Road trips are the best, especially ones that combine family time and fly-fishing.
We’re on our way to Yellowstone and decided to spend some quality time in the Badlands and Black Hills National Forest. What a beautiful corner of the world where most tourists bypass on their way to YNP. Water here is cool and clear. Rock formations are majestic. And trout are eager to bite a dry fly.....just an awesome place to ponder your thoughts and get lost in the grand scenery.
I caught mostly brookies and one lone rainbow but catching fish was secondary to setting foot on such a majestic area.
Thanks for looking. Fish hard and enjoy the day.
First hole of the day where I caught a brookie.
First trout of the day.
Lone rainbow but good size.
A little faster water.
Out comes an eager brookie.
Pretty colors on this one.
Back to campground for yummy dinner.
Nice water close to our tent.
Another small brookie.
