I am just curious about where people who post on the board grew up and now live. It sounds like we have a great diversity of fishing backgrounds. I'll start. I was born and raised in Colorado. I grew up on the Front Range and now live in Fruita, on the Western Slope. I primarily fish for trout but have been trying to target more warm water species. It is a lot easier to do now than when I was growing up! I am happy to see the diversity, Colorado fishing, now has to offer.
