Smallmouth Bass Fishing with Two Six Year Olds!

Posted 08-07-2014 at 10:14 AM by mcnerney

Earlier in the week the wife and I traveled down to Colorado to visit with my son and his kids, do a little fishing and take everyone out to see a Rockies baseball game. My wife isn't into fishing, but she is from Chicago and loved watching the Cubs play the Rockies, especially when the Rockies threw away a two run lead when they ran into pitching problems and walked six straight. Argh! Earlier in the day we took the kids out to a friends place that is just loaded with Smallmouth Bass and a few...

Fly Fishin' Wyoming

Posted 08-01-2014 at 07:22 PM by mcnerney

After three days of rain, the sunny summer weather has returned to our small part of the world so I decided to take advantage of it and made it out for some fishing today. It was my turn to take care of the dogs, we have a new rescue puppy that is pretty much out of control, but getting better, but she loves the water, so I really didn't have very high expectations on being successful at fishing, but despite all the ruckus in the water it was actually quite surprising results. Lots of birds out...

Montana solitude

Posted 07-31-2014 at 08:34 PM by mikel

God, it was hot. Monster flies buzzed loudly and gnats incessantly sought the moisture in my eyes. The sun in the Rockies bore down and stung my skin with its intensity...but my feet were soon to be in 55 degree water and a fly rod was in my hand. On balance, not so bad.

It was just a blue line, this little stream, not even a name on the map. But, it was accessible from a forest service road. When I'd asked at the fly shop the guide working the register said give it a go. He knew...

Entry 2: 7/29/14

RIGHT]Entry 2: 7/29/14[/RIGHT]



So since the first entry, I've had about four more outings: three on the fly, as you old guys say.

Second outing, wasn't anything to write home about. After my first dance, my resolve was a bit shaken. Admittedly, I wasn't ready for that end of the skunk at the lake; She put me in check with authority and I was laid out in shock at Her mercy. My fiancÚ, the saint she is, wanted to do something fun for our anniversary (8...

Fly Fishing the Green River, WY

Posted 07-29-2014 at 03:59 PM by mcnerney

It's been a bit of a dry spell for me, but I finally made it out fishing yesterday, we've had house guests the past week, the in-laws were visiting from Illinois. The brother-in-law wanted to try fly fishing so I took him out to the New Fork river the other day, but we found that the river was still a little high so instead of trying to wade we just did some casting practice on the bank.
Here he is starting to put it all together, looking over the shoulder to get the timing for the forward...
