In Japan, the first Sunrise on the New Year's Day is worshiped as a lucky sign for the brandnew year. I have another "RISE" that I worship and love all the time. That's the rise of Yellowstone Cutthroat in our Greater Yellowstone Country.
Today, I visited the town of Gardiner to see if I can the first rise of Cutty for 2012. Beautiful scenery that I will never get bored to be and to fish around.
Just around 1pm, I started to see some rising trout on midges. As I wished, I could observe and enjoy Cutty's slow & deliberate rise forms one after another on my flies!! This was actually the 2nd Cutty, as I missed a picture for the first one.
Rainbow rose aggressively!!
Today's hot flies. Besides Griffith's Gnat Emerger,
these two skinny silhouette patterns worked very well.
Well, I made sure with my eyes and hands that Yellowstone Cutty are doing well in this winter and ready to rise as we always hope and enjoy.
You know where I'm heading tomorrow then........Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
