Wyoming is such a bullshit place....but the marvin was good.


I think the "BM" on this mound actually stands for "bowel movement"; one of Franzen's, if I'm not mistaken...

Every April 1, the river closes for spawners about 30 miles up from the reservoir, and every year you hope your timing is just right with water color, fish, and such. This year I figured I would work on my spray pole casting while attempting to stick a few fish, so I snuck out after work a few evenings to see what I could do.

Image

The Luau Campsite is still there................

Image

The pup had fun......
Image

I saw some DSFK...........

Image

And I even swung up a whitefish.

Image

I went out the next evening and all I saw were bugs.........

Image

Some DSFK.................

Image

And a pretty good spot to toss a spray pole..............

Image

Not a bad evening at all.............

Image

I snuck out of work early on Friday to head up and visit Heero in his new town.........

Image

I don't think I would trust this glass dude.........

Image

I asked Heero which bobber preferred........

Image

He looked at me with disgust and offered me a tomato stake............

Image

I was a little worried when I saw his Pagan ritual site..............

Image

But he was too busy catching fish to try any weird stuff..........

Image

Meatball sub............oh yeah. Those are some great balls, Heero has.

Image

It was a great evening.

Image

I woke up to Manmosa, sausage, and eggs...........

Image

Checked out the place.............

Image

And loaded up to check out another river.............

Image

Image

Montana has some weird fishing rules...........

Image

But nice rivers..............

Image

Image

Image

I forgot my bag with my flies and good tippet material............so I broke off fish for two days losing what shitty flies I had with me, but I did manage a few.

Image

Image

If you ever come across this............fish that spot. Heero lost a really nice fish in this run.

Image

If you ever fish with Heero, you will notice that he wanders around looking at the sky a lot. He says that he is looking for birds, but I wonder sometimes.........

Image

I made it home and went up river to see if the fish have migrated above the closure spot.........it snowed on us.

Image

Image

Image

But was good for a spray pole..............

Image

Image

We moved spots..............

Image

Saw some signs of a struggle............

Image

Settled in............

Image

And got a grab.............

Image

Not a bad week.

The Luau was pretty fun -- I'm surprised no one showed up. Oh well, maybe next year.

Heero looks like he's lost 75-100 lbs!

The western USA seems to be working out very well so far for the lad.

That turned out much better than I expected, and I'm glad you lived to tell the tale.

When (if) he comes to the luau, you and Lurgee will have to introduce him to chicken-fried-chicken.

I can hardly wait.

I'll be there in less than a month for pre Luau (fried) chicken reconnaissance.

I had a bit of time off this past week and spent it out and about chasing fish. The first stop Friday evening was up the local. I had tied some stuff up in anticipation……..

Image

It worked………..

Image

The water was fantastic……………

Image

Image

Image

Took another shitty photo……..

Image

Wildlife…………..

Image

The next day we figured the local would be crowded as fuck, so we headed north and found brown water. It was right on the edge of fishable, but we decided to give it a shot. The least that could happen was that the trip would turn into a booze cruse.

Image

Getting ready………..

Image

A little help……..

Image

Not a bad place to float……

Image

Token DSFK………….

Image

Token puppy shot……..

Image

Chuck tossed streamers……..

Image

And turned a few……

Image

Image

We pulled up to lunch and Uncle Tom was whipping up some riverside French Dips……

Image

Image

Image

Not a bad day……

Image

The next morning we woke up to snow……..

Image

So I fucked around a bit to let it warm up. Once it did, I headed back up to the local and found a few………

Image

Image

Image

It was good enough to head back up the next day…………

Image

Image

Image

Image

A buddy called me that evening and wanted to do a float the next day. I told him it was a bit skinny and that wading had been just fine. So we opted for that…….

Wildlife………….

Image

Image

Found some fish…….

Image

Image

Image

Then I stuck one of the cleanest bows I had seen in quite some time…….

Image

Image

It was a good day.

We have a few boat projects happening around the house these days. The old boss traded a trip and a 8 wt. for this boat. The 55 hp Johnson fired right up.

Image

He stripped it down and is going to paint it and make a better deck system.

Image

So in order to make some room in the back, I needed to move the camper. So I figured that I would load it on the truck and head up the local for a couple of days.

Image

On the way up, I smoked a deer……………nothing happened to the truck……….

Image

However, the camper shifted a bit and was riding all weird……..so I fished and then went home.

Louie had fun…………

Image

Chuck got a fish……..

Image

I did too, but didn’t take any photos. When taking the camper off the truck, one of the jacks pulled away from the camper and almost dumped it on my head. I figured I would need to do way too much work to fix, so I am getting rid of the thing. Fuck it………..I will find another one that works better for me.

The Young Lass had some time off and wanted me to come down for a visit. Her sister is moving in with her and had some friends coming to help move. She wanted me to help take them down the river on Saturday once they were all settled in. On my way down, the puppy needed a break so I stopped at a spot I have passed a hundred times, but never checked out. Upon pulling into the parking lot, I noticed some of you bastards have already been there………..

Image

It is cool as all get out back there………….

Image

While the Lass was working on Friday, I went to swing a run…………

Image

I got a bump. The fishing was pretty good down there before I showed up…………then it got shit.

Image

This dude named Brian ended up in my boat. He had only ffished a few times, so we were down to limit out on smiles. Brian was pounding sticks……….
Image

I told him that one of those times, the stick was actually going to be a fish. He stuck five and landed one.
Image

On the way home, I found a solution to my camper problem………..

Image

Work is going to suck today.

Saturday I found myself working a 16 hour day, so Sunday had better make up for it...........

We decided to go explore parts unknown and check to see if the Slut should make an appearance at this new spot.....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We'll be back.
