Fly Fishing Quotes and Sayings Featured Here Are As Follows (In Written Form)
“O, Sir, doubt not that Angling is an art; is it not an art to deceive a trout with an artificial fly?”
Fly Fishing Photo 1: This is an image of my Dear Ol’ Dad. He is responsible for my deep love of fly fishing and my serious case of F.P.I. Dad taught me how to dry fly fish in these mountains of Wyoming. Here he is casting with his old Fenwick rod to several very eager Brook Trout and Cutthroat Trout. We were on the Wiggins Fork near Double Cabin and it was an amazing day.
Henry David Thoreau
“Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in…It’s thin current slides away, but eternity remains.”
Fly Fishing Photo 2: This is a photo I took of Leon S fly fishing on the Upper Wind River. Leon is one of the greatest fly fishing guides (and people) I know. The location was in the Town of Dubois, WY. More specifically, the Sawmill Access area. The time was early Spring. It was a very good day of nymphing on the Wind. PS: For those who know, the FULL Quote is this: Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
“Most fishermen swiftly learn that it’s a pretty good rule never to show a favorite spot to any fisherman you wouldn’t trust with your wife.”
Fly Fishing Photo 3: This is a picture of our dear friend Mary T from Casting For Recovery. She is holding up a lovely Brown Trout and that smile is beaming! As you can see, there is quite a bit of ice around. Wind River Winter fly fishing is good!
Vincent van Gogh
“If one really loves nature, one can find beauty everywhere.”
Fly Fishing Photo 4: I came across this lovely grouping of yellow wildflowers next to the outlet stream of Lost Lake in Wyoming. We were on the hunt for Golden Trout. This Lost Lake area was absolutely stunning. I simply named the image “Yellow and Blue”
Patrick F. McManus
“There is no greater fan of fly-fishing than the worm.”
Fly Fishing Photo 5: One of our favorite quotes around here. This is a nice Brown Trout. It was caught by our friend Nate Bennett. He is a Pro Fly Fishing Guide and primarily fishes the Snake River/Jackson WY area. Though he does come “over the hill” from time to time to fly fish the Wind River and other waters around here.
Henry David Thoreau
“Many go fishing all their lives without knowing it is not the fish they are after.”
Fly Fishing Photo 6: Another beautiful morning on Simpson Lake. This time it was misty, moody and mysterious.
“Game fish are too valuable to only be caught once.”
Fly Fishing Photo 7: Our friend and local Pro Fly Fishing Guide, Larry. He is hooked up with a wryly Brown Trout on the Wind River. You can see the Badlands in the background. This Brown went down deep, wrapped itself around a rock and sent 2 Anglers into the water going after him. Wet, cold and a few shivers – still, there were no frowning faces. Larry did land that Brown Trout.
“Heaven seems a little closer in a house beside the water”
Fly Fishing Photo 8: A Wyoming Sunset over the Upper Wind River near Dubois. Who doesn’t love a striking sunset? Especially while fly fishing. I was using a hopper-dropper set up and catching a few trout. The sunset and clouds were brilliant – so just had to stop and soak it in.
“If I’m not going to catch anything, then I’d rather not catch anything on flies.”
Fly Fishing Photo 9: This image features a quite colorful Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout (in the net). You can see I caught him on a small bead-head bugger. Late Spring fly fishing on a lake near Dubois, WY.
Vincent C. Marinaro
“In the lexicon of the fly-fishermen, the words rise and hooked connote the successful and desirable climax; landing a fish is purely anticlimax.”
Fly Fishing Photo 10: My friend and fly fishing nemesis Dennis K (wearing the straw hat). His rod is bent and he is hooked up with a Cutthroat Trout. We were dry fly fishing the South Fork of Fish Creek on that great Summer Day. I remember the mosquitoes did their best to bleed us dry. However, I remember the fly fishing experience the most.
Patrick F. McManus
“What A Tourist Terms a plague of Insects, the fly fisher calls a great hatch.”
Fly Fishing Photo 11: We were fly fishing in the Wind River early in the month of March. A small hatch of midges were coming off. One little guy was cruising around on the ice, near my fly rod.
“There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of mind.”
Fly Fishing Photo 12: I was on a fly fishing horse pack trip in the Wind River Mountain range. We camped on Simpson Lake. There were a few mornings that were exquisite, especially just after the sunrise. This was one of those moments. By the way, Simpson Lake did produce some incredible Brook Trout.
