With this I agree.

JCTroutman 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.

Pete-G 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.

ColoGregS 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!

pistoldog 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.

spurdude101 this is the kind of crap that pisses me off. Your fishing license cost the same as theirs. I would have been on the phone to the district wildlife manager as soon as I got to cell service. these muckaloons who buy $500.00 rods an two hundred dollar nets think they are better people than you. Efem! A $50.00 dollar rod will catch the same fish! I would have asked them to show me the regs. But FYI if you want to have some fun go buy a 7 foot fly rod 6 weight put on a 6 ft leader 6x tippet and your roostertail with a slit shot foot and a half up. Its a little hard to cast but fish the riffles downstream and strip it in and out. to everyone you look like your fly fishing but that spinner will catch more fish than the shmo with the $500.00 rod! and as for money. go on ebay, you can outfit yourself with a fly rod reel and line for under a $100.00. Or strap on a open carry firearm. I bet no one will say a word, nor should they! Oh and other thing, What those people did was against the law. Interfering with your lawful hunt(fish). I would still call and report it. then go back, fish again and take descriptions and vehicle plate numbers and report it again. Who the hell are these people who think they have the right to even speak to you in the first place?!
