  1. They are a bucket list fish for me too.....Even though I landed this one.......I've got 2 more chances this year....March and April. Hopefully I'll have a few more photos for you.
  2. I told you that in the shop when you came in to suprise me! 🤣
  3. You're off to a great start, guys! It was such a pleasure to help you along the way.
  4. My name is fairly straightforward. When this forum started up, I was in college and fishing down at taney a bunch. I would mostly night fish after classes, but also spent a ton of time fishing during the day. Many times while fishing at night, while waiting for the water to drop, or otherwise, I would take a nap on the picnic tables at the pavilion. I guess you could say that's when my trout bum days started. Mo-Trout-bum--a Missouri Trout Bum. I no longer live in Missouri, but I'll always be a motroutbum.
  5. I do still guide out here! September is a great time to be in the Rockies. Rocky Mountain National Park is a great place to spend time as well as fishing the Big Thompson in the canyon below Lake Estes.
  6. The entire stretch of the Arkansas River from Leadville to Pueblo (102 miles) is Gold Medal water now. No Bait.
  7. Lily Lake, Lost Lake, Ouzel Lake, Lawn Lake, Dream Lake, possibly the Big Thompson upstream of the Fern Lake Trailhead. The easiest place to try to catch one without hiking over a mile is Lily Lake.
  8. It hasn't been the same since the flood in 2013. It moved the river channel over 100 yards to the west and moved a ton of gravel and boulders down from above the waterfall. Before the flood you could catch a ton. Now, not so much. With runoff right now, it's not fishing very well.
  9. Not sure how long its been since you fished in all of those states, but the following states currently require your SSN to purchase a fishing license: Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Washington, Utah, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia.... I know I'm missing a couple, but those are the states I can think of off the top of my head.
  10. SS# has been required in Colorado for a good number of years. I think there are about 18-20 other states that require it as well.
  11. Hi Snagged, I was the host of the trip for an outfitter. I work for Front Range Anglers in Boulder. We take 8-10 hosted trips a year, but if you want to get down there, send me a PM.
  12. It's not bad actually. It's a flight to Honolulu from where ever you are, then a 3-hour flight from Honolulu to Christmas Island. The one and only flight (on a 737-200) that Flies to Christmas Island leaves on Tuesday. It returns on the following Tuesday. It's about 1500 miles due south of Honolulu, and only about 150 miles north of the equator. At night, you can actually see the Southern Cross and the North Star at the same time.
  13. Technically there are 2 Islands called Christmas Island. This Christmas island, (Kiritimati), is in the Island Nation of Kiribati which is 1500 miles south of Honolulu. The Christmas Island with all of the land crabs is off the coast of Australia.
  14. Triggers are extremely difficult to land, but man they are addicting...
