A Saturday in September: Fishing on the Snake River

September 21st, 2011

By: Macye Maher
Today Beckett (5) and I went with Scott Smith and fished from the dam at Jackson Lake to Pacific Creek.  It was epic.  A chilly wind and powerful sunshine created a decadent fishing atmosphere.  Beckett caught three cutthroat on a dry fly, all of which just surprised Scott and me to no end.  The cast grew better and better.  The first cutty took on a skating fly and the other two we watched very visual trout “takes”, and when we told Beckett to set, he did urgently.  He fought them well, and afterwards gave thumbs up and a smile.  He is a patient and happy angler, loves the boat and went barefoot the whole day.

Bighorn Sheep Hunt

October 18th, 2010

By: Terry Fieseler sheep-hunt2

The hunt started on August 15th with the opening of archery season, when I hunted with my longbow.   It was very hard to find rams in an area that I would have the chance to make a stalk.  The terrain was so steep and rugged with cliffs and rock slides.  At an elevation of 10,000 feet plus, it is extremely hard to get within my 20 – 25 yard range to take a a shot.  I was able to stalk 3 rams one day and closed the distance to 100 yards before the rams winded me and the stalk was over.  I had been climbing for over 7 hours at this point, sometimes using both hands and my bow just to stay on the cliff face… » More: Bighorn Sheep Hunt

Wyoming Voted One of the Top 5 States to Build Your Nest Egg

October 4th, 2010

For Americans saving for retirement, Wyoming’s loose tax code has helped propel it to the front of the pack.

Notably, residents don’t pay state taxes on wages or capital gains. Both of these exemptions allow workers to save noticeably more of their earnings. What’s more, even before the tax breaks, Wyoming residents have well-above-average incomes. For 2010, the state’s average per capita income is estimated at $45,584. Only five states and the District of Columbia have higher incomes.  Read the rest of the article HERE.  To view Wyoming properties for sale, click here.

Flying Goose on the Fly

August 30th, 2010

flyinggoosefish3Not too far from Jackson Hole, just passed Kelly, Wyoming, Alex and I had the privilege of fly fishing a majestic and intimate setting (Alex and John Turner have the Flying Goose Ranch listed for sale with our company Live Water Properties).  We drove along a curving road above the Slide Lake area.  As we descended down towards the Gros Ventre River, the warm breeze came in through the Ford windows.  We drove in through the gate and parked in a grassy pull-out to gear up.  The evening warm, we felt the sun and could look down into the crystalline water.  Were there trout down there?  Nothing seemed to move but when we began to fish the tides turned! » More: Flying Goose on the Fly
