Re: Orvis Fly Rod Sale - What's Up?

Regarding the Superfine- losing the gold/bling hardware would be a home run.

Re: How long does it take from your home to the water?

2 minutes to my local stream. A day to the one by our cottage in the Adirondacks. 4 days if I ever get home to Colorado.

Re: Artificial Flies and Lures Only

This is from the Trophy section of the West Canada Creek, in the Adirondacks. Power bait/worm containers/trash very much in evidence. I don't think they can make signs big enough to cover all the...

Re: Artificial Flies and Lures Only

The enforcement density isn't as much an issue as the communication problem. Mountain streams are generally in canyons. No cell service. I ran into a middle eastern- no not Ohio- family taking their...

Re: Artificial Flies and Lures Only

They don't care. I came upon two young guys fishing from the bank of my local C&R stream. They had a freshly cut willow stick with monofilament tied to the end. "Hi! Are you catching anything?" Yes,...

Re: You have to see one of these fires to understand.

Where we lived there's no fighting it. Ponderosa forest/canyons, one way in, one way out. On the edge of the Hayman fire, on the edge of the North Fork fire. We could have cut down every tree on our...

Re: You have to see one of these fires to understand.

It's one of the reasons we finally moved out of Colorado. They came too close last year, we had the cars packed twice, waiting for the call.

Re: Golden CO area report

No, we were married on the trail that runs along the creek, overlooking the spot pictured. Dec 2011, the bride and groom wore hiking boots and warm jackets. There was a fair bit of snow on the...

Thanks for the Bear Creek picture. My wife and I were married just to the right, overlooking my favorite stream.

Re: Uncrowded Fishing spots near Denver Metro?

Doubtful that the general population will see these posts and head for the hills with their fishing gear. Seriously doubtful.

Re: Uncrowded Fishing spots near Denver Metro?

Buffalo Creek- the water along 126 is private. North Fork downstream of 126 is fishable.
Turkey Creek- no. The district water guy says there are some brookies under/in the willows by Flying J on 73,...

Re: Remington 700 Rifle owners-Head's up.

As I understand it, it's the newer trigger design that has the problem. The article would have you believe that it's "all 700's made since 1962".

Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Be...

Re: Uncrowded Fishing spots near Denver Metro?

Are you looking for the small stream, wild brook trout experience? Upper Bear Creek, up in the Mount Evans Wildlife area. Bring your short rod and your camera. And your hiking shoes.
Edit- you...

Re: beavers!

They can sure screw up a stream, but I'd rather have them there than not. There was a distinct advantage in my little stream- there were always some very nice fish hiding in the sticks and logs below...

Re: Fly fishing tattoo

Cab, you did save yourself a lot of pain and a lot of money. A few years ago there were 75+ tattoo shops in Colorado Springs.

Re: Fly fishing tattoo

On a serious note- Runningfish, why does your wife object to your having a tattoo? Cost? What "other people" will think? I can't address the first, but as to the second- other people don't have to...
