Where: Holter Dam Tailwaters
When: Sept 3-4, 2012
Who: Zito Brothers - Nate, John, Leonard
Why: World famous dry fly fishing!
Last year Nate and John had an incredible trip to the "Mighty Mo"... catching several wild rainbows and brown trout on dry fly's! This years "Zito Brother" trip would include 2-3 days on the Missouri...courtesy of Nate's boat, rowing power, and hotel scheduling...and a bit of fly guiding!

Nate spent the majority of his time on the river tying our fly's, un-tangling our knots, and rowing all over the river...Thanks Nate!!
I probably caught 1 fish out of every 10 that I had hit my fly...pretty sad. It was a bit windy and these trout required much more experience to catch than in the high mountain lakes I usually fish.
Water 1-2 miles below the dam was very fishy...
John caught the largest trout of the 2 days.
Summary: Weather was in the high 80's during the late morning/afternoon. Scenery was gorgeous...was great to spend some good times with my brothers...laughing and goofing off. Fishing was great 1-2 miles below the dam...after that it was really slow to non-existant. Had a great time with Nate and John...
