Fellas-
Had an absolutely stellar spring season on the Lake Fork and Taylor Rivers in the Gunnison Valley. Thought I'd share a few photos while runoff is temporarily ruining my piscatorial pursuits.

I'm betting most any serious fly angler knows where this guy came from...the Taylor C&R. He ate a #22 red D-Midge.

And if you've never fished the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, it's flat out awesome. I can't wait to throw giant tan and gold Chubby Chernobyls at big browns and 'bows lined up against the bank after runoff subsides!

And it's not just the Taylor C&R that has big fish potential, but the entire lower Taylor as well. This guy ate a #20 grey RS2.

Beautiful fish-  Spring here in New England has been cold and rainy. 


And you thought golf was frustrating-
