Also worth noting no longer in business.

Trout are pretty much asleep here.
Glad to hear you're still fishing.

Had lunch with my youngest brother and SIL yesterday. My bro handed me a postcard for an open house at the fly shop in Estes Park in a few days. I didn't see Steven J. M. listed as one of the industry celebrities scheduled to attend but there are some other heavy hitters. John Gierach (my favorite author), Rick Takahashi & John Barr (inventors of a few favorite flies), and a few authors of regional fly fishing books that I've been meaning to pick up. This is the kind of deal I moved here for! Can't wait.

There's also a coupon for 50% off a single item. I'm pretty someone's getting a UV starter pack for Christmas.

EDIT: I've found myself practicing the pronunciation of Gierach so I don't stumble when/if I need to say his name in his presence. More than anyone else, his writing is what drew me in to this fly fishing deal and I fear I'll turn in to a quivering pile of jello in his presence. Maybe I should have a few snorts of scotch beforehand.

Saw this on another site and noticed the puff of smoke and other strings of smoke...must have been the camera man with a pipe...or maybe the guy in the middle...any way nice hook up on the fish too.

Great video.
I love the puffs of smoke.
