    The Big Honker small.jpg On the 24th three friends and I went with guides for a trip on the Yakima. We launched just upstream on the Cle Elum just upstream from the Yakima. Before we reached the Yakima I had taken my first trout on a fly. Later in the day I landed what the guide described as the largest Cutthroat that he had seen in years.

    The images inserted in the wrong order.

    We were using nymphs in the morning and dry flies in the afternoon.
