Author: Will Rice

If you fly fish in Colorado pay attention to this: with strong bipartisan support, the Colorado General Assembly has passed Senate Bill 224 to create the Protect Our Rivers license plate. The plate will be available to all CO residents through a tax-deductible contribution of $25 to Colorado Trout Unlimited and 100% of the funds will be used locally to protect, conserve and restore Colorado rivers. Here’s what you can do if you support this effort and Colorado TU: sign the CTU Petition which will be presented to the powers that be to demonstrate that this effort has support in the field.

Our Guide Manager Reid Baker just led our Switch Rod and Spey casting lesson last week and was able to field test and write a gear review about two Sage ONE switch Rods. Reid has extensive experience fishing in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.  He and our students cast the Sage ONE 5116-4 and 6116-4 and these rods produced results. If you are interested in an in depth review of this rod and why it is a great stick for the Rocky Mountain West this is a great gear review – here’s a taste.


"Stepping into the river and peeling off a moderate amount of line beyond the shooting head. My first snap-t cleared the running line with ease, causing the reel to growl as it hit the end of its slack. “Wow,” I thought while stripping in my line and readying for my next cast."

You have to love spring fly fishing conditions in Colorado.
