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.

Re: How do you identify the bugs ?

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...

Re: heading to Roslin, CO

You are 5 minutes from the Blue river. Use the 4wt. Keep to the banks as the flows are really strong right now. Cutthroat anglers is a good resource.
