Breckenridge, CO. August 6, 2015. A little over two years ago, I fished the Blue River just below the Dillon Reservoir in 20 degree weather and caught some of the most beautiful rainbow trout I had ever seen. I learned about mysis shrimp and cold hands and sharing the scenery with an outlet mall in the background.
Today I am fortunate to have been invited to share my journey with a crowd at the Breckenridge branch of the Summit County Libraries at 5:00. An old colleague, Monica Owens, invited me to speak and insisted on giving up her place for me to stay for the night. She is one example of many folks that continue to keep on giving to me during this amazing journey.
I won’t have time to throw a line in the next day, but look forward to a week in West Yellowstone, MT with Florian and friends Scott and Connie Voss and Carl and Linda Curtiss. We’ll float the Madison and Yellowstone Rivers and hike up in to Yellowstone NP for some back country small stream fishing. Can’t wait!!
