Its mid March and Ladin, Steve and friend Larry Hardie are fly fishing on the Big Wood River in Sun Valley in Idaho. There's plenty of snow around but its a bright sunny day and they are hopeful of finding some Rainbow Trout and possibly some Browns too. They start by working a seam that runs along the far bank and Steve is the first to hook up catching a dark coloured Rainbow Trout around 10 inches on a Stonefly Nymph. Larry is using a double nymph set up, with a beaded Flashback Pheasant Tail above a Red Midge and its the Midge nymph that attracts his first fish. Steve decides to try a Streamer and ties on a small Olive Bugger. Its a good decision as he is rewarded with nice Brown Trout that puts up a strong fight in the cold water. After catching a few more, they move downstream below a road bridge, they find some slacker water and plenty of willing rainbows ready to take their flies. Not far away is the Big Lost River and which you can see the team fish in another epsiode.
