Fall Fly Fishing in the Rockies

In Colorado we're blessed with miles and miles of streams and rivers full of trout. I've been exploring some of those miles of water this fall and have been rewarded with beautiful days and fish – browns, rainbows, brookies and cutthroats. Fly fishing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors because it allows you to truly immerse yourself in nature by standing in cold moving water, feeling the breeze and waiting for fish to rise to your fly. For me, there is nothing quite like it. I don't get too concerned about the size of the fish or how many I catch, I just like being on the water. Because I fish alone much of the time, I carry a camera so I can 'bring my catch home' with me. It's always nice to share fish stories, especially when you have the photos to prove that the big one didn't get away. Every catch is different, every fish is different and each situation invokes its own unique memories that can last a lifetime. Have fun out there, be safe and Leave No Trace...
