That was so awesome, yet totally torturing to know that I won't be touching those fish in the near future/ever. 20 yrs ago I'd have booked a trip instantly/who cares what THAT would cost, now looking at my lack of retirement(because of all those "who cares what that would cost ") trips in the 80's/90's) and having a hard time just justifying trips to ID/Rockies. Never done the Owyhee and my fishing buddy in Hailey has raved about it...Thinking about it. Do you know actually where that was filmed? Know it's way south. Tom

Oh my! There is one more thing I REALLY want to go do now.

I can't believe the fish density there.

Bucket list fish. Miniature pissed off tarpon that aggressively feed in shallow water. I've seen some "Everglade" style fishing in S.A. backwaters where these fish just obliterate tackle.

Yes please.

The fact that the river looks like the Green River canyon and the fish live in steelhead water only makes me want it more.

I should probably do that one day.

Swamp fish can be cool, but running water is where it's at, maybe the snider program can start putting those in the Sol Duc.

For that, I would recommend a 1 weight Tenkara set-up to a 8x tippet and size 26 dry. No floatant or you'll ruin the presentation.

The only question I have is how does one turn over a big ass fly like that without a Skagit head?
