The Truth – July 2018 Fly Fishing the Colorado High Country


With all the doom and gloom filling our minds through news articles and social media feeds, sometimes we need to head for the hills. It’s an imperative, a vital mental reset. A must for the rejuvenation of our emotional state.

What we usually find tends to be the opposite of all the doom in the news. It is a story of life, full of growth, and truth!

Truth is simple, and we need it. News comes and goes. Truth lasts.

The truth is this: summer is slipping quickly, and there are far too many waters left to be fished. The reality is that mountain wildflowers last only a few weeks. The truth is, that for the time being, trout are absolutely annihilating any bug unfortunate enough to fall in any backcountry water.

Good news, bad news, or fake news; sometimes you have to head for the hills to get no news, and find only truth.
