Its a beautiful September day and Ladin and Steve are fishing on a crystal clear, small Montana Creek for Cutthroat Trout. They're looking for rising fish and fishing dries and Steve finds his first fish with a size 18 Trico Dry Fly. Ladin then spots a rise from the corner of his eye and covers the fish which sups down his dry fly immediately and he lands another nice Cuttie. Ladin finds a nice run and targets the tail of it underneath a steep cliff and finds a nice Cutthroat on a Pheasant Tail Nymph. After a couple of long distance releases, Steve finds a pool with a few fish rising but can't quite identify the hatch which could be Caddis, Blue Winged Olive or possibly something smaller. He finally hooks up using a Purple Haze Mayfly but is left disappointed as the large Cutthroat slips the hook. Ladin sees fish below him so tries a downstream slack line cast, just feeding the line out towards the fish and is rewarded with another nice fish which they think is a Cuttbow. With plenty of fish rising, they can afford to be selective and try and pick out the bigger ones, having cracked the code today.
