Leyther is on a distinguished road
Default Five days, three rivers.

This is the beginning of my first full season of fly-fishing and while the catching of fish has been scarce the enjoyment has been in abundance.

First off my partner and I hit the Deckers area of the South Platte with our guide Pat Dorsey from the Blue Quill in Evergreen.

We then traveled north to the Big Thompson, it is an absolutely beautiful river and a great journey.

Finally we headed to an area of the Blue River near Frisco and Breckenridge with another guide from the Blue Quill, Ralph Merrill. This was an early start and the day was rather cold and damp and the river was pretty fast in places.

We have at least three more trips planned for this summer: a four day adventure to the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork river near Basalt. Then another four day hike/fishing trip in the mountains south of Gunnison in Saguache County and finally we will be heading to Durango and the Animas River for five days in July/August.

Looks like great fun.

Make sure to stop into the Taylor Creek shop in Basalt for flies and info, and to wade the Roaring Fork carefully. That river is aptly named!

Leyther: Looks like you are starting out in fly fishing correctly, can't get any better guide than Pat Dorsey! The Deckers is truely a beautiful piece of Colorado. You will also enjoy the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork rivers, couple of my Colorado favorites.

FrankB2: Pat Dorsey has a book out on fishing the South Platte that has some gorgeous pictures, and it will definitely get the juices flowing for a trip to the Rocky Mtns.
