As you can see from the picture of Eleven Mile Canyon, Lee and I did not spend our entire time in Denver at the Fly Fishing show. We managed to find time to do some fishing in the Colorado Springs area. While we didn't exactly slay them, we did both manage to catch some fish and we saw some beautiful country. We fished a stretch of the South Platte near Fairplay, The Dream Stream and eleven Mile Canyon during our stay.
My first impression of the show was that of a kid in a candy store. Just about anyone in the industry you can think of was on hand to show their new products for 2009. We will be writing about some of the things we saw in the near future. I want to thank the following people for spending time with us and making us feel welcome.
Chris and Sven with EXOFFICIO
Scott with Pale Morning Media
Kate with The Original Buff
Will with Kaenon Polarized
Greg with Smith Optics
Brian with Patagonia
There are sure to be some items from them in this years Christmas wish list.
Also thanks to Ali Hassan for showing us some of his favorite fishing spots!
