Colorado high country makes for an amazing backdrop for a day on the river. We each take at least one trip to Colorado each year to fly fish, and the creeks and lakes we fish typically are in the Colorado high country. Most recently Dave was in Colorado fishing with one of Steve’s brothers, and besides the two yearling moose that wouldn’t leave them alone, they had a terrific day.

The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists
For this episode, we are the Sponsor!
We’ve published a book called, The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists: Life is short. Catch more fish.
We like to say it is a book of bite-sized snacks. Maybe even like a handful of potato chips. It’s an entire book of lists. The goal is to help you find practical help quickly and in an easily digestible format!

Normally I don’t post in forums or to podcasts, but while driving home from work today I heard a comment in one of the recent pod casts about wearing orange while fishing in the fall and thought I should share my story about that. What might sound sort of like a joke was a reality for me last year. I usually arrive on the river before sunrise to beat the crowd and get in as much fishing time as possible before heading home around lunchtime. On one morning in late October in the middle of 2nd rifle season I arrived at my chosen fishing spot on the South Platte and noticed a truck that didn’t appear to belong to a fisherman in the parking lot. As I walked down to the river I noticed a group of Mule Deer Bucks across the river in a meadow and then looked repeatedly from the truck to the deer, and then at my tan from top to bottom fishing gear. I decided to wait in my truck for a bit and sure enough, right at shooting light, I heard a gunshot from the hills on the other side of the river. While the hunter did everything right, shooting away from the river and road, etc., I’m still glad I decided to play it safe. After that morning I always wore some hunters orange while fishing during hunting season.
Wow … so smart to wait in your truck. I wonder if I would have been that patient. Great story. Thank you for posting.
