The Trout of 2011

The trout of 2011.....that I decided to take video of. Includes a 23" brown, 25" brown, 27" brown, and 28" rainbow. It was a good angling year. Happy Thanksgiving internets. Thanks for all of your support of YGF this year.

November Rock

Another entry in the Month + Rock series. On my first cast, I broke off the tip of my rod. Second straight trip with a broken rod. If you are counting at home, that is both of my rods. For the rest of the day, I threw awkward casts with a broken rod. It was worth it. Caught some nice Rock Creek browns on streamers and a cuttie on nymphs and streamers. Floating ice made it's presence known throughout the day in the middle stretches of the river. Winter is on it's way. As always, watch the video in HD on vimeo.

....as in, Madison. As in, mad brown trout. As in, thass some mad brown troutz fishin. Some fall fly fishing for the Madison River's brown trout. The browns were on the feed as evidenced by the 18 inch brown that had an 8" rainbow sticking out of it's mouth. We never found the monsters that the Madison is known for, but some solid fish between 16 to 19" were caught. Things also of note: I took a fall into the mighty mighty Madison and broke my 6-weight. There was some really good habitat immediately upstream of my position and I decided it was worth the risk of wading into some heavier current. I was wrong. I lost my balance, went to my knees (chest deep) and then to my face. Luckily I was appropriately dressed and had a change of clothes in the car. To add insult to injury, my trusty streamer rod was broken as I dipped my face into the river. Watch in HD on vimeo.

YGF interview with Chi Wulff

I recently did an interview with Mark from the Texas and Montana based Chi Wulff. They have been very generous with posting my videos this year and I was excited at the chance to be interviewed by them. They did a great job of covering the H.B. 309 - Stream Access madness of the spring of 2011 and they've been dropping some bomber friday feast recipes. See part one & two of my interview.
