10-12-2010 Tuolomne Meadows, Yosemite National Park

One of the best things about fishing in a national park is the pristene beauty of the untouched wilderness. In October, I had the priveledge of visiting Yosemite for the first time. The granite mountains, the wildlife, the natural vistas were breathtaking. I found some fish there, too.

I'm not fishing this week, but, boy, I wish I was. I am going to be tying up some small (26) midges for an upcoming trip to Colorado. Near Denver is Cheesman Canyon, where the South Platte River meanders through one of the most beautiful canyons in the southwest. I've been there twice, and zeroed both times - the fish are wary, large, and fussy. The water is gin clear, but there are lots of riffles and pools...I'll keep returning there until I score. Nearby in Deckers, CO is the 'Flies and Lies' shop, great place to stop in and get gear, and the guys are helpful, too. I'm looking forward to going back there. Keep your rod bent....

9-30-10 audio post Yampa River, Steamboat Springs, CO

The Yampa River runs through Steamboat Springs, and you can access the river all through town in a park there. Beautiful, with classic runs riffles and pools, a great place to fish!

Not too far from Boston, almost in New Hampshire, lie several small but interesting streams to fish. I made a new friend at the Evening Sun Fly Shop in Pepperell, MA, Charlie Shadan.

Near Harrisburg, PA, a new place I hadn't fished before. Short drive, nice country, great stream.

One of my favorite places to fish, because of the beauty and technical nature of the fishing, is the area around Carlisle. There's the Big Spring, the Letort, the Yellow Breeches, and Letitz Run, to name a few. The fish are difficult to catch, because of fishing pressure, and each connection is a blessing.

My first comment post.  More to follow.

First impressions...

This is my first blog, so be kind.  I was listening to some voice memos I leave myself as I fish and travel, and thought maybe there are people on the 'net like me, that would like to hear my impressions of life, fishing, photography, et al.  I encourage you to check back occaisionally, but don't expect regular postings.  I do get to fish and comment at least a couple of times a month, so that is about the frequency you might expect.

Come along for the ride - it's sure good from this end.
