    Small stream dry fly fishing at its finest. Rocky Mountain National Park offers many opportunities for fishing small streams. Follow hosts Mark Miller and Bill Gillett up into the Park for some amazing fishing.

Note of the Day:

I also strongly recommend fine round Gut in preference to Hair at this season [April], on account of the size and weight of the “large hooks” on which the Brown Drake requires to be dressed; and which Hair will not retain so safely as Gut; and also, though you may probably rise more fish with Hair, yet taking the breakages you are liable to by using it, and the loss and hinderance you suffer thereby, especially if broken in the midst of a feed, which perhaps does not last above a quarter of an hour, taking these matters into consideration, I have long since arrived at the conclusion that Gut is much better for Spring fishing than Hair.
