Author: Will Rice

Exploring new fisheries and experimenting on your own is a great way to experience the State of Colorado with a fly rod.  Here is an article on the same topic that was published in the Drake Magazine that might be of interest if you have aspirations of going off the grid and exploring new frontiers on your own.

Fly Fishing Report: Waterton Canyon June 1st

June 7, 2013
Author: Will Rice

The first fish I hooked after a six mile bike ride up Waterton Canyon was a 13” or 14” rainbow that ate a red tungsten rojo midge.  The fish took the fly in a small section of slower moving water right in front of a two foot waterfall.  It first came toward me and then turned downstream just as quickly.  I knew that if the fish went into the faster water and over the small falls it was game over – there would be no chase due to the large and loose rocks that surrounded me.  I held the fish as best I could – it finally came up with a big head shake and spit my hook.

Game over.

“We are Howler Brothers.  We are not really related by blood.  But we are bonded by many shared calling: surfing, fishing, paddling, and the good things that come with these pursuits.  Things like fire pits, really good tequila, limes and pre-dawn coffee.”

I thought to myself: I like these guys already.’
