Santa Claus is coming to town.....

Shitter's full!
Hopefully you were good and you will get all you wish.  Rods, reels, lines, waders, boots, flies, fly boxes, leaders, tippet spools, sushi rolls, Hopper Juans, Fishpond nippers, Simms packs and everything else you could think of.  Eat lots, enjoy your family and drive safe.

Almost Christmas

As I sit here writing this, I am in an area with some of the most trout infested rivers around.  The wind is howling out of the Northwest about 60 miles an hour and I didn't happen to bring any tying equipment with me for my trip.  The Animas is within an hour, the Dolores is within an hour and the San Juan is within an hour.  These are just the fishable waters in the winter.  I thought about heading out this morning but it was snowing hard.  I could go Christmas shopping, but the funding dried up around the 2nd present we bought.  To the West, the sky is clear, but the fast moving clouds hit the tall San Juan Mountains in the North and the clouds are dark and heavy.  Tomorrow is another day to try and get out on one of those rivers.  For now, I will leave you with a couple of pictures.  These are the only two on my desktop as I don't have a library on this computer.  I hope some of you are getting out and enjoying the weather!!
