Escaped the heat at lower elevations this past weekend and got up to near 10K. I went to one of the main clusters of lakes on Grand Mesa and decided to not bring the spinning rod on purpose. Last year I started fly fishing and have enjoyed it immensely, so I wanted to work on my craft this day.
I used a variety of flies, with bites coming on all of them...BUT since I am so aggressive on my hookset sometimes, I only landed fish on half of my bites. The wind was kind of annoying but it is usually pretty windy where I fish so I feel combating that is making me better, maybe.
