Rock-Hopping on the Upper Yellowstone

July 22, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Charlie Conn and Zach Pierce of Sweetwater Fly Shop in Livingston scramble down steep trails to reach the salmonfly hatch on the upper river in Yellowstone National Park. “After stashing their hiking boots behind a boulder and assembling their rods, the two hopscotched their way upstream, dapping large, hand-tied, imitation salmon flies with names like ‘Terranasty,’ ‘Cat Puke’ and the ‘Foaminator’ into the eddies behind rocks.” Article by the Associated Press.
