September is for Brides and Contests
September must be the month for contests as the JH (Jackson Hole) News and Guide reports that Peter Moyer has won the One Fly tournament with a simple San Juan worm. In addition to several large fish, Mr. Moyer raised a few eyebrows among contests purists.
"It was fun to worm the One Fly it was time, said Moyer, a mischievous smile on his face. The big fish were really going for it. "
When he says big fish he means it.
Of the six trout Moyer measured on Saturday, the smallest came in at 18 inches, two measured 19 inches, two were 20 inches and one was 21 inches. Moyer also claimed to have spotted a 24-inch trout near his feet but wasn't able to land it.
