Mary and I had the opportunity to spend the day with couple of "newbies" that have been introduced to the sport we dearly love. Getting the opportunity to introduce Arden and Scott to the joys of floating and fly fishing Colorado rivers. Fresh out of flyfishing 101 classes a few weeks ago the two would put there newly learned skills to task.
The weather and fall scenery were nothing short of spectacular for this excursion. The Colorado River, below around State Bridge would be the spot, two rookies would lose the river virginity.
Scott shows his first official "fly rod caught fish, we have him hooked.
Streamers, nymphs and dries would all be in our arsenal through-out the day. We ended the day catching fish on the para-wulff, Purple Haze, Bugmiester . Just the icing on the cake.
Bluebird skies, willing fish and terrific guides made for a memorable day on the river. Just a few more weekends of quality fishing left. Get out there and enjoy.
