Snake River view from skiff - Jackson Hole Wyoming

My daughter wanted to go fly-fishing. We hired a guide - Ryan - through High Country Flies in Jackson and spent a delightful day on the Snake River. Ryan gave her some lessons and we were off down the river. Wouldn't you know - on her first cast she caught a beauty - an 18" Snake River fine-speckled cutthroat. I highly recommend the folks at High Country Flies. www.flyfishingjacksonhole.com/

 

This is on the South Fork south of Hoback.

 

One of the classic anecdotes of "catch-and-release" trout fishing: "Do you ever eat these?" "Heavens no, that would be like eating your tennis partner!"

 

I love the Brad Paisley song "I'm gonna miss her" :)

Well I love her

But I love to fish

I spend all day out on this lake

And hell is all I catch

Today she met me at the door

Said I would have to choose

If I hit that fishin' hole today

She'd be packin' all her things

And she'd be gone by noon

 

Well I'm gonna miss her

When I get home

But right now I'm on this lakeshore

And I'm sittin' in the sun

I'm sure it'll hit me

When I walk through that door tonight

That I'm gonna miss her

Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

 

Now there's a chance that if I hurry

I could beg her to stay

But that water's right

And the weather's perfect

No tellin' what I might catch today

 

Yeah, I'm gonna miss her

Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

~Brad Paisley~
