It won't be long now. I am starting to get the gear together for two weeks in the West Yellowstone area. The annual pilgrimage is less than a week away. I am tying flies during every spare moment I have trying to get the fly boxes in shape, but I think I am going to come up short as usual. Rod and reel selections need to be finalized, waders and boots need to be washed, and clothing has to be pared down to the absolute minimum to make room for more fishing gear.
This basically means I need to empty the back of the truck into a rolling duffle. N o easy task! As usual, I will pack to much, forget something important and I'll fish with the same six flies the whole trip. It happens every year!
