Has anyone fished the Tetons in Spring? The Snake and its tributaries? Is April too early?

So many questions...

We camped at Gros Ventre in August (not fishing) and are eager to get back.

Just about every fly shop can help you with the flys for their area. A bit of research on dry flys, nymphs, and streamers helps so you understand what is happening. Watch a few videos on fly tying. The good tyers spend some time on why they are making the fly the way it is constructed.

Presentation is supposed to be key. A lot of bad flys will get a hit if they are presented correctly. That would be in front of the fish's nose in a natural fashion with no drag. A lot of good flys don't get a hit because the fish are feeding on something specific and the fly is not to their taste. That is where the experts get hit and the flailers get to watch.

It does help a lot to get good local info. I picked up a guide book that had interviews with about a dozen different guides. I am convinced that you can learn a lot from a guide if you are willing to listen and try new approaches. I am also convinced that you can have a lot of fun and catch a lot of fish without ever even watching a guide. It's all in how and what you want to learn.

Part of fly fishing is a zen kind of experience. It can be an emotional escape that lets you develop a mental focus that moves you away from the day to day stresses that wear us down. It helps a lot to not keep score and to be in it to have fun.

Hope you find time to give it a try. Stay dry and safe. Pat
Thanks Pat:

Actually had an opportunity to give Fly fishing a try. My son took me fishing (with a guide) as a birthday present for a few days in the Canadian Rockies - WOW what fun. To say I'm hooked would be an understatement! Even caught (and released) a few fish..... Doesn't get much better than that.

Now I cannot wait to get south this winter to try my hand at some southern spots. A meet-up with other Airstream folks would be fun also if others are interested.
