Okay, so the only brown we caught on the Beaverhead wasn’t big at all, it was a teeny little guy, but we did have two days of primus prime primo dry fly fishing on the Beaverhead catching several nice rainbows.
I caught this fish on a trico right out of the gate.
The Professor answered immediately with this bank feeder he caught on a double-wing trico pattern.
What to do when you reach the takeout before they’ve shuttled the truck? Impromptu cheese & cracker picnic.
Driving home from Dillon…
Our second day on the Beav we put in at the dam with its scrappy ramp.
We saw rising fish all day long which was great fun.
I tried and tried on this pod but couldn’t get one. Here I am starting to get chilly and hungry and wanting to find a fish that was a little hungrier for what I was serving up.
We did find a catch a few more fish, all in all two great days fishing. And for the record we did see a very big, big brown beaver on the Beaverhead. But since I didn’t take a picture of the actual beaver, I will leave you with some video of Cross Canadian Ragweed covering “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver”. I know Les Claypool is an avid fly fisherman but the Professor and I saw Cody Canada cover this Primus song a few years ago in New Braunfels and I just feel like seeing some Cross Canadian live…since it seems that won’t be happening for awhile.
