Average fish on Green River, spring trip.

A nice day in the ranch, Henry's Fork.

The wife always kicks my a$$, Upper Henry's.

Let's see some of your pics!

Great pictures. The first pictures yo will see are when a buddy & me rode into the mountains on horse and did a little stream fishing. I took the pictures of my buddy fishing. This little stream is loaded with 4-8 inchers and hit anything you toss at them. Makes for some good lunch during hunting season. The last pictures are of myself & wife on the South Fork. Hope you enjoy them.

Don't you have stripers and bluefish up your way?

Good advice,also find someone that knows how to cast and go to a local park and just practice your technique, I believe that is the most common problem for people just starting, it can be frustrating to try and teach yourself.
As for equipment I would say an 8' or an 8',6" rod in a 5/6 wt would get you started and maybe start with a double taper line. and don't practice on the pavement ! yes I have seen people do this and it is very hard on a flyline.
See if you have a "trout unlimited" chapter nearby, should be plenty of people there that would offer advice.

I was born here in the 50's. I've lived here all my life except for a few years after high school. I have spent a fair amount of time out of the country doing different things, but Alaska was my home base.

Since I was raised here, the long days and nights don't bother me, but it does bother a lot of people. I actually love the long days in the summer, I don't need as much sleep then and you can spend a lot more time doing whatever.

Where I work on the Arctic Coast, the sun just spins around in a circle during part of the summer...it never drops below the horizon. In winter we have some time where it never comes above the horizon.

Yes my wife loves it as much as me. We sometime will hit the Gros Ventre in the late afternoon because it is only 5 min. away, same with the Snake around here. I want to do more of the mountain streams this year, see more elk country and get some good fishing in at the same time.

Yes,but that is a different game. My step brother was into that, most every weekend he could get away. I was never impressed with salt water fishing.
