Went out recently with my buddy Tanner. He has NEVER fished in the rivers for the entire 17 years he's lived here in Colorado. Had to take him out and show him the ropes...Couldn't have asked for a better time! (besides hooking myself twice, the first was pretty bad)

We hit the Colorado River and Roaring Fork River, 3 different spots total.
Colorado river was a little stained but nothing too bad yet.
Roaring Fork was nice and clear!

We landed some really nice fish, including my buddy landing a really nice Brown Trout, probably a Master Angler but didn't have a measuring tape/board nearby and didn't want to kill the fish. Always fun when days like this work out. Glad I didn't take him out to get skunked lol.
Attached are some photos of the day and also a link to the video! Hope you all enjoy!!

-This is also the first time i caught that weird looking trout that resembled a weird rainbow or a feint tiger.

I will have to watch the video later but I have to say that the 2 pics of fish being released belong on a calendar - they are beautiful. Thanks
