We have been technology challenged so here an update since the last post.
Sunday morning found us still in Ketchum,with Pam,up early for a big breakfast at Perry's,then off for a flyfishing float tube trip down Silver Creek.
Which produced 4 nice rainbow trout for Ros.
Then after chocolate,coconut flakes and coffee to warm us we drove a few hours down to Hiese where we were to take a float trip down the South Fork of the Snake.
A float trip is where the guide rows and 2 people fish in quite a large fast moving river.To give you an idea we did 2 x 26 mile floats in 2 days.
Sharon has been a float trip guide for 11 years,it was amazing experience.Ros has been flyfishing for 2 years and is pretty darned good.
This trip saw me get a flyrod and on my 3rd day I was doing a float trip!
One can get in a lot of casts in 20 hours on the river.
Sharon's skills even extended to gourmet food perpetration !
This is a photo of a nice brown trout I caught,which was nice.Things were too hectic to take much photos when we caught fish,as the goal is to release as quickly as possible,but we did catch a quite a few and have a lot of fun.
There were lots of wildlife. This Black Bear though was a rare sighting,Sharon had never seen one on the Snake in 22 years of fishing there.
We are now staying with Mark and Linda in Rexburg,more news soon.
