I turn 40 next July and have begun the process of planning a fly-fishing trip from my bucket-list of destinations. I have two very different plans in mind depending on finances (Kamchatka/Alaska/New Zealand/Patagonia are not viable options...I'll keep dreaming). Option #1 - Tarpon in Boca Grande, Florida. I have family in the area, so accommodations would be free and I could shop at the grocery store and cook for myself. Besides the flight to Fort Myers and the purchase of a guided trip, I think this is perhaps the most cost-effective option. Option #2 - Trout bonanza in MT, WY, and ID. I've always wanted to fish the Rockies and to be surrounded by mountain vistas (especially the Tetons) while hooking into rainbows, browns, and cutthroats. I've gone through two books (i.e., Fifty places to fly fish before you die, and fifty MORE places...) and have narrowed down a trip to include one or more (perhaps up to three?) of the following locations: i) Henry's Fork; ii) Middle Fork of the Salmon River; iii) Bighorn River; iv) Madison River; v) South Fork of the Snake River; vi) Big Hole River. I'd like your input on my choices for Option #2. Are there rivers that I should have included here that are not listed? If you could choose three rivers from option #2 what would they be and why? Have I listed any rivers on your own bucket list? If I pursue option #2 (I'm strongly leaning that way as I can pursue Option #1 some other time) I would drive and could camp the entire time. I am flexible on timing of the trip, but July-August would probably be best to encounter the best hatches at altitude. Any thoughts are welcome, and thanks for your advice.
