My first attempt at a fishing "short".

Tuesday, August 30, 2011


Have I really been gone this long?  Did I really miss all of June, July, and almost all of August?  Goodness.  Where has the time gone?  I know...  I've been busy as a bee behind my desk at Jones Law, P.C., and when I wasn't there, I was fishing...hard.  The Yellowstone is rockin' and rollin' and hopper season is in full swing.  Kyle Nelson and I floated it this last Sunday and had some luck.  Small brown foam hoppers about half submerged was the trick...and as always, we were pounding the banks.  That is the best way to fish that river, fyi.  If I'm nymphing I try to fish the banks in about 8 to 10 feet of water, near the bottom.  I like to position the boat about 30 to 40 feet from the bank and let my strike indicator reside just where I can no longer see the bottom.  Kyle and I didn't have much luck with nymphs though, which was strange.

Now that I remember how easy it is to post on this blog, I'll do a better job.  Right now we're reloading our office software and installing a new server, so things are at a standstill here work-wise.  The next post will be easy nymph rig're going to love it.  I hope you have all been fishing and catching and enjoying the last remnants of a great season.  Fall is coming soon, which means for great fishing!  Fish On!
