July 8 & 9, 2014
This summer has been a blur. In fact this year has been a blur. I’ve hardly done anything normal as far as fishing goes. Yea, there were a few days on the Henry’s Fork but normally I fish there ten times in June. It’s been bass, carp, Bhutan, saltwater and a million things other than trout fishing back home.
This week was time for something that Granny and I love to do. Something we do because we live in the Yellowstone Country. Tuesday and Wednesday was our annual overnight float down the Nunya.
If you aren’t familiar with the Nunya, backtrack on my blog to 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. And there’s another 20 years of stories but they’re before blog times. Granny and I have been fishing here for a very long time.
Granny and I loaded up the Exploder Monday night and headed for the brew pub nearest the river. We met up with a friend and got the fishing and water levels report. The water was up but the bugs were hatching. Where Granny and I usually go was too high to float and expect to catch fish so we rearranged things and floated a stretch we haven’t done in ten years. Things worked out just fine.

I may have to come back this week!
I apologize for the lack of detail on the last couple blogs. I have been suffering from TERRIBLE computer issues. Not just my computer itself but also my internet service. At this time next week I should have a new computer and already have a much better internet service that doesn’t go down every time lightening strikes.
