I spent the first day traveling (0430-1650est) and got in too late to fish. I sniffed around the Blue in Silverthorne and met a guy who was doing the same. I gave him some of my flies to try and in return he gave me a tall boy of Pilsner Urquell. That is good fishing moves!
Tom and I fished the Colorado, Blue, Roaring Fork, and Frying Pan rivers. The temperature was very cold with more snow as the week went on. The first day on the Colorado had temps in the single digits and my wet tube fly froze to my reel upon contact.
Tom took a nice brown on a Barr's meat whistle while I had several hits on my Bacon fly and tube flies. I had fun watching them chase and nip at my flies and not landing a fish was not a disappointment. We moved up to the toilet bowl just as the sun dipped behind the mountains. I put on a tandem mysid shrimp rig and while tying it up, a guy walks from below us and steps right in front of us at the outflow. That is bad fishing moves
Tom's wife Marla joined us for dinner along with some of the wife's friends. I then learned that Tom has been creating his own line of fountain pens and cigar punches. He never ceases to amaze me. You can now have a custom pen to match the custom reel seat on your custom rod!
I made my way over to what used to be called the BurgerBarn in Kremmling for some lunch, then drove back to Breck in time to meet some friends at Quandry Grille and then settled back at the house for a few drinks and a salad (??)
I also noticed today that the Fly Fishing FilmTour will be in the D.C. March 30.
