On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I headed for South Folk of Boise River after four months approximately. It was a kind of anual event for me(Last Winter).
It was cloudy and so cold about 15F(-10C) in the morning. I thought it must be one of the colder fishing trip.
I could see some midge hatch at first hole, but no fish rose. So I tried nymphing, stonefly nymph and brassie dropper.
I got two whitefish by brassie. They were about 15 inch, not bad.
It was difficult to continue fishing because of its coldness. Everything got frozen easily, and I had numbed fingers. Though I did several holes, I got nothing.
At last hole, I could see some rises. It was about 15:30. So I change the rig to the dry fly system.
I got the one(18.5inch/47cm) by midge parachute. It was my pleasure to catch it by dry fly inspite of such a coldness.
Those rises continued about one hour, but I couldn't get a strike more.
