1. Anne got a 20" Yampa Rainbow on a lightning bug. She was scared to hold it out of the net for a pic. Scared of losing it before I could take the pic...LOL

  9. Happy Sunday!!! It was an adventure kind of day!! Almost got stuck and almost got skunked. πŸ˜… 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!

      Hey I wouldn’t have fall anywhere else but here in New England, it’s winter that’s a kick in the teeth! lol. I finally caved and started ice fishing last year, but ...more I think I would rather save up and come down for some guided fishing with you during that time, lol.
