lander, wyoming fly fishing

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

the fishing is steady. come out and enjoy it. the water on the wind is going up! which Im glad to hear. makes running the boat with clients easier. I ran it the other day at 835 cfs and it was skinny. half day of work tomorrow on the ranch then off to the river to fish. I have been busy tying up a storm in preparation for upcoming trips. I stopped by Rocky Mountain Dubbing Company on the way back from the ranch. that place is stocked with everything in terms of tying. I went upstairs and saw where they dye and package all of the tying materials. they make some great products and I tie with their materials because they are local. you should too.

good fishing, interesting weather

Monday, April 26th, 2010

here are a few photos from the week. it has been a great past few days. the weather has been uncooperative for the most part, but if you can handle the constant wind and weather this fishing is really solid. I have had the opportunity to fish for myself this past week and its been a lot of fun. lander is a great town, the people are friendly, the views are spectacular, and the fish willingly take a fly. I have met a lot of very receptive people so far and look forward to this upcoming summer.  one contact in particular, ron hansen, of Wind River Outdoors Company, just solved my biggest problem of living in lander, last minute fly fishing supplies that are close by. his shop is going to opened up by the end of May and if you are ever in the Lander area be sure to stop by and say hello. the wind is supposed to pick up tomorrow and ill be on the river. standard. this time I will bring a camera. I managed to stick a big hen a few nights ago. I taped her out at 26.5. life is good.

on the river for a week

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

i will be on the river for the next week. the wind got the better of me today, after fishing thru the wind i came back to a broken tent pole and a soaking wet camp. I had to break camp in gusts of winds and dry out. regardless fishing has been great. the rainbows are for the most part done spawning on the wind. the bows are hot and fighting well. I have managed one brown so far and lots of nice rainbows. now I am a motel in thermop drying everything out. round 2 tomorrow. photos wont load…..

WIND with more WIND…

Monday, April 5th, 2010

but we still cleaned up. converted yet another die hard fly fisherman to the darkside of the centerpin world. when fishing with two pins its incredible effective to anchor and fish 2 at a time. so we did just that after running drifts with the boat and fly rods. we found a corner out of the wind and worked our way down a run 2 times. it took the entire afternoon to do 2 laps on the run. it was wicked busy, but the fishing was solid and I was glad to be on the jetboat rather than the bank… 2 memorable parts of the day included… getting a bank fisherman’s nalgene water bottle that was floating down the river for him and then him asking us what the hell we were using and doing to catch so many fish. the other highlight of the day was watching pmo run 100 yard drifts and hit fish on them with the 12 foot 6 inch speypin… one to remember.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Stuart Ward of Kingpin Reels for hooking me up with a new Sovereign 478. such an amazing reel. it just keeps on spinning… looking forward to seeing the new IMPERIALS when they come out….
