Monsters in Wyoming…

Monsters in Wyoming…

South Central Wyoming saw an influx of monsters in the past few weeks.  Reports of these usually large creatures were all over Facebook and Twitter and are quite remarkable to comprehend.

Seriously though I have made two trips to Horse Creek Ranch, just 30 minutes from Cheyenne, and had some of my best days ever fishing for trout!  First trip was with long time friend, Bruce Byington, who asked me to meet he and his wife on their way back from a road trip.  Mary and I gladly met Bruce and Margie and spend an amazing afternoon and morning fishing the world class waters of this 75,000 acre piece of heaven.  Mary and Margie didn’t fish but enjoyed the Rustic Elegance of the lodge and hospitality of the West.  Mary was officially “mad” at me for not having her up to the Ranch sooner after realizing it is NOT a “fish camp” but quite nice and comfortable.Bruce and I caught 40+ fish over 20″ in one morning and had a wonderful time!

Ten days later a new but FAST friend, Mark Conklin, flew in from Atlanta and we made the trek to Horse Creek early the next morning.  An absolutely spectacular day ensued with Mark and I landing some of the prettiest fish either of us have ever seen.

Fall colored Brown for Mark Conklin! Amazing!!!

Nice hefty Rainbow at Horse Creek Ranch Wyoming

Mark with ANOTHER spectacularly colored Brown Trout!!!

The star fly of the day for Mark was the Girdle Bug …in fact he fished the same one (1) ALL day long , never losing it or changing flies. We never could figure out what the Girdle Bug fly represents but after these tenacious hits we REALLY DON”T CARE!!!!

...the Girdle Bug was the fly of choice!!!

I don’t know the total but somewhere North of 50+ Rainbow and Browns were landed  from 18″ and up!!!

Mark and a Monster Rainbow! WOW!!!

Add to that more than 50 Brook Trout and it was a true slug fest!  Enjoy the pictures and dream at bit….
