Fishing New Water

IMG00095-20091015-1828When thinking about writing this post I wanted to just tell what we did where we fished and throw up a few pictures. I know that is most of the time what I do but this time when I sat back thinking of how satisfying it was to fish new waters and have great success I wanted to share a couple pointers that I do when I hit new waters.

Last week I had a meeting in Great Falls, MT so I wanted to plan extra time on the way up and the way back to fish. On the way up we stopped on the Beaverhead just a mile or so below the dam. I read some things about the river and the advice was to use a pheasant tail size 16. Right when I hit the water I put on the recommended fly and sure enough it produced and produced big!!  The down side was I only had my camera phone to take some pics.

After fishing these waters I will be heading back as soon as possible.
