Seasons are changing, temperatures rising, and our favorite fishing spots are becoming accessible again. For some of us, it's time to dust off the rod and waders, while others haven't taken a break from fishing all winter. Personally, I have fished at least once every month for the past 5 years, and I don't plan on stopping that tradition any time soon. When my tradition started, I was so excited for the winter months. There was no crowd (hardly an encounter with another angler), there was a peace and serenity that only fishing in solitude could bring.
Struggling with how to tie a certain pattern? Don't know where to start to learn how to tie your own flies? Maybe you just want to see how fly tying is done, or you just want to hang out with some good guys who are passionate about fly fishing. Come join us Wednesday nights from 6-8 for our free fly tying sessions. We have all levels of experience, from people who don't know what a vice is to commercial fly tiers, all with a laid back attitude to help with any issues in your fly tying.
Fly fishing, what a sport! There are those of us who have been bitten by this bug hard, it has taken over our lives, ruined our families, drained our bank accounts, and still we come back for more. What is it about fly fishing that draws us back time and time again? What causes us to seek out those moments when the reel is spinning out of control from a fish running away?
With this amazing winter Colorado has had, fly fishing has stayed very productive throughout the colder months. Clear Creek fly fishing is already seeing good dry fly action. With easy access from Golden, Clear Creek offers anglers the ability to escape and wet some line without having to battle mountain roads and hazards. While traffic can be somewhat heavy on the weekends, Clear Creek Canyon offers over 19 miles of fishable water from Golden to Idaho Springs. Trout are feeding on a regular basis on Clear Creek.
Shops the malls if you are brave enough this weekend, but please stop by GRS and support local business on Small Business Saturday.
All it takes is one item - no matter how big or how small - to keep local businesses successful during the holidays.
