26 Jul 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Native Lake Trip

Three Skunks and You’re Out

23 May 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

This past weekend I went to the famed Cheesman Canyon to fly fish the South Platte River. For the third time this year I saw many large trout and also for the third time this year I was skunked in the Canyon! It’s quite frustrating…

Not So Clear Creek

04 May 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin', Videos

Find the Fishy

03 Apr 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I went out to Clear Creek Saturday and the weather was just about perfect. 70 degrees, partly cloudy and just a slight breeze. I had a bunch of hook-ups but I wasn’t able to bring any to my hands. The fish seemed extra wiggly this…

Magical Mustache or Lucky T-Shirt

26 Mar 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'
