The Bighorn River is a world-class fishery in Montana, hosting thousands of trout per mile. No doubt, a bucket list destination for many fly anglers.  I’ve been fortunate to have fished this river for the last three years. A good day on the river might produce a series of fish in the range of 12 to 22 inches.
The day after Thanksgiving, on a pleasure float with the love of my life, and sixteen other friends, I landed this big boy! A true Bighorn trophy! Talk about being thankful.
