I've always considered myself extremely lucky to be living my dream and earning a living by helping others catch fish. But working in the #gunnisongorge for a three day overnight trip serves as a large reminder that I truly am lucky to be doing this and getting to do it in places like this. Back in for three more days tomorrow before a busy October back on the Dream. #colorado#flyfishing#flyfishingguide
Decided to opt outside a few days early in the Gunnison Gorge. Custom fly rod case attachment sewn on by one talented mother for possibly the last fishing trip of the year. 10+miles round trip and 2400 foot elevation change all to catch (and release) one six inch brown trout. Worth every step.
It is estimated that there are 10,000 trout per mile on this stretch of the Gunnison River. This guy was not the biggest or the brightest of the bunch. Best wishes this winter little friend. Maybe next year you’ll be bigger than the tattoo. Last catch of 2017?
