There is a saying that adventure travel is only adventurous after the fact. during the trip it is more like a day-long pain in the butt. sometimes fly fishing is like that. It is not until the last rays of the sun (or later for those Madison river evenings) slip away that the day starts to become fishing stories. As friends gather around a table of food and drink the eats become more epic, the flies smaller, the wind harsher, the misses more painful and the mistakes become more hilarious. It is here, in this moment, that memories are cast. And it is here, in this place, at this time, that you need a cold one, a fried one and one on a bun. Or something like that.

The TroutHunter in Island Park, ID does a lot of things right. Great location, great looking lodge, knowledgeable guides, rusty spinners tied just right... but you could make the argument that what they do best is food. Their food is so good and that is not just because the rest of Island Park is so bereft of quality food. The TroutHunter's Last Chance burger can hold up against nearly anyone. Certainly anyone within casting range.

Super friendly staff, cold beer, sweet patio for summer days and a great bar/restaurant for colder nights and perhaps most important, quality iced tea.

Go for:
The Last Chance Burger
The Hickory Burger
The Bison Burger
