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...

Yesterday I joined a few local fellows in a fly fishing endeavor. I had never met them in person before, but as probably is not all that uncommon- I met them in a fly fishing forum.

We decided to try out new water, and located some promising looking flows and ponds on a detailed map. It was quite an expedition getting to these remote higher altitude ponds. We moved fallen trees out of rutted dirt roads, we were roadblocked by national forest gates, we 4x4 crawled over large boulders...

I have a guide friend who is an avid hatch matcher. He will carefully pump the stomach of the first trout he catches, and dutifully inspect the contents. He will then tie on whatever the trout he caught has been eating.

Figuring out what bugs are on the river via watching what's buzzing around me, or looking under rocks is my own preferred method! I'm not much for stomach pumping.

On the other hand, function over form says: An elk hair caddis with a dropped copper...
