If you visited the Vail area during the week of Aug. 10, it might have appeared like any other day in the Colorado high-country. Driving west on I-70 along the Eagle River, anglers could be seen casting upstream, their silhouettes reflecting off the water. However, if you made it closer to the river, the usual hoots and hollers from fly fisherman sounded slightly different as they hooked up with fish Spanish, French, Polish and Czech languages echoed downstream.

Both Eagle and Summit counties served as venues, with competitors fishing the Colorado River, Blue River, Eagle River, Sylvan Lake State Park and Dillon Reservoir.
