Welcome to forum, Fishnkiltz. I do indeed live in Longmont and Dick Shinton is a friend of mine. Sadly, I will be unable to make the Expo this year. Hope to meet you sometime soon.

Hello Jim. Thank you for the welcome. Too bad you won't be at the expo, but maybe next time.

Just a few days on this forum and I'm already making friends. This forum is alright in my book.

Looks like you're in the process of fitting in nicely. Please be sure to

Well, now, as a newbie myself, having had the Soft Hackle Epiphany about 2 years ago, and who fishes the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork once a year, I gotta ask, what’s in the Colorado Six Pack?

I hope I don't get banned for this, but this is what you get, but sometimes it varies . . . slightly.

The Delaware Adams. Quite possibly the greatest dry fly in the world in my opinion, because it caught me over 100 fish in a day.

Of course the PT Nymph
Image

Ants. You can''t fish Colo. without an ant. I also do a soft hackled version of this ant.
Image

I call this a Honey Badger. Sort of a rip off from the Prince nymph, but it's a wet fly version.
Image

The Renegade. This fly is a must on the small creeks. It probably out performs any other dry fly on the North St. Vrain in the Wild Basin.
Image

The RS-2. Great trailing a nymph or a wet.
Image

That is pretty much it, though like I said, it can change with a pattern or two. What brought it on was I have a friend who likes to ride his mountain bike on the trails and take his 3wt rod and stop at times to fish little creeks he comes across. So he asked me if I could tie up some of my favorite flies and put them in a small box that he could put in his shirt pocket. The 6 pack was born.
