Jag-off idiots down there who watched Brad Pitt in a River Runs up my butt and have bigger credit card limits than brain. SMH...

If your legal your legal.

You allready got some good tips on lures, my bet would be a panther martin with a black blade and yellow spots.

If you want to try and fly fish, Orivs has some good fly rod combos around $170.00.

Here's another tip. Avoid Deckers like the plague, its a moth to the flames area for all the hipster flailers with sculpted man beards, driving Subaru's and Jeeps with Yakima roof racks living in downtown Denver overpriced apartments.

Your experience is what made me quit flyfishing 30 yrs ago. I was at Trappers and just administering a beat down on the Cutts while out in my tube. Two Orvis boys asked me about it, when I paddled in and game me the business about fishing a nymph.


I looked at them and told them that I was up there to CATCH fish and have a good time. Then I told them that only idiots would keep throwing dries for hours w/o catching a fish. LOL


Hope that you didn't let them ruin your attitude about all fisherman. Keep after your passion!

As someone who has used fly rods and spin rods I hate to see this. I'm an old man but I have a short fuse and would have given them as much shit as they gave you. I only fish with a spin rod now and fish mostly the Arkansas for river fishing but also lakes and ponds or course. The same attitude is on the Ark from fly fisherman. They think they own it.

As far as I know, there's no place in Colorado that's fly fishing only. Fish anywhere you want and tell those to stuff it if they don't like it.

As a guy who brings both kinds of rods and tackle everywhere I go, they were in the wrong. You are a better, more versed fisherman if you learn how to use both. Some days the hardware wins, some days the bugs do.

Enjoy the fishing and don't let those bums discourage you.

With this I agree.
