Spectacular fishing report and I love the perspective shots!

Most of all; beautiful rod and reel!

Thanks for sharing buddy!

What a great bucket list trip, love the pics of the cuttys and browns. I am looking forward to one day hitting Colorado on a camping and roaming trip and this report helps fuel the fire. One question I have is regarding what looks like the .44 side arm and after watching the Grizzly and Wolves in Yellowstone special on the PBS Nature program this past Sunday, and seeing the wolves take on grizzlies, what species is the main danger or is it just the sum total of everything from bear, wolves, coyotes or love making elk? Great post!

Great report. Thanks for sharing.

I really wish you will add some pictures and put in a little more detail in your next report

Glad your rolling with the flip and flops life throws your way

Ooh and I believe those toes are fuzzier than those flip flops

Glad someone is catching a bunch of nice fish

The Rod is a Jim Schaafe made Creede which is a 7 ft 4 wt which was built in 1970's, I bought it after the beginning of my bamboo addiction because of its name and my love of the Creede area. Since then I have fallen in love with the rod as much as the area. So much so that I even found Jim's grave in Creede and went and told him "personally" thank you for making the rod, well as personal as a person to grave conversation can be. The reel is an Adams reel made by Gary Lacey.

As to the handgun Rick claims bears are the reason he wears it I claim he wears it just cause he likes to wear it and he thinks it looks cool....... but what do I know I am just the old man in the deal. If he keeps taking me fishing he can wear whatever he wants.

thanks for the kind words everyone.
