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

A Troutbum on the Texas Coast

I didn't plan on coming to Texas at all.  A year ago I was wrapping up a stretch of work and planned on spending Summer in Montana... it was glorious for the most part.  But by the middle of October I had to make a decision on where to go next, and since it was … Continue reading A Troutbum on the Texas Coast

Thermal Feature on the Firehole

A Bad Day of Fly Fishing is Better Than…

I spent Tuesday afternoon on the Firehole river in Yellowstone National Park. It was reputed to be "on fire" (yuk yuk) by the West Yellowstone fly shops, and I've long wanted to fish the stretch where geysers are steaming away stream-side.

Not including the prequel spent in the high Sierra of California or the week in Reno waiting for news about my Dad.  He died on on Father's Day, back … Continue reading A Thousand Miles, Thirty Days

Sunset on the Henry's Fork

Seven Hours at Last Chance

Seven hours walking along the banks of the Henry's Fork, standing in the current, looking at bugs and birds.  Almost nothing was going on in the water, until a explosion of action for 15 minutes or so nearing sunset.  Huge drakes popping off the water and fish gulping them down all around me, while rain … Continue reading Seven Hours at Last Chance

Starting the Fourth Year on the Road

It was April in 2015 that I left my job and headed out on the road towards unknown destinations. As I am getting ready to take off again for new unknowns, I thought I'd take a look back at those first weeks on the road. It took longer than I had anticipated to prepare my … Continue reading Starting the Fourth Year on the Road
