I truly didn't care about the size of the fish as I had read that RMNP trout can be small, but this may get you even more heated up...

Dude! What the () are you doing showing me that video!! OMG... I wanna leave tomorrow. Right about 7:50, that guy misses the fish and it comes back for the fly... I was about ready to...well never mind. That was like the ultimate. NOTHING better than watching a fish take a fly like that.

You and I would get along just fine. Small fish aren't a big deal to me. I love fishing for 4" brookies, 3" sunnies, etc. I don't mind battling a large fish don't get me wrong. But little guys will always have a place in my heart. Those fish they're catching in the video are damn nice IMO.

Thanks for posting all the pics and descriptions of this breathtaking park. So many stunning photos... and if your experience is like mine, the photos still fall short of what you actually see when you're there. Awesome, literally.

Marzrw,

Those pictures are absolutely amazing. You have a true gift in your ability to tease incredible pictures out of an incredible landscape. That was one of the best posts on this forum. The pic of Cutts in the gin clear water was my favorite but they're all sweet!

Thanks vt and everyone else.

dano I have a Pentax K10D DSLR camera with a 16-45mm Pentax lens. Kind of a heavy camera to lug around doing mountains, 4 ten mile hikes, and fishing, but seems worth it most of the time. It isn't waterproof, but does have weather resistant seams to protect it from the environment. Since I bought it, just like all other companies, Pentax has released about 4 newer models.I have a couple other lenses, one is a longer zoom but mostly use the 16-45 as at the 16mm end it is a wider look. Plus adding something in the foreground is an Ansel Adams trick.

"For what it's worth, I'd rather spend an evening casting to littlewild brookies in an unknown, uncrowded and unspoiled Park creek than a day hauling in big stocked rainbows on some name-brand river with a parking lot next to it."

Amen.

Awesome photo's MARZRW! We head to RMNP tomorrow night. This just made me more anxious to get there. I probably won't sleep tonight.
Thanks for sharing, gave me more places I need to visit.
