Gunnison

Every year a group of us go to the Gunnison area for a flyfishing trip.  We stay in Almont, and fish the Taylor, Gunnison, and other surronding rivers.  It is a great time in a beautiful part of the state, and we generally catch a lot of trout!  Here a just a couple of photos of the trip.




Selection of proper flies is vital to success!






Walking to the honey hole...




The Taylor River is a very peaceful place...full of trout!




 Red Copper John = Brown Trout


It rained every afternoon, but as long as there was no lightning, we kept catching fish!



We stayed at a great cabin right on the river.  It was nice having a place to hang the fishing gear after a long day of being on the water.



A good hat is very important...



A few well placed stonefly nymphs seemed to intrigue the rainbows.




We stopped on the Arkansas River on the way back home.  We caught more brown trout fishing pocket water.  A great finish to the trip!
