Well the Jack Dennis guide service email has changed once again and the shop will have a new location this summer. The new web address is www.jackdennisfishingtrips.com and the new location is to be determined. If you go to www.jackdennis.com nowadays it will redirect you to the Jack Dennis Sporting Goods website. I'll let everyone know the new shop location once everything gets sorted out this winter.
On a lighter note, the skiing here has been pretty epic as of recent. We've gotten pounded by a couple major storms and everything has filled in nicely. Hopefully, if you're a skier, you'll be able to make it out this year.

My girlfriend flew into town this weekend and I convinced her to go out and do some fishing with me. We took the dog and my buddy Greg with us and ended up having a really good day. It was nice and sunny but pretty darn windy when we got to the river. This made for tough casting conditions, but the fish were on the feed so all was good. We landed good numbers of decent sized fish, no real monsters, and got into some neat sight nymphing situations. Here are a few pictures from the trip; we had to get a little creative when hauling the boat out though. The ramp was too icy to back down so I had to hookup and old climbing rope to drag the boat up the ramp.
Right now we're getting one heck of a winter storm here in Jackson. The system has dumped 3 feet in less than 48hrs and is still going. That will probably turn off the fishing here but at least we've been getting in some good skiing. I'll try and report on the skiing again here before too long.

Fishing in January is not something that we are accustomed to in Jackson, but with the lack of snow we've had this year a number of boat ramps are still open. Yesterday a couple buddies and I thought we'd skip the skiing and go fishing. The fishing turned out to be excellent even thought the weather was cloudy and cold. It was pretty much all nymph fishing but the fish were active and in great condition. One of the browns I caught actually jumped a couple of times which is pretty unusual in the middle of winter. Hopefully we get some more snow here but if we don't at least we'll have some good fishing.

Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope everyone had a good new year. I personally did not get to do any fishing or skiing, but I did do a lot of family related traveling. The skiing is finally starting to get a little better around here. We just had a storm roll through and dump 3 feet of snow on us. This has helped to improve the skiing, but has made the avalanche conditions extremely dangerous.
Here are a few pictures from the flight back up to Jackson. I've flown into a lot of different airports around the world but I have to say that Jackson's has to be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. I took some pictures of the Tetons, one of the snake river, one of Jackson Lake, and one of a special little fishing location that I like to go to in the summer. If you can figure out what piece of water this picture shows you can find some big browns that hardly ever see any pressure.
Hopefully I'll get some more skiing and fishing in here soon and will be able to post a little more often.
