Stuck in the Shop

It's supposed to get nasty this weekend...typical for a holiday. Rick and I are trying to get some relief this afternoon so that we can get out on the Lower. Salmonflies should be getting close to starting over there so nymphing near the banks should be good right now. The river is very high, but that's ok. It's mid-70's and beuatiful out!

The wife, kid, and I are heading to the Henry's Fork tomorrow night. Salmonflies have been over there for a week and a half now and with the opening in the upper reaches, things could be pretty good. It usually sucks, but the lure of biggies on dries always seems to make me lose my sense of logic. We stay at a really cool place near Island Park calles Elk Creek Ranch, so that will be worth the trip if nothing else. A bunch of really old cabins with a nice veiw of a small lake. Hopefully the weather isn't too bad bacause Alex can lose his cool pretty quickly, but he's getting better. Maybe a few fish on dries will get hime jacked up too.
