This weekend finds me packing my gear for a week long road trip. Sunday and Monday finds the FlyfishMagazine.com road show visiting Knoxville, TN and then returning to North Carolina only to catch a plane to Denver, Colorado the next day. A rental car ride from the airport puts us meeting up with our Western correspondent and Sultan of Big Rainbow Trout, Ali Hassan, for an afternoon session that involves lake fishing at 9,000+ feet in belly boats for big bows. When I asked Ali what to bring fly-wise he suggested egg sucking leaches then followed the advice with "Of course I've never caught anything there with egg sucking leaches." Obviously Ali is a fly fisher who fits in well with the FlyfishMagazine.com crew.
