch was going really strong on the last day, but the fish were really finicky since they have seen all kinds of flies during the season. I did get lucky to find a pot of slow rising trout, after change few flies, delivered the tiny captive dun fly and it just happened that she finally made a mis-judgement... : ) I am definitely coming back to the Henry's Fork next year... a really wonderful place to hang out with friends...
