Gunn Show

 A little big for the net and a little hard on the arm... The rest is Big

Fighters! huh Babe?
My Birthday fish!

This is what happens when you stay up all night at a friends house...

Now, this "no fly" thing is....... Quite a problem!!

Kinda hard to sleep when there are so many snakes in the grass!

Growing Hills

Hills turn to mountains and guard the water like soldiers here in the great state of Colorado.

A journey through these hills will take a fisherman to uncharted waters to test their patients and skills learned by countless days of tying knots and standing in water.

Although almost every angler has a favorite spot witch produces fish nearly every time, Could the factor of confidence be overlooked when reflecting back on the days success? Perhaps so...
Is your confidence working for you as a tool to catch fish?

The best gear can not be purchased.

Could it be, that, a spot, a fly rod, and a full boat of confidence is all you need to catch fish?...

Yup, that and a couple of MIDGEMAN'S super bugs, a trip over a growing hill, to uncharted water did it for us all while producing nothing more than a good group of strong Rainbow trout.

 All Rainbows on this day and fire in the fight of every one!
 A drift that was close to good with a tiny bug got ya bent up good!

 Her turn, my turn, her turn, my turn, All day long!

As you can clearly see in the photo below... The scenery was EPIC!
 The mechanics of my wife Summer reached new heights as I witnessed the finer points of her roll cast become habit and the fishing becoming much more naturally to her. I was proud enough to take a nice break and watch her through the zoom on my lil green camera.
 They swam away from our hands just like they left with the fly, Confused and hungry!
 My son Dylan still has a cast on his rod hand. Even though it certainly makes fishing difficult, he can't leave the critters found on the river bank alone.

Special Thanks on the trip to, MIDGEMAN for showing me the proper way of solving problems!
Also A big thanks to JIM for great directions to a killer spot and a nice talk at a local restaurant!

The best fishing buddies I've ever had... I have never set wader boots in the sand with.
