Clark Smyth, The Cicada & Mr. Salmo Trutta

It’s been awhile for sure, missed the March Merkin update, another stellar trip to Playa Blanca, the Big Bugs on the Henry’s and some Head Hunting on the MO, but livein the now I guess……..

Had a chance to meet up Clark Smyth of Rock Creek Anglers a couple of weeks ago for some big dry fishing in Wyoming.  Clark had a winter filled with medical surprises so it was nice to spend some time together and watch some big browns eat some big dries!!  The Wind River Canyon is a special place to float and while I have endured my fair share of punishment I have also seen some very,  very,  special days.

While we had some good expectations for the day, the fishing exceeded  them and the variety of takes were truly amazing.  From the drop back tip up just whites of the mouth, to the full blown bowling ball dropped off a cliff takes, the day was truly an amazing visual experience.

This fish chose to go with the bowling ball take

This one just dropped the tail


This one ate like he forgot something and went to get it

Special day!!
