  1. Fly Fishing the Green River, WY

    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.

  4. Wyoming Fly Fishing with Muzzy

    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 ...
