The Wyoming weather is "extreme!"  There is a saying here that states, "If you don't like the weather wait 15 minutes."  The temperature can literally drop 30 degrees in a matter of minutes.  So you have to be prepared for most anything.  It has been known to snow on the 4th of July.  In 1989 the first snow of the fall season was August 19th.  It is always best to have too much and shed clothes than not enough!


I really like fishing with Bamboo Rods as well as graphite.  If you are interested in some excellent Bamboo Rods  check out the following sites-
