New Listing in Iowa! Prairie Song Farm

New Listing Coming Soon! – Prairie Song Farm, Iowa

By: Tate Jarry, Broker

If you are like me, an avid fly fisherman who often plans a seasonal trip to a destination trout fishery, I would venture to guess that Iowa is not on your short list of states to spend time wetting a line.  It certainly didn’t make my list unless we are talking about fly fishing with a 10-weight for musky. A recent visit to the northeast corner of the state and a 2-day fishing experience on the spring creeks of Prairie Song Farm have changed my opinion of the fly fishing opportunities found in the Midwest as well as my list of destination trout fisheries.

Here are a few pictures of my recent trip and depiction of the fishery located on Prairie Song Farm.

My just rewards for a 14-hour workday on the Sabbath…

 

I had 2 considerably larger fish on but lost them as I had to steer the fish around big hunks of floating ice – quite the challenge.  Good times.  God bless 50+ temps in February.
