It’s runoff in Colorado and many of our streams are at dangerous levels to wade and fish…
Now is the time to grab your backpack and hiking boots and head to a high country lake for some prime ice off fishing for wild trout. High country lake destinations like Colorado’s Flat Tops, Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park provide high country anglers with a lifetime of access to true “wild” fisheries filled with abundant bug life and healthy trout populations.
On a recent trip to a Rocky Mountain National Park lake that we aren’t going to give away (you are just going to have to find it yourself) we had the opportunity to put a handful of Orvis Superfine Rods to the test. Matched with furled leaders and small beetle and ant patterns we were able to put some nice Colorado high country trout in the net.
As Orvis says in regards to their Superfine rod series “Feel Everything – Target selective back channel sippers with finesse, thanks to the delicate presentations offered by the Superfine® rod series. Classic details, led by the unsanded graphite blank, meet modern construction for performance ready to battle the pickiest of trout. Whether you’re stalking western browns on the Big Hole or hunting ambitious brookies on a small eastern stream, the Superfine rod series come to play.”
The Superfine Rods come in both glass and carbon models, depending on how much “play” you are looking for in your next fly rod. If you are a dry fly angler or small stream enthusiast you owe it to yourself to check out the Orvis Superfine Series today…
