Jeed's Journal: I swear I'm NOT horrible!

Posted 07-22-2014 at 09:04 PM by jeed

Even though I've already had an introduction, its been awhile so I figured I'd start up a journal thread to reintroduce myself and share my experiences, ask the hard questions, maybe even make a joke or two. Hell, it might even be entertaining. So Here....We....Go!

Entry 1: 07/22/14

Hi I'm John. I'm a soon to be 27 year old guy from southern CT; I'm a nerd, an artist, and a mostly loyal friend. I say mostly because I've only ever had one affair in my life, and well,...

Fishing a Private Wyoming Ranch: The Highs and Lows!

Posted 07-22-2014 at 08:56 AM by mcnerney

I got invited out to fish on a private ranch this afternoon. When I got there the owner told me that virtually no one fishes this small stream, I'm thinking I have died and gone to heaven.......can it get any better than this!
I rig up and head toward the small stream, no bigger than 10 ft across. The owner had told me they have some big trout in that stream so I opt to use my Hardy Zenith 5 wt. I tie on a size 18 parachute adams and within 5 minutes of casting I'm into a really nice Rainbow....

Fishing Wyoming

Posted 07-22-2014 at 08:51 AM by mcnerney

Yesterday I did a float on the New Fork river, it was pretty slow, landed one nice Rainbow and a big Whitefish, lots of wildlife along the river made for some interesting moments. When I finally reached the takeout I saw nine rigs there in the parking lot, wow, that is a lot of traffic on such a small river. Today I did a float on the Green, totally different day, landed several nice Rainbows and lost 6 others, quit around 1:30 pm when the wind came up, life is good! Ran into Muzzy at the campground,...

Yesterday I took some time and ventured OFF the beaten trail. As in off the "I fish here all the time" trail. It took a little map work, some plotting of routes, and some Googling- but I was rewarded with a fairly precise and successful expedition.

What I mean by precise and successful is that I did not waste alot of time on the road plotting a route or getting lost, and I found water and caught fish. I did the work ahead of time and knew the type of road, what to look...

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...
