Reflections on Fly Fishing: Streamside Notes From Colorado Waters

Take a break and enjoy some time on the water. Reflections on Fly Fishing: Streamside Notes From Colorado Waters contains ten years of Colorado fly fishing adventures condensed into 40 pages of photographs matched with short essays. Several of the locations in this book are just a few steps from the road. Other locations require hiking many hours to get your first glimpse of the water. What do you see and feel as you step into this remote river? Beautiful Colorado landscapes, swift flowing currents, insects in all stages of their brief lifespans and (if you are lucky) surprisingly large trout. This isn’t the book you take to the river on a weekend with you. It is the book you keep at home and read for inspiration when you can’t get there. Perfect for winter evenings, rainy days or any Tuesday. The cold, clear rivers that originate in the Rocky Mountains create prime habitat for healthy trout populations. Fly fisherman from around the world are lured to these gold medal waters located in beautiful natural landscapes. If you have a few days, you can fish most of the top rivers in the state of Colorado. But I wouldn’t recommend that. If I had only three days to fish, I would pick one spot and stay put for the full time. You learn and appreciate much more about a place by seeing it clock through the cycles of day and night. Sunrise as the light hits the water. Birds and insects begin to stir and make themselves seen and heard. Timid, inquisitive trout start sampling the coming day’s banquet. The heat of the mid-day when all is quiet, a major hatch erupting after an afternoon rain shower, the sunset party when all the fish show up. Join me at the river as you browse through the images and read the accompanying text. Step into your waders and follow me…
