Yep, tie my own flies too. Never seem to get out enough though...kinda like my four wheeling... :mad:

I posted a similar thread in the spring. Don't fish or wheel enough at all... I would like find a nice remote place to fish that requires 4x4 access to avoid the crowds. Probably not much time left for the high alpine lakes though with the snow coming...

magoo doesn't fly fish, i don't think, but i can guarantee he wouldn't mind doing it. and he'd love to go anyplace that requires wheeling in to fish.

I fish. Going to Alaska next week to fish Silvers with my Dad. I backpack to a high mtn lake at least once a year (see picture from a month ago - undisclosed lake).

Grizzly Lake is a nice spot to wheel too and catch brookies. Stock rigs can't really make it in there so it's perfect.

I'm a fly and bubble\lure fisherman. I haven't mastered the fly pole thing. It's too damn delicate. I'm always losing flies.

Opp's - first time trying to add images on this forum. Too bad, unlike the old forum I need the pics uploaded to a host server first. That sucks. No more direct uploads from the pc. I know this is like the other forums. But, it requires many more steps to post a pic.

A very good friend of mine owns Angler's Covey in Colo Spgs, Dave Leinweber. Shoot him a call, he can advise, outfit you, or just shoot the breeze.

If you ever get down there to his shop, be sure to check out the big picture on the south wall of the shop that looks like the cover of 'A River Runs Through It'.

No, it's not retouched. Yes, it's Dave doing the cast. Amazing.

Scott,

I was back in Pennsylvania in July, and my uncle gave me all sorts of fly fishing stuff from about fifty years ago...flies, leaders, tippet, fly wallets, etc. He's promised me his collection of rods/reels too...he was a big fan of bamboo rods back then, and didn't like the cheap stuff! I usually go to the Arkansas River or Elevenmile Canyon, but Waterton is fun too. Haven't tried too many of the more remote places, but I'd like to do that too. Maybe next year we can schedule a wheelin'/fishin' run somewhere?

The only fishing I know growing up in Alabama is "Dynamite Fishing". Works pretty good, and you can get your limit on the first try.............By the way, I've never seen "catch and release" till I got out to Colorado in 95. Is that like "shoot and release"?????????? :D :D

why yes i do fish.ALOT.i also dabble in fly fishing but mainly for bass,trout are too weak for me.i also do alot of icefishing and that is really my specialty so anytime anybody wants to go out on the ice lemme know.also evergreen if you want to learn some basics on flyrodding we can work something out.its really simple to learn,as long as you have some coordination.
and i am still on the hunt for 4x4 trails leading to lakes.found a real nice one today.its called mackinaw/crescent lake.its on colorado4x4.org.looks nice and easy and you can camp there too.its close to dotsero/gypsum though.

I might take you up on that. In all seriousness, I've got my grandfathers fly fishing pole and reel I would like to use, so let me know when you might go and I"ll try to stay out of everyone's way......

That looks like a great fishing adventure, snow or not. I am definitely in whenever you want to lead that trip Scott :D

Grizzly? Where abouts? My first fly fishing experience was on the Colorado River, very nice. Yeah combining fishing and 4-wheeling would be very nice.
