  1. Happy Sunday!!! It was an adventure kind of day!! Almost got stuck and almost got skunked. 😅 First spot was fishy but we couldn't get them to bite. The second ...more spot I messed up so we went down the wrong trail, did some 4wheeling, and almost ended up stuck in mud. 🤷🏼 We found the right path but it was already later in the day and a nice little hike down. So, we went to my last spot in mind and I FINALLY caught my Fall brownie right at the end after what felt like 100th fly change! It wasn't the monster Brown I was hunting for but I'll take it! Also, I fell so much today. I already feel the bruises forming. Lol and don't get me started on the traffic down from the pass. It snows in Colorado people!

  2. No fridge hanger today and my timer selfies did turn out so great to show off this beautiful bow today but, do you see those fall colors!? 🍂😍 Hit some new sections ...more of river, focused on Euro nymphing and strictly threw streamers all day. I left my other gear at home to prevent me from going back to my comfort zone and while the day didn't start off too bad, it got so windy my hat kept flying off and it was me vs the wind instead of fighting trout.
