Comments: I've only been fly fishing for about a month and i'm definitely addicted. I fished the Clear fork River about 3-4 times a week not really knowing what to do. I'd catch a chub every once in awhile but that's it. I've watched countless videos on YouTube for tips like what flies to use and where I should cast and today i finally caught a trout. When I was pulling it in I thought it was just another chub but it was a small brown trout about 5 inches long which surprised me because they don't stock fingerlings anymore. I caught it on a small size 20 black zebra midge. After i released it there was a trout 20 yards downstream that looked to be about 11-13 inches long jumping out of the water going upstream. I have no idea what it was doing but it was cool to watch. I tried to catch it but I ended up spooking it. Great day on the river.
