Yellowstone Firehole Fish Parked at Bank

We watched these guys and gals sipping stuff in about 8″ of water for 10 minutes. Must have been midges – we saw nothing.

Sauntered back to the car, changed cameras, and rigged up. Returned and took one on a size 20, (all used up and ragged,) Hare’s Ear: well greased and floated. Didn’t get our sneakers or fanny wet. Returned to car and watched the wet fanny’s for a time.

Most fishers were up to their fanny in the Firehole River yesterday. We suspect that it’s cooler that way, but that’s where the fish like it too. Hmmm..
