Hey all,

I'd like to give a big shout out to vitesse304 for meeting up with me today on The Blue River in Colorado. He showed me a lot, helped me with my line management, showed me how to mend across currents, how to spot fish... and I know that's just scratching the surface of the knowledge he has. He was catching monster fish all day long.

I caught about 5 fish over the day and even landed a big guy!

Caught this little guy too. Actually I caught, like 4 of these today.

Nice!

This is a pretty great place. There are a lot of local boards around for all of us but i think there is more pure fly fishing knowledge on this board than any other i am a part of.

Well done on getting out there with a member and expanding your fishy knowledge. There are a few guys here i plan on meeting up with some day. Even if they are currently unaware of it. lol

Awesome to see that the Blue has some fish...and big ones. I am going to be fishing the Blue in the beginning of August with my soon to be Father-in-Law. I can't wait. Thanks for the pics.

"To go fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook, or with the shimmer of sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men - for all men are equal before fish."

Had a great time out with you Rick!

Glad I was able to get you into some fish! A little more practice and you'll land them all next time!

@cptxkirk
The Blue is fishing well and should all through the summer. A slight bump in flows will make the fishing even better and you can usually expect a few bumps mid summer which will help flush more mysis into the river.

This and other forums are great places to meet new people with common interests. Not too difficult to tell that most(if not all) who appear to be helpful here are wonderful people in person too!
