I love the gear that Orvis puts out. While most of my gear is on the lower, or older end of the spectrum, I can still dream about owning one of these beauties!

My wife's family visited us for the first time during the summer, so we did a whirlwind tour of Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Park.

Each week, I'll link to 5 things that you should take the time to read during your morning coffee over the weekend. Enjoy!

  • Win a Vedavoo Tightlines Sling Pack - I used to work with Scott when he lived here in Wyoming. Great guy, and his growing company is fun to watch. This pack is on my wish list in part due to Eat More Brook Trout's review! (And the fact that they make a Lefty version!)
  • Small Stream Assault - Added this one, because this will be happening to us in about a month when my family visits! Wife, and my Dad will be taking on some mountain streams!
  • Kevin Proctor Fund - I'll let the site explain it, but the guy is genuinely a nice guy, and makes some beautiful rods. Also check out his site. His work was featured by the Denver Post for his military veteran rods.
  • Small Stream Addicts - New Blog that caught my interest and has been added to my blog roll.
  • Wild Trout do better than Stockers! - From the department of Duh! Wild Hoback River cutties doing better now that they stopped stocking the river.

Lost and Found on the Green from BLOODKNOTS on Vimeo.
The title for this movie comes from the fact that they had lost their camera on the river during this trip, only to have it returned by a stranger 3 months later.

  • Bear Cub Fire - This fire north of Brooks lake is quickly gaining ground. Thankfully it appears to be a natural start caused by lightning.
  • The Flywriter - Really, the Colorado Fly Fishing is just fine
  • Congrats Jen! - A very original way to get married!
  • River Damsel goes to Montana
  • When to drag a fly - Seems to be a popular topic as my current issue of Fly Fisherman also discussed this issue with hoppers on the Snake River.

Today's video is courtesty of Wyoming Game and Fish. With the new fiscal year upon us, they have launched a new program, titled X-Stream Angler. This new program is to promote their public access points where they have secured water rights to maintain minimum flows in streams. The idea is, visit 4 of these, send in pictures and get a certificate in return. Here is their first video on this new program, featuring the Sand Creek area in our northeast corner of the state.

Tight lines all!
