Gianinetti Spring Creeks

Hello all:

Colorado DOES have a spring creek fishery! FRA is running a trip to Gianinetti Spring Creek outside of Carbondale, the weekend of August 21-22, 2004. This is Colorado’s only Spring creek and the reason you may not have heard of it is because it is all private. This is a rare opportunity to get onto this amazing water, and best of all --we’ve kept the price down. So don’t miss this opportunity to throw hoppers to 20 inch trout. Click here for details.

We've had some great feedback on the new "Flies, Ties & Lies" section appearing in each Thursday's Daily Camera, which we're providing the content for. Some customers have requested that we email a printable version of the fishing report to them each week. If you'd be interested in this service, Send us an email.

DESTINATIONS

Rocky Mountain National Park: Do you like solitude, beautiful surroundings, and fishing for trout in small streams and high mountain lakes? Then Rocky Mountain National Park needs to be on the top of your destination list. In under an hour you can be hiking along a meandering meadow stream, laying out a cast in every likely spot.
 
FLY TYING
Diffusion Hackling: Diffusion hackling is a technique which started in Europe for creating parachute flies using deer hair. This technique can be used with a wide assortment of materials.

Reverse Hackle: Reverse Palmer Hackling has become increasingly popular. It's not only fast and simple, but it also significantly improves the durability of your flies.


SnoBall Beetle: HERE IT IS! Dennis Collier's secret weapon for the Big Thompson and RMNP. Actually this pattern works great on any stream you care to fish. TIE SOME TODAY!


The Vise: Do you know the history behind the fly tying vise? It had a revolutionary impact on the way in which flies were tied for 500 years prior to its adoption.

 
TIPS AND TECHNIQUES

Fishing Light Lines: Why lighter lines (1 to 4-weight) will improve your dry fly fishing.

Simple Blood Knot: Here is a variation of the standard Blood Knot developed by Mark Sosin and Lefty Kreh.

Fly Line Loops: Do you find yourself ensnared in your fly line while nymph fishing? Casting the proper loop will provided relief.


Trophy Trout: Trophy trout fishing is a matter of location as opposed to size.
