You know,just about every high lake I've hiked to has nice cutts like these.The hike can be anywhere from 2 miles to 10 miles one-way.The key I think is to be off the beaten path.Trails to lakes that dead-end in cirques are a good starting point.This keeps the happy hikers away,cause they like to do "loops".I have found that lures work great in the spring at ice-out,then as the summer progresses they wont even look at metal.Then its time for fly rod or fly&bubble.Terrestrial patterns or big nymphs start to work then towards fall.All the above fish were caught on a muddler or elk hair caddis fished very slowly.

Most of us just blow Slayer off. He is really a great writer of fiction and an expert at manipulating fotos.! I know it, he knows it everyone knows it!

Actually, those of us who are jealous of him wish that were true. He is a great fisherman and backs up the talk too! He is not afraid to work to get his fish and it shows with his success.

You would never get elected for 2 reasons.

1. People would just assume you are lying since you are a fisherman. (Could you imagine the lies you would get if you crossed a politician with a fisherman?)

2. At some time you would have to take off the shades.

Slayer, you make me long to be a DINK with a government job! You obviously are great at finding these out-of-the-way places. What map do you use to find them? Do you hear reports about them before you go or do you just see water and hit the trail armed with tackle?

I cant speak for Slayer but one of the best map books I have found is "Colorado Atlas and Gazetter by DeLorme" This atlas rules.
