Fly Fishing in Wyoming

Today was the first full day of my vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  We went fly fishing on the Green River with local fishing guides.  Uncle Les and I were in the boat with Spencer who was a great fly fishing teacher (and could really rock a mullet).  He taught us all about dry flies and nymphs, casting and mending, setting your hook and reeling the suckers in.  We spent a full day on the river and I caught a total of 16 fish!... twice as many as Les, the runner up.  Spencer was great about showing us exactly where to cast our line to reel in the most fish.  The weather and scenery were perfect.  It was such a peaceful and fun day.  I wish I could do this every day!

"My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him, all good things - trout as well as eternal salvation - came by grace; and grace comes by art; and art does not come easy."


  1. You understand, I LET you catch more fish.

  2. Is that a creepy mask over Les' face? I just feel sorry for you that you're having to hear he and Dad talk non-stop about it now! Haha! Glad yall had fun!
    T is complaining of his hand hurting tonight because he caught so many trout today in CB! Oh, please!
