Fished the upper Madison River last weekend. My first spot was completely devoid of fish. My second was too crowded with five cars at the access point. I moved to a third spot that I had never fished before. It was cold enough to freeze the guides up. Slipped and fell in but saved the camera. Was getting a little frustrated and about to call it good for the day but talked myself into a few more casts. That’s when this fella hit on a $3 dip pattern. The fish on the upper river are some of the prettiest wild fish you will ever see.
Ice-age Ichthyosaur... Needless to say, the stoke was real when @murrytheman scooped this fish. And ol' @colonel_mustard24 might have been on the lens-work... can't remember... i do recall @ramblin.rash was tied up with another bruiser upstream. That whole weekend was a little fuzzy, but one for the books for sure... ⚡️ ⚡️ ⚡️
