Re: New Guy From Colorado

Welcome and yes you have a great location to live and to fly in! I'm a CSU grad (1992), loved Fort Collins and of course, the fishing ain't to bad up north of you.

Re: michigan in June

Lots of great advice, I would also suggest the Manistee and Pine rivers near Wellston, Mi. Great fly shop in Wellston and they have rooms to stay in as well (Schmitt Fly Shop).
