    Default Landon Mayers Pets

    I promised Landon's Pets to silvertip8k well Today was the day
    I knew what today would hold ..A cranky Yat and a butt load of fish..
    For some reason I am not considered legitimate,as a fly fisher in most Colorado Circles...What ever..
    25 years boys,,25 years of doing this thing we love..25 years of catching and releasing food, that would make Gandhi ask "Umm ..Steve..ya think we could fillet one of those?"
    25 years of TROUT..when I started on forum's I thought it would be a neat way to introduce people to Fly Fishing..Man was I wrong..LOL I so don't want to go there..any way

    DANG OLD KINGS PHILOSOPHY..Fish are a resource that "MIGHT" be renewed..over time..I view them as ART.. Not Food..I live my Trout Life accordingly..
    That's all I have to say about my philosophy..and with That...Landon Mayer's pets...

    You know your a Trout bum when you lie to your wife about fishing.. I did not tell her what I was doing today. I cleared it with the boss a week ago..
    I knew the Art show would drive me too the river ..and it did..I invited everyone ..The only Forum guy to say yes was Yat.. I kind of wished he would have told me what a giant pain in the butt he was going to be cause I would have made it to the river 40 min earlier.. and not have to listen to the whine of a grown ass man.. Oh well.. We all have bad days.

    Not me..I tried to send Coloradonative some live updates but my phone crapped its pants ..so here are the pics I tried to send Mike

    You fellers in the springs sit at Heavens Door Way.. The Peak was encircled with a cloud that made it look Pompeii ish.. so freaking cool
    My 1st fish

    After this guy it was OFF THE HOOK for the next 3 hours.. sick.. is what comes to mind.
    I lost Battery power bout 5 fish into it, your just gonna have to trust me on this..The last Picture is confirmation..Hope Bob sends it...
    FOOD

    Yeah no giant buggers.. no Cast masters.. No streamers..These fish were focused on That.. #20 midge
    This little fella was one of 30..DOK wisdon Follows..if your catching small fish..work the hole a bit longer..a monster usually lives there

    My advice ..I listen to it..The next few fish worked the line & stick.. .. 15 to 18" in size and just so much fun



    This last one is amazing but I'm at the will of Yat for the pics..







    I had an amazing day it was fun to the enth degree..
    All the best to my fly fishing brothers

    Thanks guys.. I fished it a few day before at the elevated rate of 149cfs todays # was around 61cfs and it was Gin clear as it always is in the winter.
    Much colder than my last outing too. High temps today would be around 36 deg. Coming at noon,I still battled ice in the guides all day.I kind of had an unfair advantage today I knew exactly what the fish were eating, There was no discovery period as most cases on the water. I tossed a Red Rojo a Zebra midge and a third fly I created out of Gliss Gloss, green dubbed thorax with Olive thread and a black bead head on a #20 TMC 200R all below a strike indicator positioned about 2x the depth of the run. Which was a bout 50 yards long located be hind a nice line of rip rap that tumbled into a fairly deep pool.My 1st cast was crushed absolutely destroyed.
    I don't know if any of you know who Landon Mayer is.He's a local guide that catches nothing but pigs and this is his beat. I think the Kid has caught these fish a thousand times. He's such a nice guy I have met him several times and he appears to remember me each time. Nice guy! Any way I fish the Dream a lot now a days as my home water was destroyed some time back by the Haymen fire,and the subsequent flooding and runoff problems associated with forest fires. So each outing I discover new stretches of water new holding lies and just Giant fish. I walked about a mile of the river and found just a Swine of a brown darting in and out of a boulder field. I will get back to him in a few days..hopefully.. Thanks again for the kind words, this Forum is a class act. I moderated out the vulgar name I called Yat..He had a bad day and I was just trying to get a rise out of him..I like kicking a man when he's down makes him tougher..LOL Just kidding
    Tight lines all.

    King,

    I miss Colorado and a lot of other places, one of these days................. Always glad to hear someone doing what I want to, I just came in from cutting another load of fire wood

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
