I think we mostly used 16 and 18's, but understand even 14's are good. I fished them alone mostly because the wind got ugly later in the day. Fred (I changed my friend's name so I could make more fun of him on here) doesnt use indicators and is 'old school' or 'a purist' or just stubborn and misses alot more fish than I do using them.
The Pheasant tail (PT Cruzers) we used below are some of Tollett's own styled pattern (I butchered his name first time) and he ties them in all manner of colors, and we bought several, but yellow just worked best this trip. I'm definately gonna use them on all my fishing now, not just on the Beaverhead.

So it appears I really donít know what the heck Iím talking about when it comes to this river; so itíd be best I just stick with taking pretty pictures and recording flows and conditions to what I experience while on it; and skip my bogus predictions of what might or might not occur later next week or even this Summer.
I just woke up and rechecked the flows Fred told me over the phone late last night and he mustíve been reading the charts for around Barrettís, instead of whatís coming out of Clarks Canyon; so I had all but given up on taking the boat, but now we might after all (not sure)?
Iíll post an update here tonight or tomorrow (on whichever river we decide) and will kindly eliminate all future juvenile reference to Star Wars and ďthe ForceĒ.
Thatís Fredís fault, heís a bit of a middle aged geek, but a good fishing buddy when he can pry himself away from his obsessive wife and crazy kids (rare).
We're off here in mere minutes...Wish us luck!
