Good People - Good Water - Good Fish

This story will be quick.  I was meeting my buddy Leo from Chicago who's wife has a ranch in Wyoming.  I spent the night in Driggs, IA, for night sleep and a fantastic meal at the Three Peaks restaurant.  Leo would be picking me up in the morning, so I had half-day to try to catch a Teton River Trout.  

The pressure was that I might not be back in Idaho for years.  Not returning for years is always the case when fishing in many of the states I visit.  The game is on!  I have a yellow stimulated and a green copper john dropper.  Brooke and I slide into the river as the river is narrow but deep.  The Teton is a floating river, not necessarily an excellent wading river.

After an hour of seeing some rising fish, I still have no luck.  Brooke is patiently waiting.  I throw a couple of great casts where I know a trout has to live, and I snatch one on a copper john!  Idaho done!

I don't remember what I had but to celebrate, but I eat outside with Brooke.  We watched the sunset and had the whole outside of Three Peaks to ourselves.
