Wyoming Fly Fishing, June 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:27 PM by mcnerney

Well the winds have finally subsided, I thought I was living in a wind tunnel for the past couple of days. Yesterday I did a float on one of the local rivers. I had no real idea of the float distance (upwards of 10 miles or more), so just to be safe I decided to leave the house by 5:30 and get on the water early in case those heavy winds come roaring back in the afternoon.

We do our best to protect their homes...but why? Why do I care?

I'd become hooked on fly fishing long before, as a child, probably by reading some issue of Outdoor Life my Dad had subscribed to for my sake, but in those days the focus...

You may decide otherwise.
I set up a jig and had a great time building leaders this winter. Not that hard, just followed some sites and articles. Now we will see how they work in...
