Small creek fishing

If you look down on the right hand side of the blog here you will notice a link to another blog called "Utah water Log." That blog is ran by a feller named Justin, and he also go's by Loah. Justin fishes several small streams all year long and tends to do very well, so I decided to try a small stream just to see if I could come as close to as lucky as he always does. Granted Justin could go dig a hole in his back yard, fill it with water, and 2 hours later pull two trout out of it.

I started by fishing a small piece of water close to town. When i got to something that looked fishy i started swinging a small streamer through it. This was the small fishy piece of water i started at

I immediately started to get into small 6 to 10 inch browns. Once I let my streamer swing even deeper under the brush I was greeted with this chubby little guy

After several aerials I was able to get him in. I worked upstream some more and was greeted by this dark brown
 That was sitting under a sunken tire. He still has a small kype on him

I did happen to go duck hunting this week, but it turns out I can not hit the broad side of a barn so I guess I will have to go again next week.

Some fish and a gun

I have been spending alot of time up on the river doing as much fishing as I can. I have not caught any show stoppers yet but the fish that have come to hand have been slamming the streamers I have been throwing at them

The above fish was about the smallest, and below was the run of the mill average sized fish

And finally I needed to get the wife a new shotgun since I am going to get one, so thanks to our awesome Uncle Dan, she received this wing master 20 gauge. This will be great for birds and rabbits!

Now it's time to start doing some duck hunting, more to come!

Another great weekend

Myself and a couple of buddies took a small trip out east of us and did some river fishing. The river was in fantastic shape, though a bit low, but still kicked out quiet a few fish. Nothing out of the world big but fun none the less

We were able to see some great wildlife as well. In the first picture below if you look hard enough you can see a moose on the opposite river bank up a ways, and the second picture contains the worlds most pissed off (at me at least) river otter.

After several hours of fishing and several fish to hand we called it a night. The next day we headed to a favorite area of mine and did some small stream fishing and made a quick stop another place

at the end of this little creek we came across one heck of a surprise  a newly constructed beaver dam, which I thought I took a picture of but must not have.

The other little place we stopped at kicked out a few nice fish, as usual, for us before we took off for home.

More fishing to follow soon!

Time for a trip

I am finally able to start planning outings again, since I will be home next month. First trip of my return; A Section of the Green River. I will have a few friends joining me, unless they flake out which I doubt. Looks like I will be running the sticks on the drift boat....again. That's fine it will be an enjoyable trip none the less

Practice makes perfect, right?

So my wife hurt her knee and is in the process of getting it fixed. You would think that would keep someone off of the river, or down in the dumps because she is not able to toss bugs right? Not her, she will want something to pass the time until we can chase browns this fall so I got her the PractiCaster from Orvis. She does not know it yet, and the only way she will find out is if she visits my blog. Hope you folks are catching big fish!

You can find the PractiCaster at Orvis, not expensive at all, see the link below:

Finally something worth seeing

I was out and about this evening doing what I do and was stopped by this sight. After all is said and done, all the bull shit we go through on a daily basis we were finally able to stop for a second and take this in and relax for a few minutes. Odd how the small things sure do make a day end on a positive note.

Promoted and some flags!

I had the great pleasure and honor of being promoted yesterday

I also had the chance to get some US Flags flown for some folks who are sending over care packages. These guys are constantly asking if I need anything while I am gone, I figured this would be a great way to thank them for the stuff they send and the help that is available if needed. Here are a few of their flags below.


And to think in a few short months I will be back home fly fishing, can't wait!

Care Packages!

We have recieved a few care packages from a few members of forums I visit. The first care package we recieved contained a fly rod, reel, line, backing, tippet, etc. we got this from our buddies over at the Gut Pile you can visit them at:

We also recieved a gigantic stack of magazines from Jeff & Laura. Jeff frequents the Colorado Fishing Forum. You can visit them at:

Missing the fishing!

While we can not make fishing posts for a couple of months I figured I would post a quick picture from over here. This is me and this is what I do from day to day. This is a picture one of my awesome team mates over here took.
