What do you consider getting skunked?

13 Aug 2017, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Is it considered getting skunked when you don’t catch any fish? Or is it considered getting skunked when you don’t have any takes? What if you have a couple fish on, but never land any? I’d venture to guess that most would say that if…

A Couple of Firsts

13 May 2015, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Two weeks ago my buddy Jason and I went north into Wyoming for quick fly fishing trip. This was my first trip to Wyoming and, although it was a short trip, Wyoming gave quite a good impression. Fast highways, low population, friendly people and incredible fishing! Our destination…

My Sweet Summer is Gone

24 Sep 2014, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

All winter I look forward to summer for camping and warm weather fly fishing. Pretty much every weekend was filled with one of the two or both. I had planned on posting about every trip, but between printing and shipping t-shirts, tying flies, and the…

Splish Splash See Ya

09 Apr 2014, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin', Videos

I took my 8-year-old fly fishing for a couple hours last weekend and we had a great time. We went to Bear Creek to see if we could hook up with a few browns and that we did. It’s a pretty small creek with a…

How Close is Too Close?

27 Mar 2014, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

When fly fishing here in Colorado on any waters that are less than two hours away from Denver you will often times find it to be a little crowded, especially on the weekends. That is why, when possible, I like to go during the weekdays….

Warm Winter Ride

18 Feb 2014, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Mountain bike from Savers: $25. Two bicycle tubes from Walmart: $10. Not catching a thing on a winter day: priceless. Sunday my buddy Esteban and I took a ride up Waterton Canyon to try our luck on the this closer-to-town stretch of the South Platte….

Stop and have a Beer

27 Oct 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

You’ve heard the phrase “stop and smell the roses” I’m sure. I’ve got a new phrase for you, “stop and have a beer.” Saturday I was able to spend a good part of the day at one my favorite places to fish, Cheesman Canyon. When…

Gimme a beat

30 Sep 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I recently went to a public stream that had four sections of water called “beats.” And the parking space you parked in determined which beat you were able to fish. This was the first time I have been to water with a setup like this….

Get Lost

21 Aug 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

A few weekends ago my buddy Esteban and I decided to go on a short backpacking trip in the Lost Creek Wilderness in Colorado. This area is pretty popular because it’s not too far from Denver and there is an abundance of hiking trails. The…

Free Camping, Fly Tying and Fly Fishing

29 Jul 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin', Tying Flies

The weekend before last we packed up the kids and dogs and decided to camp somewhere we had never been. We drove up north past the quaint little town of Granby to Denver Creek Campground. When we arrived we weren’t that impressed so we decided…

Camping on the Conejos

03 Jul 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Over the weekend the family and I went down south to meet my dad and his girlfriend for some camping and some fly fishing. Last year we had a great time camping right off the Conejos River so we decided to repeat. This year, like…

Rusty Dry Fly Action

23 Jun 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I went down to Bear Creek on Friday afternoon hoping for some dry fly action and action was what I got. Nothing beats watching a hungry fish attacking your hand-tied fly floating down the river! The small browns in the stream were keen on my…
