Trout Eating a Blue Winged Olive

Let me tell you.. it is tough to get a photo of a rising trout just before he takes a natural off the surface. I keep trying, but I've only gotten this event a few times. Sunday on the North Fork of the Tongue, it was close, but no cigar:

I did catch the fish, but the photo eluded me:

He turned out to be a beautiful 18 inch cuttbow who ate my #18 blue dun like a champ. This was after I spent a half hour trying to get a photo of him as he voraciously sucked in naturals in the little back eddie pictured above. 


  1. Ansel Adams sat for days in front of his tripod on cold, wet, windswept granite monoliths in Yosemite to get just the right light for his black and white photos. So buck-up little buckaroo and get back out there behind the lens and wait...and wait...and then wait some more.

  2. We manufacture and export wholesalers flies in business. Its core business is wholesale of fishing flies.
    We import and distribute all types of high quality flies to tackle shops and online shops in wholesale. Our flies include nymphs, dry, wet,saltwater, streamers and salmons at very competitive prices.
    Our manufacturers have been tying flies for more than fifteen years whose flies are tested to international standards before export. Hooks used in tying the flies are Korean brands, with most of the raw materials imported to ensure high quality flies. You can also have your patterns tied to your design by providing pictures.

    Thank you in business
