Made a 4 day backpacking trip through the Maroon Bells with my two boys this last week. Packed the 4pc 4wt and an Eagle Claw Trailmaster spin setup. Got to Snowmass Lake and was glad I brought the rods. Caught about 20 little brookies during lunch break on everything from Rooster tails to flies. Didn't seem to matter what fly, they just seemed hungry. We got back on the trail and headed a little west and set up camp at some big Beaver ponds and the brookies, however smaller, were just as hungry and voracious. Didn't have the fixings to cook so CNR all. Pics from Snowmass. No pics from the beaver ponds as we were all spread out.
