Colorado Summertime Fix

There is nothing like summertime in the mountains of Colorado. Thunderstorms, sunshine, green drake hatches and those lovely freestone rivers. I was able to get back for a few days on the water during a quick trip earlier this summer. A big thanks to Marc Basset, Kurt Olesek and Josh Lively for the good times on the water, cathcing all those fish, and rowing all those boats.
