Today I floated the Madison River with Steve (Skinny) from the Slide Inn. Today was a day to streamer fish, throwing large weighted flies hoping to catch the biggest trout. It was also the perfect weather today for this type of fishing, it was overcast, cool, no wind and some really awesome thunder, lightning and huge hail in the afternoon. Most of my pictures from today didn't come out because my camera got soaked in the midst of the hail storm. I hope I can dry it out.

The fishing was fantastic today. I had over 70 fish chase my streamer and I was able to land about 20 of them.
