    flyfishmaster reacted to Kayser in Quick post from CO   
    I'm in Colorado for my cousin's wedding this coming weekend. Since I'm making the trip, and had to take some days off anyways, I took the week.
    Picks from yesterday afternoon. River held browns and some type of cutthroat, maybe cuttbows. Missed far more than I caught, especially the cutts on dries.
    1.75 miles in, 800ft down- fairly easy. Racing the thunderstorm out- not so much. But I did it on under 30 minutes, so I'm kinda proud of that.

    Seth,
    It has been a few years (like 15 or more) that i have used a spinning rod in a trout stream, but have to say I have never seen any spin cast person come close the number of fish my father would catch down at Meramec.  The bait he used... crickets.
    In clear water, He would use 2lb test line, a barbless extra long sz 16 hook, one split shot and at times a cork.  Most days he would land 50-75 fish, and he never fished at the whistle.  I have not seen anybody else use crickets.  You might want to give it a try.

    Motroutbum,
    Thanks for the heads up.  Do you stay on the western side of divide or do you hit the east side as well?

    Johnsfolly,
     
    Sounds like you had a fun trip.  I look at fishing after catching the first fish... the rest are just a bonus.  But I do find it interesting that you have kept track of your catches, that is really interesting.  Do you also note any other details besides the number of fish?

    Ness,
    If the Montauk gage is a 3' it is fishable, but the water speed would be fast and the at some point you may need a good water crossing pole to make it across the stream.
     
    That has been my experience.    Also you can get away with throw some big streamers as well.

    flyfishmaster reacted to trythisonemv in Evolution as a fly angler   
    I am very addicted to fly angling these days and have enjoyed watching my skills evolve from a sloppy , fish spooking newbie to an accurate, educated fly fisherman . To really get into the science of trout and how they feed in the water column has been top of my list. I have studied hours of video and spent long days logging hundreds of casts on the stream to get to where I am. I am astounded every time I find new strategies or figure out how fish are biting on a certain Day. I have a desire to continue learning and to start sharing my skills with others who want to get into fly fishing. I have taken a few people out and have had the pleasure  of having access to this site and be able to post and give advice to folks. You're never to old to learn or except constructive criticism
