The Madison River

Mangled Madison Mandibles

I fished the Madison between Raynolds Pass and Three Dollar Bridge yesterday, focusing on a group of rising fish in a big slick behind a series of boulders. There were no observable bugs on the water, apart from the odd caddis or two. The reliable hatch of the moment is supposed to be blue winged … Continue reading Mangled Madison Mandibles

Last Days of Summer

The first day of fall is approaching fast, Wednesday the 22nd. I've spent the last days of Summer 2021 around the northern part of Yellowstone National Park. Yesterday the weather took a marked turn and this morning the hills and mountain peaks are all frosted with snow. The overcast skies and and push of fresh … Continue reading Last Days of Summer

2021 Interior Renovation

Home Renovations for 2021

This April marked the beginning of my sixth year living out of this 2006 Funmover. They really don't build these things for full time living, and it actually voids the warranty if you do so. Some of the cheap materials and poor construction techniques are really shockingly bad. Chipboard held together with staples, for the … Continue reading Home Renovations for 2021

The Long Draw Cutthroat

Searching for Grayling and Salmonflies

Last Sunday, I rode up the Poudre Canyon for the third week in a row to check on Joe Wright reservoir, looking to hit the grayling spawning run. Three years ago I lucked into it on June 26, and it was some of the craziest fly fishing action I’ve ever experienced… a fish on every … Continue reading Searching for Grayling and Salmonflies

The Tiny First Fish of 2020 in Colorado

I've been at work in Colorado for two weeks now and have eased back into fly fishing freshwater. Aside from a few outings for panfish in a Petaluma pond and a couple of short days on creeks in Arizona and Nevada, I haven't fished freshwater since the Fall of 2018. I went with a friend … Continue reading The Tiny First Fish of 2020 in Colorado

Eastbound Again -A Stop at Lamoille Canyon, Nevada

I'm headed to Colorado again to finish up a job I started there back in 2016. In 2015, my first year traveling in my Funmover RV, I stopped at Lamoille Canyon in June and enjoyed a few great days flyfishing up and down the creek. I visited again in 2018 on my way to Montana, … Continue reading Eastbound Again -A Stop at Lamoille Canyon, Nevada
