Colorado Westslope Catch and Release Trout Fishing!

Colorado Spring Tailwaters

It's that time of year again -"Honey can I get away for a 3 day fishing weekend, I am way overdue and I think it would do wonders for our relationship if I get this time away:)". Yes it worked again and I took full advantage of it!

I drove a good 700 Miles to get to the waters I wanted to fish. I changed it up with a few different locations and got into some nice weather one day to cold, snowy 40mph winds another. Par for the course.
        
                                              Late afternoon action hard to beat



                                        Cold morning brought out the Big Bows and smiles



                                      Enjoyed a nice drive one evening hopping to another spot
                                            
Now it's time to play with the boys, help my wife and clean up the house again so I can ask again in a few weeks for another fishing break!

Snorkeling Hol Chan, Shark Alley and Mexico Rocks in Ambergris Caye Belize!

 
 
Swimming With Sharks! 
 
My Belize trip with one that my wife wanted to be filled with relaxation, some good food, many Rum drinks and perhaps some snorkeling. What she did not want to partake in was to swim with sharks...really?
 
I grew up in the ocean and spending countless Summers swimming in the Gulf of Mexico snorkeling as well as scuba diving. What hit me the most when planning this trip recently was to chase as many fish as I possibly could -preferably with my fly rod, as well as play with a few sharks.
 
Well my wish came true, I got to catch a number of bonefish and score a tarpon but it was swimming with an 8 foot nurse shark that perhaps had me smiling the most!
 
 
 First day out and didn't disappoint!
 
 
 Look out Manatee approaching!
 
 
 Hey Don "I think that's like 20 sharks there"!
 
 
                                                        Ready to jump in for some playtime with some friends!

For an amazing time out on the water, contact my buddy Alphonse!

Fly Fishing Ambergris Caye Belize For Bonefish, Snook and Permit!

 
 
Spring Belize Fishing on the Fly!
 
We final did it, we were able to leave the kids behind and head to Belize for an amazing Tropical vacation with yes, a little fishing! My wife and I spent 7 days in Ambergris Caye Belize with our dear friends Don/Aury from Atlanta.
 
Besides doing the tourist activities while we were there, let's face it, we were there to do some fishing and see what this place was all about. Despite the windy season and clouds, we managed to get into some fish as well as rum drinks to get through the day!

 
 
 Nice Bonefish out on a wind day
 
 
 I will miss this gin clear water
