Re: Colorado in late July...
Thanks for the replies so far......when fishing new area's we do try to stop in the local shops. We will pick up a few flies, a new leader or two and maybe a logo hat. I don't know, maybe its just me, but I am not real comfortable walking into a local shop just to get local information and then not at least buy something. This is especially true when I am not hiring a guide, and odds are it maybe a once in a lifetime trip to that area. The other problem is I have more stuff than I can carry to the river or use already, and really don't need to buy anything to push into another pocket or fill a 6th fly box! On this Colorado trip, we really only have the 1 day -- if I had a typical 8-10 days it would be different.
