Husband and wife fly fishers build their dream riverside retreat

Share This Story!

The Harriman Ranch of Idaho’s Henrys Fork River is one of the best spots in the United States for fly fishing. Anglers from across the country flock there for their chance to catch one the river’s legendary trout, which are known to grow to giant proportions. So it’s not too surprising that Phil and Kate Barker, both avid anglers, decided to build their own fishing retreat at Harriman Ranch. They enlisted Blair Anderson of Hilgard Log Builders to design their dream cabin on a 20-acre property that boasts a gorgeous view of Lake Henry. During the summer months, Phil and Kate, along with their grown children, spend their time here hiking, horseback riding—and of course, fishing.
