A story told through photo’s of a great trip in a beautiful place. I flew to Colorado and meet up with my friend Marsh Thomson. A retired veteran guide and now fishing tackle rep.We did over a thousand miles of driving in the five day trip to fish his favorite spots and as many great places we could. I hope you enjoy seeing the images as much as I did taking them! Enjoy
First off we stopped in Kirk’s fly shop for my waders and fishing license.
Hahahaha Had to take a pick,love the name. Don’t see that in Miami.
Next we stopped in Boulder Boat Works to pick up or boat for the first part of the trip.
Got a quick tour of how they build the best drift boats on the market!
The owner Andy gave us a quick walk through.
And we hit the road
Seeing new things
And new landscapes in Wyoming
First stop in Wyoming five hrs later was to set up our shuttle service for our tomorrow mornings fishing.
Check in our room and hit the water for a quick sunset trip to wet a line
We were hooked up instantly! Field testing out the new Hardy Jet 4wt. Sick rod!
Beautiful sunset rainbow
Yes after a little food we were back out fly fishing at night for trout!?! A little dangerous in the currents for sure but we did it.
Morning came quick and we were back at it ready to take on the North Platte river! Square anchors??? going to be interesting!
Never seen a drain plug like that and in the center of a boat! They call me a flat lander out here! hahaha
Got them to eat the hopper fly! Epic bite!
Sure didn’t expect to see white pelicans in Wyoming in a cold river!!!!!!
We took turns rowing and fishing
Caught a bunch and stopped in the local fly shop for some swag before we hit the road
Dropped the boat back off and drove through the Rockies
Ten hrs in the truck and we were on the Frying Pan river in Colorado night fishing again!
I don’t know why but I love this shot. Net looks so cool! More browns
The morning came quick again. A “PMD” Pale Morning Dun epic hatch was under way!
Big lid up “bows” were hungry!
rare green back cutthroat trout
Brook trout, that makes a grand slam on fly!
Beautiful colors everywhere!
MONSTER BROWN TROUT!
Epic Brown trout on the 4wt Hardy Jet we were testing!
the fly the big brown ate! #28 red midge! yes that is pinky finger it’s on!
The fly hatch was over, the googan hatch was not. Time to go!
Took a pit stop to walk as high as the clouds!
Some mule deer said hi
The last sunset of the trip was beautiful! Back on the road!
