Spent a few days fishing the Lower Roaring Fork River in Colorado over the long weekend. The fishing was as great as the scenery and weather. A san juan worm with a pheasant tail dropped off the back seemed to be the preferred fly choice. I caught a lot of great fish with about 75% being rainbows and 25% browns. Wild fish are so much more rewarding to catch then the hatchery fish I am accustomed to.
Not much you can do with 5x and a size 20 pheasant tail. This fish headed down stream quick and ended up breaking me off. Sure would have liked to have seen him.
