Rocky Mountain National Park

My buddy John, from KC, and I made another trip to RMNP. We arrived in Estes Park Saturday evening and, just for fun, fished around the Fall river behind our condo for an hour or so.

Sunday we met-up with Zach, aka zjory, and fished the Moraine area. Water was a little high and running pretty good. Also vegetation was thick and, unfortunately, John tripped on a hidden branch and broke his 3wt, and had to hike back to the truck to get my back-up rod. Several browns and brookies

Southern Missouri Flooding, May 2017

by spm on 05-01-2017 at 11:36 AM
I've been away for a couple days, so don't know if anyone has posted about the flooding in Missouri. It is devastating. A state of emergency has been declared.
Please keep everyone down there in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks,
steve

My father's fly rod

by spm on 04-30-2017 at 03:13 PM
My father passed away three years ago at the age of 97, and he was a fisherman. When he died, I ended up with some of his fishing equipment. I have been thinking about him and the fishing trips we made and thought I would like to share some pics of his rod with you all.

He had one fly rod. My mother bought it for him as an anniversary present in the late 30s or early 40s. It is a Montague, Pelham Brook, split bamboo, 9' 3/4 (That's right, 4 tips), and she probably paid about $6.00

Bennett Spring State Park, MO

by spm on 04-30-2017 at 03:12 PM
I know I usually write about the Current River and Montauk State Park here in Missouri, but we have several very nice trout parks. Yes, the trout are pond raised and stocked, but can still be fun and a challenge to catch.

But back to the title of this post. Bennett Spring is also located in the Ozarks, on the Niagua river. Like the Current and other streams here, it is spring-fed, so the water is cold and clear. As a park, I think Bennett Spring is superior to Montauk. It is
