Being a huge fan of the Amy's Ant it was a pretty cool when Mary and I finally got the chance to meet up with Jack Dennis and spend a few days talking fly tying, swapping fishing stories and of course wetting a line on some of Wyoming's fabled waters.
With the Amy'a Ant being one of my favorite summer time fly pattern, it certainly was fantastic the be fishing out of the back of the boat when the first nice buttery brown rose up and inhaled the olive Amy's. I had the great fortune of telling Jack about one of my photo's that is in a year round display, called "Amy's Army" pictured above.
The trip of two days was nothing short of spectacular, as we fished sections of the upper Green River , that most do not, and the New Fork. Browns and rainbows that do not get streamers and dries casted to them by once or twice a year, if that. Oh, did I mention, the New Fork, crazy nice, beautiful and holds some very nice trout. The moose a plentiful, so one must be careful as you take quite turns on the river bends in the boat, as not to spook them, but so breath taking to see them up close.
Mr. Jack Dennis
Although not on an Amy's Ant, this beauty did scarf a Sz.18 Para-Ant.
