Around here, fishing takes precedent over blogging. And while I'm sorry I haven't posted anything lately, I am pleased to report that fishing around here has been fantastic. Aside from a few stray cold days, we've been having beautiful fall weather. Skies are blue with the contrasting yellows and oranges of changing cottonwood and aspen trees along the river banks and temperatures, while cold at night, continue to warm things up during the day.
Over the past few weeks I've gotten to take guests out on some of my favorite waters around here in Wyoming. Some, like the Snake and Firehole are well known, others are sleepers. Regardless, it's been a lot of fun putting folks on fish, especially return guests that I've fished before. Below are some photos from the past week; putting long fall days in perspective and hopefully illustrating what it's like to fly fish in Jackson Hole, Yellowstone and surrounding western Wyoming waters!
Here's Mark casting to a rising rainbow trout on the Firehole river in YNP..
Up Close and Personal with the Alpha Female; I took it as a good omen..
Chris finding a remote YNP stream both challenging and rewarding (not to mention beautiful)
A wild Yellowstone Cutthroat trout! (author's note: I'm a little ashamed of the streamer in his mouth, but you gotta do what you gotta do....)
Black Canyon of the Yellowstone River; makes for a long, but awesome day!
