About Me

  • About fyshstykr
    Biography
    My name is John, married to Pam aka...Mrs fysh, (who likes to fish even more than I do.) We have 3 kids. Our 23 year old daughter Samantha and 2 yellow labs that go by Cooper and Lexi.

    I've been tossing flies since roughly 1978 when my Dad bought me an Eagle Claw 'Sweetheart' fiberglass rod and a Garcia clicker reel. His intention was to keep me out of trouble.....it worked for the most part until I discovered girls.
    I spent many hours on a small local lake when I was teenager and was lucky enough to befriend a local fisherman who also happened to be a F&G Biologist, his name was Chuck Nielson.
    He taught me how to cast and the basics of entomology, I'll always be very indebted to him for his teaching and patience, those big Rainbow's and Cutt's we used to catch with the truck headlights shining on the edge of the lake were amazing. Fishing was so simple back then, all we ever used were Woolly Worms and Double Renegade's.

    Later on in my early 20's I met another fellow on The Green River, he was from Kentucky and his name was Howard Patterson, he became another mentor for me. He would fly out West a couple times a year and fish with me on the Henry's Fork and The Green River below Flaming Gorge. He has since passed on, but his teachings will be used and passed on some day hopefully to a future grandchild.
    I tell our daughter that her first child needs to be a boy. LOL! Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I met my wonderful wife and fishing partner, Pam, in 1997' and have enjoyed teaching her the things I've learned over time, she continues to amaze me with her ability to catch more and bigger fish than me. I act like it bothers me, but inside I'm happy for her. She is my best friend.

    We live in northern Utah and fish Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and occasionally Utah.(we now fish Utah even less, Thanks to the Governor and wonderful state legislature). There's still hope that Utah's idiotic access laws will change, but the litigation will take a few more years and much more money unfortunately.

    During the year we spend most of our time throwing streamers on the South Fork of the Snake, fishing small dries to large Rainbow on The Henry's Fork, or swinging for Steelhead on The Salmon or Grande Ronde Rivers. We've become infected with 'Steelheaditus'. It sounds terrible, but what an awesome game it is, and I look forward to playing for many years to come.
    I LOVE USING THE 2HANDED ROD!

    My wife, Pam(mrsfysh') is a Dental Hygienist, an Independent Scentsy Consultant, and if that's not enough....she's also the Program Coordinator for CfR Utah....she's a busy woman!
    I am a Composites Technologies Instructor at a local community college. In the future I'd like to apply my carbon fiber knowledge and skills towards making my own custom rod blanks....maybe someday.

    I love Utah Jazz, Denver Broncos, Ice Cold Beer, Good Scotch(Glenlivet), and a great Steak with Mushrooms. lol!
    Location
    Plain City, Utah.

    Fishing, rod building, reading, dove and pheasant hunting, photography, working in my yard.
    Occupation

This weekend Pam and I headed to The South Fork to celebrate our Anniversary. The water has been very high all Summer and has only come down to fishable and safe floating levels over the last couple weeks, needless to say it's been a tough season with no "water therapy" on our favorite river.

This being our Anniversary I bought Pam a new rod(ok it was a very lightly used, well taken care of rod that I picked up from Paul aka "IMXER"), a Loomis GL4 9' 6wt that will...
