1. No painted nails and no fridge hanger but, it was a good day in the cold and snow!! I love this time of year when you can have the river all to yourselves the entire ...more day!!! 😍 And you get to play the fun game of "keep the ice off your guides". πŸ˜…

      πŸ˜‚ Thanks Robert! yeah Chris! We know how fabulous you and your feesh will look all perrrtied up. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ It's not my favorite game either but I will play. The ...more worst part was my net freezing to my holder so I couldn't pull it off by the end of the day. πŸ˜…
    5. there's something to be said about you guys all wanting to see me in pretty nail polish so badly... HAHAHA I like everything about what you're saying Elisa ...more except the icy guides...hate that game!
    6. awesome pic ,you look a little cold
    7. Awesome Elisa! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»Don't count yourself out for the fridge just because you didn't have your nails done. Chris made it! Lol😁😁😁😁😁😁

  2. 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!

    2. 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.

  4. 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!? πŸ‚πŸ˜ 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.

    5. Noah Shapiro 0
      lol you need to be careful the pinky outy technique works well on trout but it is one of the best ways to kill a bass mess it up: the fish are goners
    6. That's the "PINKY OUTY" technique! The complete opposite of Chris' "PINKY INNY" technique, where he sticks it up the fish's ...more ......😲😲😲😲😲!!!!!!!!! LMAO Sometimes I crack myself up! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

      I've been look for waterproof cameras and I asked Elisa what one she had. those photos better be good cause if not that's a huge waste of money lol. .PS ...more Elisa if you ever are planning on getting a new camera email me cause I would be glad to buy your old one off ya
    3. Ain't that the truth lmao!
    4. LMAO Kevin . Truth be told she would have to take the pic in the water of the trout only. If Elisa's in the pic the trout is completely secondary.
    5. Sweet bow to be honest the nails take away from the fish. It's just like bling looking at the nails instead of the fish sike!! Lol
    6. Nice 'Bow Elisa!! Terrestrial time rocks:))
