Fly Fishing the Seasons in Colorado

An Essential Guide For Fishing Through The Winter, Spring, Summer, And Fall


Book Description

The single most important factor that determines a fly angler's approach to a stretch of water isn't the time of day, nor is it a hatch of insects or even the character of the water itself. It's the season. From spring and summer through fall and winter, changes in weather dictate changes in strategy. This can be intimidating. If fish were biting here a month ago, why are things so different now? Where to go where they might be better? The seasonal variation of fishing strategy is necessary knowledge for any fly angler, and Fly Fishing the Seasons: Colorado is the first-ever guidebook to address this subject.

Focusing on the world-class waters of the Centennial State, and with full-color photos throughout, this book comprises four equal sections—summer, fall, winter, and spring—each with a general locator map and each covering five to ten primary locations. The best waters to fish in this particular month or span of months? What flies and techniques to use? Look no further than Fly Fishing the Seasons: Colorado.
