Spring is coming to Wyoming a bit earlier this year. Recent temperatures have been getting into the high 40s, helping to melt the snow and ice in the backyard and turn our attention toward fishing.
Jamie and I spent a few days last week soaking up the sun in Bisbee, AZ; celebrating my uncle's retirement in proper fashion with lost of good food, drink and the Bad News Blues Band. After returning from that, and getting a few hours of sleep, I eagerly hopped in my friend Matt's truck and headed south for Flaming Gorge. There, we spent three days fishing to selective brown and rainbow trout all while enjoying the spectacular scenery that make the Gorge so pretty. The weather was great, crowds small, and sizable trout were caught.
Back here in Wyoming, I'm readying fishing gear in anticipation of some great early season fishing. In the coming week, I'll be doing a little guiding on the Snake and tying more flies.
Ps. the Fly Fishing Film tour is stopping in Jackson tonight, beginning at 7 at the Center for the Arts theater in downtown Jackson Hole. Hope to see you there!
