Fly Fishing with Muzzy! (part one)

Posted 08-21-2014 at 01:40 PM by mcnerney

Muzzy (muzz flaco from the forum) came back to Wyoming after spending some time in Colorado fishing with his buddy, so I headed down yesterday to fish with him again. The plan was to haul the pontoon boat down and use that to checkout several spots along the river. After doing the car shuttle and then heading back up to the launch site, we unloaded the pontoon from the truck, Muzzy grabbed the air pump to top off the bladders, while I started to unload the truck, first thing I went to grad was the oars and to my surprise they didn't get loaded (still kicking myself for that one). So back in the truck the pontoon goes and now to come up with plan B, we decided to just use the truck and hit a few spots along the river as a way to salvage the day. The morning started out pretty slow, but we landed a few, I lost a huge Brown, but I think it was my fault for being lazy for not changing out my hooks as I had a nymph that got wrapped in the tippet material and was facing backwards. Earlier I had tried some streamer fishing with no success while Muzzy with fishing dries, he had a few hits but missed the strike each time. The weather forecast was calling for 50% chance of rain in the form of pm thunderstorms and we already had some overcast early in the morning so that wasn't looking promising, but the rain held off and the dark menacing storms all seemed to pass to the south, at least until around 3 pm, that storm forced us off the river with the thunder, but by then we had had a good day of fishing. Here are a few photos of the day:

At least the Browns didn't completely ignore us on this day, he is small but at least he is a Brown:

I just had to take this photo, you won't see Muzzy fishing nymphs very often but today he finally gave in:
