    Ok, here are a few shots showing off Wyoming, they were all taken with a point and shoot camera and I don't have the photography skills that Kory and Brain, but this will have to do.
    This was a float trip on the middle Green river with Davo, Fysh and Cromney from the forum.

    Well Larry, I have never been to Wyoming (or Montana, Idaho, Colorado, etc.) but always figured they are the kind of place I could like very much.

    You have confirmed this for me.

    KWB,
    I recognize the location of some of your pictures that you didn't label. Here is a picture I took of the same Island from a slightly different location. I fish this river alot in the summer.

    Picture of the Island in the river same as KWB


    Just down river last summer there was a canoe wedged in the river, see it in the picture?

    Dang Boozer ... to be honest I don't miss SW Michigan very often, but you did it with that set of photos! The St. Joe is such great river, and I do miss the big lake. One summer Sunday morning quite a few years ago my buddy that I grew up with there dropped his canoe in at Berrien Springs and puttered all the way to BH were we pulled over and restocked the cooler at Tackle Haven! Then we decided to go all the way out the channel, by then it was a beautiful summer afternoon and the channel was busy, we motored out onto the lake and cruised up the Silver Beach side. I still remember how perfect that day was, looking at the sand 20' below through the water. Fresh water Caribbean!

    Then we had drive all the way back to Berrien Springs to get the other car, yikes.

    What's the little trib stream you showed? And does it fish at all?

    This is a great thread! Thought I'd jump in with some of my 'home states'.

    There first is where I was born, Chicago suburbs. The cynic in me says this picture describes it



    But I'll add this picture of my niece catching her first fish on a pink spinning rod I made her this past summer since I like going back to Chicago to see family.



    Next is Michigan where I lived 15 years in the Southeast and West sides of the State.

    Huron River in Ann Arbor. Some great small mouth fishing just upstream.



    Au Sable near Grayling Caught some trout here my first summer fly fishing.



    Next is the Northwoods of Wisconsin and the UP, where I've spent a lot of summers.

    Here is a beautiful little fish from a tiny spring creek near the Wisconsin / UP border.



    And the moon over the lake in front of my in-law's cabin



    And finally, Colorado!

    Heading down from a cutthroat lake



    September on the Arkansas South of Leadville



    Here's Cheeman Canyon, small flies and smart fish. A very beautiful place.



    One of my favorite spots for a few hours fishing close to home



    Lot's of pictures! Thanks for looking.

    Yes indeed it is the same river!

    My good buddy Dave has been guiding up there for over 20 years, some of the most scenic smallmouth water I have ever seen and the fishing isn't half bad either

    Didn't make it up there last Summer, really miss it!

    I would argue your stuff is just as good "if not better" buddy!

    While I have a DSLR now, some of my favorite photos I have taken were with a cell phone and/or point and shoot.

    The best part about photography is, a good landscape can make a regular guy take good photos, my philosophy is, if you take enough shots, your bound to get lucky every once in a while.

    That is a fun float!

    That trib. does have some natural reproduction of migratory Trout & Salmon in it, but no longer really supports any resident Trout in recent shocking surveys. When I was a young kid, we caught Brown Trout in it, but then a bunch of housing developments were built near its headwaters and it became about half the size it once was, sure all those homes lowered the water table just enough.
