Monte another great trip.Why didn't we see you in kilts?

The Celtic games looked like a lot of friendly fun.

 

Your fish catch this trip was way about other times.

Those cuts sure are beautiful.

 

Thanks for taking the time to let us ride along.

i see in part 3, that you returned to the imnaha river.  i am pretty sure i can guess what you ended up catching !   and if so, great for you!  i was thinking of going back that way, but opted for different stream.  i now see that the upper imnaha canyon has a pretty good fire near it... ugh.

I'm pretty sure I know where/what lake you were at and glad you had a great time!  Looks like you missed all the smoke we are having now :-(

 

I've been meaning to get to the Imnaha to chase some bull trout.  I'd be curious to know how the drive in is and how far up you went?  Oh, I see the report now...

Very nice report, that area of Idaho (emanating from the White Clouds) is my favorite in the entire world.  The lakes are so pretty and you can see for miles.  Might help that I started my career in forestry there...

 

Did you ever solve the flower mystery? It does appear to be a marsh felwort based on my limited ID - 5 petals in that area doesn't leave a lot to choose from, although I couldn't see the leaf arrangement.

Now you know why the Teds show up in many of the Ski3pins reports. And often we do follow in their footsteps if we aren't with them. They have taught us so much, shown us incredible sights, and they are just darn good company.

In addition to having had an epic two days of fly fishing, you have written an epic trip report.  Thanks SO MUCH for the efforts to present it. 

 

It brings good memories of epic catch and release days fishing for 28-40" rockfish (aka striped bass) in Chesapeake Bay from around 1995-2007 when the  rockfishing was HOT.

Man they are some awesome fish. What a way to end your trip.

Thanks for the 4 part trip.Another great voyage.

 

I fished Bowman Lk. in Glacier NP for Bull Trout. No luck though.

Great to see the ones you caught.
