High country trout streams are perfect for first-time fly fishers!
Armed with size 12 cast-off waders, a five weight, a size 12 royal coachmen and as little advice and nagging as I could muster my Mommacita came through with this year's token trout in no time at all!

I know I know. It is a little harsh (and perhaps foolish) to label your wife's first fly fishing triumph "token". Trust me, I know something you don't. Shortly after that she caught the biggest trout I have ever seen in this creek.
Must be a banner year because I caught the second biggest trout I have ever seen in this creek!
