Photo of the day: Sunset Rainbows in Utah

Not much time for photos when the fish are biting and the sun is setting.

I had about 30 minutes to kill after work on Tuesday, so I fished one of the lakes near a Falcon’s Ledge. It was drizzling and the fish were sipping midge emergers, so I tied on a size 18 Zebra Midge below a dry fly. The sipping rainbows took the Zebra Midge readily, and I caught a few beautifully spotted rainbows, which jumped and cartwheeled and put up a great fight. The sun quickly set, so I packed up and headed for home. I can’t wait to get out again this weekend.

  1. Rainbow season can be intense in Utah, where the skies are so dry that rain clouds tend to blow through quickly, leaving the sun to set directly behind them. Luckily I have got resume writing service to complete my work on time. During the summer months, you can see a rainbow almost every evening in the Beehive State.
