Tenkara Fishing & Biking In Idaho
I have spared you the bike riding photos but let me tell you, the kids loved riding in the kid trailer down the trail and through the tunnels. Even my wife, who was not so sure a 17 mile bike ride would be fun, had a great time on the tandem bike with my sister. We contemplated attaching the kids trailer to the tandem but thought better of it. The thought of loosing our whole family over the edge of a 3000ft mountain side due to faulty driving on my part was the deciding factor.
It was perfect the way the wind was blowing slightly off my back and extending the fly out into the stream. I hovered the fly for a few seconds just inches over where I wanted it (about 18 feet from where I was standing) and then let it hit the water.
After I found out how they where biting and the fly they liked, it was consistent fun. Time however was not standing still and the fun with the fish gave way to fun with the family. Before long we loaded up the truck and cars with bikes and tired kids and headed back to Spokane for pulled pork, beverages, and a few hands of cards. Such a sweet day!
