Sorry for the delay. I just processed the film in the disposable camera I took fishing. Here you go!

Three are from the San Juan in March the one in the bottom right corner is from the Red River. This weekend we are going to try the Rio Grande in the Taos gorge. The Caddis should be coming around soon!

Nice contrast, desert to snow. I wish I could afford to travel more.

Thanks for sharing.
Fly fishing is like sex. The first time is never like you thought it would be, but you never forget it. You get better with experience. You think about it alot. You do it when ever you can until you die. You always have fun no matter what.

One of these days....

How was the fishing? I just love those boulder-strewn rivers.
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.

The San Juan was fair ... considering. We landed ~20 fish. The visibility was < 18" so it was tough. The Red was Beautiful and more fun even though we did about the same. They were wild fish though and much more fun to catch. Here's another picture from the trip to the Red. This is where the Red runs into the Rio Grande.

Shoe, its a hard 8-9 hours from Phoenix. If you are looking for a great fishing trip from Arizona, look into the White mountains. They are awsome!

Those are some awesome pics. You are lucky to fish places like that. There are some guys that never travel to fish. Enjoy your trips and keep fishing. biggrin.gif
