Default Looking for ultimate dry fly trip

My friend and I have been fly fishing Vail Colorado for several years. This year the fishing was very slow. In order for me to get him to try some place new, I need to find the ultimate dry fly fishing trip. I would be interested in hearing from forum members on the best place to fly fish on dry flies.

Thanks

Just go west a little ways and hit the Frying Pan. Dry fly fishing all year.

I second that! You also have the Roaring Fork nearby and it is a lot of fun to target the Green Drake hatch in July.

Kamchatka

Or if that's a bit much, I'd seek out a strong Green Drake, Hex, or Salmonfly hatch. If Caddis is more your style, the Mother's Day Caddis Hatch on the Arkansas is

If a mouse is considered a dry fly then I suggest the upper Alagnak River in Alaska around June 17th. There is some caddis action as well. Big post spawn Leopard Rainbows with their heads up. I also dig the Copper River late June as well. You can choose to do a guided or unguided float trip but the often **** weather can make this a bad option. I use to guide in the braids of the upper Alagnak at alaskatrophyadventure.com and run their guide school operation. If you would like a honest opinion of this operation I can give it.
