Family Fishing Day

We went fishing for the first trip of 2010. Before we left the lodge. the kids had a little snowball fight to start the day. The weather was good, but the fishing was a little slower than we are used to. The water levels were a lot lower than normal. We caught several fish and had a wonderful day. All the kids had a turn reeling in fish and the oldest took on the task of netting the fish. It is a great opportunity to get the kids started with fly fishing and enjoying the outdoors, and best of all, quality family time. When we left the lodge we saw a couple Big Horn Sheep on the way as well as deer and antelope. By the time we started fly fishing, the kids were ready for lunch. We waded upstream a couple miles fly fishing  some really great holes along the way. The morning fly fishing was a little slow, but as the day went on and some bugs started to hatch, the fly fishing got better. As you can tell from the photos, the trout , browns, rainbows, and even a cutthroat ranged from 12 to 20 inches.
