FLY FISHING CHRONICLES OF THE YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (part 4)
As you enter the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park which is located on the outskirts of Gardiner Montana you don't drive very far and the first river that you encounter is the Gardner. To many of the visitors the Gardner appears to be that typical brawling western freestone stream as it rush and tumbles on its way to join the Yellowstone River. The Gardner runs close to the road for several miles however many anglers take one look at the rocky bottom and the turbulent water and keep heading further into the park to some of the more famous streams that are easier to wade.
Just thought I'd poke you in the ribs (LOL) with this trivia question related to 'Fly Fishing Chronicles' about Yellowstone Park:
Who was the first chronicled fisherman to actually fly fish in the Park? Here, I believe, is an accurate hint - He did it to catch trout with which to feed a group of army cavalry.
PS - This information does appear in a book.
