800 Miles, 5 Rivers and Countless Memories!


 
Time for a Road Trip!
 
This trip had so many part to it I had to break it into a few different postings. One great part about living in this great state is that fact that we have so many great rivers to choose from. I'm all about taking advantage of that as well as timing the best BWO hatches around.
 
When targeting big trout a few things have to happen. One of which is find the best rivers to hit, next is to wake up early enough to not only keep the crowds away but most importantly, stealth mode for the big ones before it gets too light out. Use the right equipment from 5 weights to my top choice, a stout G loomis 6 weight to limit any chance to be worked over.
  
 
 
 This guy wanted nothing to do with me and after a quick picture, it was time to keep em wet with a gentle release. Time to fight another day!
 
 
 
 
 
 Looks like I had to share the river today, I think the right away went to this local jack ass.

Colorado Spring Trout at it's Finest!


Rockies Rainbows!
 
 
When April comes around I have only one thing on the brain, it's time to hit some Tail water for some incredible trout fishing.
 
Nothing like a 5 day hall pass to explore new water, follow the flows and get in as much fishing as humanely possible. It's too early for run off to begin so with a little careful planning, it's time for some trout water that did not include hundreds of other fisherman to make this a little more enjoyable.

 
 
Can you say red stripe delight! I sight fished this beauty for hours before he decided to take a #24 zebra midge. The fight was on, after numerous boulders & obstacles I was able to get him to the net.
 
 
 
Snow one minute 75' the next

Escape to Montana’s legendary Bighorn River with Rich, a fly angler and hard-rock miner from Billings who works hard to play hard no matter the season. He understands what it means to be a contradiction, and his story highlights the nuanced relationship every angler has with the river. At the end of it all, though, Rich understands one vital truth about his identity. He’s a fly fisherman, just like the rest of us.

Bonefish and Tarpon Trust Organization



BTT's objective is to protect and enhance critical flats habitats, reverse the decline of flats species, and use research findings to influence policy, educate the fishing community and improve resource management for long-term stewardship.

BTT has many ongoing and completed research projects and initiatives that have achieved significant results in our efforts to learn about, protect and restore bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries and habitats. Very little was known about the three species when BTT was founded, and scientific results from our efforts are critical to informing fisheries management and educating the public.

BTT has provided funding for and conducted projects that have provided information essential for conservation and led to a number of tangible conservation outcomes.
