    I did fly fishing in Salt Lake City a year ago.

    Thank you for the helpful advice and input. My father is a former marathoner but at 73 he is slowing down. We are going to be staying at Healing Waters with a group of 10 and doing guided fishing. My girlfriend and I will be visiting YNP for the first time and there will be no fishing, just hiking and sightseeing.

    So far we are staying 3 nights in grand teton (at least one of those days will be spent in YNP) at Colter Bay Village. Then we are going to Old Faithful lodge for one night in the "old house" (it was all we could get) and three nights in Mammoth hot springs cabins. . . . . the last night I haven't been able to find a place yet

    This is still the best view in Eldorado Canyon. I fished and bouldered for a few hours this afternoon despite the 68 MPH wind gusts (wind speed reported in Eldorado Springs, just a little downstream of where I was fishing in the narrowest part of the canyon).

    Today, I caught my first trout inside the city limits.

    I spent a couple of hours today fishing new waters, close to home. It’s a gorgeous day here in the Front Range.

    My father has built his life around fly fishing and hunting and he finally extended an invite to me to what he calls "Tarpon Camp". Every April since '95 a bunch of his friends have descended on the Florida Keys to catch Tarpon on the fly. He had some guys drop out this year (some are getting pretty old) so I went. But I hadn't thrown a fly rod since I was a kid.

    So I took some casting lessons here in Pittsburgh before going and my teacher, speaking of Lefty Kreh, was good friends with the man and a student himself. Got to hear a few Lefty stories during the lessons.

    Anyway, I was down in the keys for 4 days and finally caught two Tarpon on the fly on the fourth. Super happy about it. I'll get some pics up soon. I'm supposed to be doing some smallmouth bass fly fishing with my teacher this summer.

    Fishing in downtown Boulder between groups of college kids tubing on the creek? Check.

    I really want to start fly fishing, however, I live in the West TX desert. It looks so fun though. I think there may be some spots in New Mexico that I could drive up to.

    Caught this beauty of a brown trout at about 9,000 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park. I’ve caught 8 today.
