    Mr. Wiles,
    I have been wondering where you have been on this post. Those browns and musky’s you catch are amazing. Love your posts on your adventures on the river.

    First of all everyone has posted some nice fish. We just got home from two weeks in Wyoming. Many , many fish were caught in several different places. I must say my Mrs. of 37 years out fished me this trip size wise. We fished on our own. Here are two cutts. One from South Cottonwood creek South West of the Daniel Junction North of Pinedale. The other from the Upper Green up From Pinedale. Get this. Both on Pink hoppers. She is now a 8 plus year breast cancer survivor and tells me to tie her pink stuff. “Think Pink” she says,

    Mark,
    Will be glad to have you in my part of the Country. You have several options. We have some good fishing on public ground. Our four trout parks will be very crowded. There is some places that have wild stream born trout. You have to be pretty stealthy to catch them. Google up the Missouri Department of Conservation and work your way to trout. That will give you all options for public fishing. Now to private stuff. I know of two places. I became familiar with them from volunteering for Reel Recovery for men and Reeling and healing for women. Both of these are no cost to the participants. It is for those that have cancer either under treatment or recovering. I started helping after my wife went through breast cancer. She attend her retreat several years ago and is an eight year survivor. After seeing what the retreat did for her I knew I had to get involved. So one of the private places is called Rockbridge, http://rockbridgemo.com/ The fish there are pigs, deep bodied and I would say average 20″ plus. Hard running and jumpers, I’m talking multiple jumps. The other place is Westover, http://westoverfarms.com/ Fish are smaller here but a neat place to fish. Both places raise there own fish on site. Last week I was at both places helping out. I will try to attach some photos from the women’s retreat. I had the pleasure of “guiding” Sue from St. Louis. My wife took pictures at the retreat and said Sue and I made a good pair as she had lost her hair from her chemo. I shave my head. Hope I attached the photos right,

    For some reason I am having trouble attaching photos?

    Well here you go,
    While the wife and I were stripping small streamers for crappie on one of our local rivers this beast took my fly and us for a ride. No time for a measurement as you can see. Before I could do it out of my hands and back in the river.

    Guys I have the full package here. One of these pictures I suppose borders on spousal abuse? I am so lucky and I wish you the best,

    I love this thread and by all means teach her to fish. My bride of 36 years got started and is the best fishing partner.

    I have been to both stores. Like the one in Cody the best because of where it is. All in all they are about the same. Enjoy browsing and end up buying something every time,

    Finally had a chance to throw my hat in. Have had a pretty good couple of weeks with crappie. On the Sac River here in Missouri. Catching them on an epoxy minnow. Stripping it and also setting below an indicator. Did a step by step on another forum. Zach I hope it is ok to post the link, if not delete please. http://forums.ozarkanglers.com/topic/37975-a-good-day-for-a-tutorial-epoxy-minnow/ Here are some of the fish caught. First photo get to do the hat thing. Second photo crappie and a walleye before the fillet fest and then one of the good eats,
    Marty
    Oops looks like the photos are in reverse order as listed,

      You know the more I think about this post the more I would like to share what works for me here in Missouri. Mainly I work the smaller rivers working eddys but when the water is slower I can pluck them out of the brush. Besides crappie I catch now and again bass both black and white, walleye and some nice channel cat. My best flys are the wooly bugers (pink or red bead, white body, chartruse tail with a chartruse hackle), a streamer (think it is called an ASP?) and what I call an epoxy minnow tied on a jig hook.. Streamers and buggers I throw first cuz I like to strip and If they are picky the epoxy minnow under an indicator letting it drift into or over the brush.
     I have some photos to attach but when I do the attach thing it keeps asking to reattach for security purposes? What am I doing wrong? It has always worked before, (working now!)
