Earlier this week while fishing with veteran guide Mike Faris on the Bighorn River, I heard a new take on the ninety-ten rule. While I was lamenting all of the great looking water that we were pushing through during our float, Mike assured me that at this time of the year, "Ninety percent of the fish are in ten percent of the water." It took some convincing, but by days' end I was a believer. It's an interesting concept, and one that I suspect we would all do well to keep in mind, at least during the winter months.
Read my post on the MT Sporting Journal blog for a report on the trip.
