|Looking down into Freemont Canyon - sightseeing, not fishing this time.|

|This marabou streamer was the fly to have.|
I don't fish streamers much but I found two white marabou leech/streamer patterns in my box - I showed them to Jeff and told him they'd be perfect. The problem was how to get over to the fish - they were across a wide channel and completely unreachable from where we were. Jeff said he thought we could wade halfway across the river to a rocky island from the far side and then work upstream from there. I didn't believe it was going to be possible. I was ready to try fishing somewhere else. But we tried his plan and it worked perfectly. In fact the wading was not bad at all.
|My largest fish of the day - a twenty inch rainbow.|
