Trico Pattern

This pattern was developed three years ago for Sopris Creek aka Blue Creek in the Roaring fork Valley. It proved to be most effective in the morning before the sun hit the water. It also proved  effective in the late evening to which I assumed that the quarry was taking it as a midge.

Fisherman Quote

When you find someone who answers all the questions, you can be sure that he doesn’t fish enough to know what it’s all about, or else…… well, just or else.
