Steelhead in Colorado

In three hours, I fished in Cuba for tarpon, permit and bone fish; chased rainbows in Patagonia, Argentina; caught steelhead on a spey rod on the Dean River in British Columbia; and chased Tarpon in the Florida Keys and chased the monster taimen in Mongolia! I could have chased some monster Carp; however, carp-chasers, I will enjoy your adventures and leave the carp to you!

All of my adventures were shared with great friends that accompanied me and hundreds of others that took a break from their lives to watch the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour that came to the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado.
 
A huge shout out to St. Peter’s Fly Shop for providing the support to bring the tour to Northern Colorado and providing a wonderful break from the rocky mountain spring weather.  www.stpetes.com

If you have never been, the evening starts with an opportunity to mingle with friends, meet new ones, and just absorb the energy of all the like minded fly fishers young and old, there to share the evening. After getting your favorite libation and picking up your Fly Fishing Film tour swag (free stuff), you settle back into your chair and watch some amazing footage of trips near and far that put you on the water with those that had the fortune of actually being there. The footage is spectacular and the camera angles with the invent of the go pro digital platform incorporates more of your senses and you become part of the experience. Intermission gets you out of your seat and more swag is thrown into the audience, raffles are cheered on. Thanks Fly Fishing Film Tour and St. Peter’s Fly Shop.

The evening was a wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of life, the transition from winter to spring, and the temperatures. Everyone left the show with a new found energy and longing to get on the water.

  1. NOCO...I've got to figure out a way to get you and Mr. Big Dry Fly to turn the corner on carp. I really think that you'd dig the challenge that they are to take a fly.
