1. This has to be one of my favorite pics of the trip. Morris hooked up on the Gunnison River. Thank you for an amazing vacation Capt. Even though we had to cut it ...more short so you could get back to Florida and take care of things, I will cherish every second of it. All of our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I can't wait to do this again with you for the next 20 years! Thank you Brother! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

  2. At one point, while Morris was hooked up, I could see 4-5 trout in front of me, and very close as they were eating the insects on our waders. I grabbed my net and ...more put it in the water by the toes of my boots. Morris saw what I was doing and started to chuckle. Luck was in the bag as I slid the net under one and lifted! BAM, caught a trout with no hook! DOUBLE in the nets! 🀣🀣🀣🀣 And more unbelievable...... I did it TWICE! I couldn't stop laughing the whole time.

      My son was 6 saw a 34” pike and asked if he could use the trout net to catch it. I said sure never expecting him to get it. Biggest fish we caught all week!!!
    6. That’s awesome never had a opportunity like that!
    7. Lol GeorgeπŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
    8. You will never do that with carp
    9. BAHAHAHA Trout Whisperer! 😏

    15. Now that’s truly sight fishing at its best! To spot and time that catch is extremely difficult! Double trouble for those trout with your guy’s versatility! πŸ˜œπŸŽ£πŸ»πŸ€™

  3. After a few days in Colorado, we headed South to New Mexico to fish the San Juan River where my professional guide, Morris, put me on my first "nice" ...more trout with the fly rod. We got to our spot on the river, Morris instructed me what to do, and on my second drift, I hooked up with this "humpy"! It took a whopping TWO MINUTES of fishing to get it hooked. What can I say...... When you have a guide like Morris, you WILL catch fish!

  4. You may recognize the gentleman in the bottom of the photo. We met up with Bryan Harper to fish the Gunnison River. Believe me, I tried my best to get a hookup ...more this day, but it wasn't in the cards. Good thing they brought me along as their photographer! 😁 The second day was better and I landed my first Gunnison trout. Morris has most of my pics on his phone, and we'll be seeing more of me after he gets things in order in Florida.

  5. Morris and I had this trip planned well before hurricane season was upon us. Last week we met in Denver for my first fly fishing expedition. After a hiccup with ...more the first rental vehicle, which put us 5 hours behind schedule, we made it to our first destination and settled in for the night. Sunday morning we headed out for my first time with the fly rod. I would like to say my first fish was a monster,.... but no, the fly Gods blessed me with a Chris P trophy! πŸ˜†

  9. Yesterday was the last day of fishing with my dad and brother for this vacation trip. Bite was slow at first. Was tough to find the Eyes. At least the perch filled ...more in the gaps.

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
