Colorado Fly Fishing – By the Numbers

| August 6, 2010

Quick! Tell me; What is the Zone System?
OK, for free hotspot access, please answer the following question; What is the Zone System?

It’s Friday and we arrived in Denton, Texas, about dark last night. Why, why why? Why did we go from 44-degrees just above Lyons, Colorado, yesterday morning – to just under 100-degrees in Denton last night? OK, it is home, and the chickens needed tending, and the dogs needed petting, and …

A quick look at the numbers from the Colorado expedition show:
2500 – number of words already written on the trip with only two days of entries completed
2000 – miles driven
100 – number of random still images shot
10 – approximate number of GIGS of video shot on the trip
5 – approximate number of days fished
5 – number of pounds lost on expedition
2 – baseball caps purchased (one for me and one for LK)
30 – number of minutes with good phone service during last 8 days
20 – number of dollars spent on hatch peppers (by SO) roadside yesterday
12 – exact number of flies purchased
8 – exact number of flies lost (not on fish)

It looks like I have a lot of writing and editing to do, and will get the day-by-day out to Texas Fly Caster readers starting next week. Oh, and here’s one more:

1 – The 1 thing I know for sure, is the best approach to fishing Colorado; take it 1 river at a time, and spend as much time as it takes to get to know that 1 river.
