Wyoming Fly Fishing with Muzzy

Posted 07-05-2014 at 10:19 AM by mcnerney

Last year after reading about Muzzy's "Kung Fu Sabbatical 13" I contacted him and told him I would like to fish with him on his way through Wyoming and we ended up fishing three days together and had a great time. He ended up taking seven months off and touring the Rockies and western U.S. camping and fly fishing.........something we all have dreamed about at one time or another, but hard to pull off due to work/family responsibilities.
For those of you that haven't read Muzzy's trip report on his Kung Fu Sabbatical, here it is: Kung Fu Sabbatical 13
Muzzy found work in California over the winter and is now out camping and fly fishing through the west, but this will be a much shorter trip of around two months and as he made his way back into Wyoming we got together for a few days of fishing here in Western Wyoming. I was a bit worried as we have had high muddy water for the past month or so, but Muzzy's timing was perfect, the water is now back down running clear and the bugs are out making for some epic dry fly fishing, although the mosquitoes are also out and relentless. Midges were hatching by the millions as well as a pretty healthy Caddis hatch, the Yellow Sallies were out in force as was the PMD's. Here are some photos of your fishing together:

It was a great time seeing Muzzy again and better yet to wet a line together and the epic dry fly fishing topped it all off. Muzzy is headed up to Jackson to attend a friend's wedding before heading off to more fishing.
