Today Ted and Linda went out with one of our great Madison River guides, Ian Seacrest. The day was a nice little family float as the dog got to come too:)  Ian was all over it with some previously known knowledge from the days before having been floating with clients almost everyday ALL season. That is why you should go with a guide at least once to get you into the swing of each location as you are visiting. It will almost always throw you right in the loop.                                                                                                                                               IMG_1569SM IMG_1586SM IMG_1581SM IMG_1579SM  Ian had them on the big black size 8 stone and the fish were eating for the nocturnal stone. (or because they just love stone flies) Some other smaller patterns were used and caught fish but the bigger flies simply caught bigger fish. Small caddis and some random PMD and BWO patterns are flying around and will still be working well.                                                                                                                                 IMG_1566SM IMG_1593SM IMG_1590SM IMG_1587SM

Don’t neglect the Hopper as he is out and about with the flying ant too. Terrestrials are always a thing of the August month whether they are flying around or not…they usually eat them. As always, I hope you all are having a wonderful summer and enjoying every minute of it!!! Happy Fishing All!!! -DanG
