Floating High on the West Fork of the Nunya

July 8 & 9, 2014


blog-July-9-2014-1-flyfishing-in-wyomingThis 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.


blog-July-8-2014-2-camping-in-wyomingThis 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.


blog-July-8-2014-3-brown-trout-fishingIf 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.


blog-July-8-2014-4-winston-fly-rodsGranny 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.

blog-July-9-2014-11-flyfishing-for-brown-troutI 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.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
