Quick Change Weather and Pink Fishing Rods

| May 22, 2010

Sometimes Sarah gets frustrated with fly fishing and traipsing around in fast flowing rivers with me searching for trout, and it’s true, sometimes I push too hard.  She’s always asking to use a worm.  (Oh, the horror!)  So, last weekend while we were rendezvousing with Emily in Park City Utah for a visit, we picked […]

In 2010, I resolve to…

| January 2, 2010

I’m not really one for making New Year’s resolutions but there are a couple of things I am hoping to improve upon this next year and I suppose today is as good as any to get started.  To begin with… I aim to improve upon my blogging skills. Perhaps you have noticed that I haven’t […]

A “Little” Fishing Story

| June 17, 2009

I haven’t gone fishing in a few weeks now, the rivers are all high and muddy from the spring runoff and I’ve been preparing for summer camp.  However, there’s light at the end of the tunnel as they’re beginning to come back to normal – slowly but surely and if I’m not prepared for camp […]

The Serpent and Unreachable Trout

| May 23, 2009

Taking a slight departure from my standard haunt I’ve been fishing the Lower Madison lately. The Madison is one of the most famous fly fishing destinations in the world and for good reason. It’s full of character, with more faces than Lon Chaney and stretching from Yellowstone National Park to its confluence with the Gallatin […]

Springtime in Montana

| May 2, 2009

Well, I packed up and headed for Montana this past week and as promised, packed light.  I even had room to sleep.  To be fair I don’t have Sarah with me yet which saved space. She will join me in a few weeks and then stay until the end of the summer.  For now it’s […]

Utah Fishing Marathon

| April 25, 2009

Woody and I took a couple of days this past week for a quick fishing marathon in Utah.  While we didn’t catch too many fish we certainly had an adventure. First stop was Kingston Canyon on the East Fork of the Sevier River where we were able to catch a few fish and Woody made […]

Leeds Creek, Utah

| March 5, 2009

I took a little spur of the moment trip to Utah on Monday to fish Leeds creek with Woody.  I’ve wanted to fish this creek for a while since it holds Bonneville cutthroat trout which I’ve never caught. Bonneville cutthroats are really only found in parts of the Bonneville Basin and a few areas in […]

Provo Fishing Trip – January 2009

| March 1, 2009

In early January, a couple of buddies and I took a 3 day trip to fish the Provo river in Utah.  It was during one of the snowiest, coldest weekends of the year with temperatures dropping to subzero at times.  It was tough fishing with icy guides and frozen stiff waders; but great fun and […]

Fly Tying Dad

| February 25, 2009

I’ve been tying alot lately hoping to fill my boxes with anything I might need through this next season.  A couple of photos Sarah took with my camera.  I think she’s got a pretty good eye.

Fly Tying Bench

| February 23, 2009

Fly Tying Bench: I have been spending a great deal of time at the bench lately tying flies.  My bench is right behind our couch and quite central in our living room.  It’s crowded and cluttered and I’ve been wanting to improve upon it for a long time.  Last week I finally went out in […]

The Madison River 1

| May 28, 2007

Last night one of the board members and his family took us to dinner and to see Pirates of the Caribbean.  Our truck died and since it’s a holiday weekend we decided to just leave it until Tuesday to save on the cost of repairs.  He loaned us his mini-van for the next couple of […]
