Today's route caused me to pass to and fro through Swan Valley. Knowing that the South Fork was along the path, I decided to take along my trusty 5wt. I thought that if I had any time (which I rarely do) that it would be just as the sun was setting. Lately this part of the day has treated me well. I thought I might get lucky throwing a streamer... that is IF I finished my jobs soon enough.
The planets aligned and I found myself parked alongside the river at 4pm. I didn't get touched on the streamer. I knew fish were there so I reverted to the old habits. Brown rubber legs, a pheasant tail concoction, and a midge were the fallback. Landed one little guy on the pt, a medium sized bow on the rubber legs, and then I had to head out.
Here are a couple shots of the medium guy.
