A Creek Runs Through It …

Specifically, Prichard Creek; and specifically, through the Idaho panhandle.  Mode of fishing: fly.  Type of fish: trout.

Pick a fly, any fly.

Note those fancy $5 polarized shades Big Dude procured at the shop where he got his fishing license.  By the end of the day, he upgraded to a sweet pair of Maui Jim’s he found abandoned on a creek log.

Papa fished far, far away from Big & Little Dude.  He must have thought they’d scare away his fish.  He was probably right.

Little Dude snagged his line somewhere on the opposite shore and passed it on to Big Dude to “fix”.

“Fixing” required getting a little wet.

Nana, meanwhile, found a really nice couch.  With a really nice view.

Final Tally
Papa: 2 fish
Big Dude: 1 nibble
Little Dude: none fish this trip

We continued exploring a little ways down the River: behold the tiny town of Murray…

We joked that this would be our fixer-upper summer property …

I love Nana's couch! : )
I love the intense fishing stance by Papa.
I think Big Dude looks like he is wearing skinny jeans. Nice : ).
If you do fix up that little house I will come to visit you.
