Yellow Breeches in PA and Fly Fishing Friends

Yellow Breeches in PA Our friend, Jim, sends us photos from time to time. He and his buddies love to fish.

They often fly fish the Yellow Breeches, a tributary of the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania. The first photo was taken in mid-April and here is Jim's message.

Dave Boomer and John Mikita on the Yellow Breeches yesterday. The water was a little high and cloudy.
I caught 2 brown trout, 13 inches and 10 inches. Both on size 16 Hendrickson dry fly.
I think Dave caught the fish he is playing in the picture on a Hendrickson.
I did not get a picture of Larry Clement who did the best. He caught 5 trout on a variety of flies including a white wooly bugger.
We all had a fun time. The weather was beautiful.

Larry on Yellow Breeches The middle photo is Larry on the Yellow Breeches in early May. He caught plenty of fish that day, too, I hear.

By the way, happy tenth birthday to your beloved dog, Tres.

Jim sent us the bottom photo and within it, in the photo on the bookcase, is Jim fishing the Bitterroot River in Montana. Here is the message he sent with it.

Does this dog have a hard life or what!

TresPS: Merle and Jack, if you zoom in on the leftmost picture on my book case you will see a picture Jack took of me and an 18 inch cutthroat that I caught on the Bitterroot. Great guide!

Keep sending us your fishing photos! We love hearing from you all.
