Clinch in the snow at 37 degrees with snow!!
Spoke with Mike Bone 3 weeks ago and had today set, rain or shine to fish not knowing it would be 37 degrees, 20 mph winds and snow,……. but a date with this guide was a date!!!
I have fished with a few guides in the area and need everyone that reads this post ………to know, he is one of the BEST!!!
I caught my largest trout ever on this river without him, but after today that statement is relative because of not fishing with him more often.
I attempted 3 times prior to this trip to get a guide trip in his boat with always the answer…I' m full, but got a guy with another boat available. I held out till today and Mikes availability.(It's was worth the wait).
We caught many fish today in the worst of conditions. The temps., the wind at 15 mph and blowing at his back while I needed him to keep me at a decent drift., the snow etc..
This guide had a smile on his face and tied double nymph rigs like it was sunny and 90 degrees out!!!!
No need to get a flight to Montana or Idaho with a guy like this in my backyard!!!
Mike, if you read this… I know we only fished a few hrs. because I lost feeling of my fingers………but I sure look forward to fishing with you in the future.
Thank you Mike ,…….. for bringing your "A" game.
