LMF updates?

As the title says, are there any updates on the LMF. Last I read it looked like a lot of damage was done. I know the fly shop is gone and believe one more bridge got damaged or destroyed? Anyone...

Re: Gunnison Trip Report

Thanks everyone. The fishing was pretty good this trip. Weather was excellent. Stream flows right now for the Gunnison area are great for wade or float fishing.

Re: Animas in Durango

Walk Duranglers and visit with them or call them before you go. Special stretch personally for me where you will be fishing. Caught my first trout on a fly on the bank below the park.

Re: Two flies my 5-year-old designed!

This is so true. If you want to try something different next time, take them to the stream with you and have them help you catch some of the bugs we use to fish with. Bring minnow nets and small cups...

Re: west elk wilderness

In "Elky" areas, almost any hopper dropper would work well. I like to throw an Adam's Irresistible or size 12-14 black mayfly and then have a dropper 12" down consisting of a small Hare's ear, CJ,...

Re: Flies for Rio Grande near Creede?

I would also add hoppers to the list. Saw a bunch of them last week while we were there so they are already out. They are easy to tie so I wouldn't buy them if you tie any flies at all.

The question is a good one!

I can say caddis, mayfly, stone-fly when I see one but that is about the extent of my bug knowledge. Having somewhat limited bug knowledge forces me to do the two...
