Fly fishing the Bitterroot on a cold day in May

Jack took me, Merle, fishing the other day. When we have time, we try to get out and fish together. I don't row the boat except in slower pike water -- there are too many hazards and I am just not skilled enough yet. So, when Jack fishes, we pull over and wade fish. On this day, we had plenty of opportunities, plenty of hatches, plenty of fish and maybe a little too much "W" (wind). At the end of the day, we were really glad we braved the cold temperatures and fished the beautiful middle Bitterroot. After all, it is our "backyard."

See the slideshow for more photos.
