The Animas river is a technical river.  Its tough even for seasoned fisherman to catch fish every trip.  I have had my share of bad days on the river, and been skunked many times.  However I caught lots of fish this trip, but they were all very small.  They were pretty little fish, just really small.  

 
I was using a grasshopper pattern in the morning dropping to a nymph for most of the morning.  Then switched to a slump buster streamer in the later afternoon.  All of which were covered in moss at almost all casts.  Just lots and lots of moss, all day long.

Nice video! Too bad to hear you didn't catch anything big but still enoyable to watch :)

Thanks!  Yeah, it was a slow day for sure.  This river is like that, its tough.  Glad to hear you liked the video anyway.
