Brian Mowers and I left our Arizona confines to visit a couple buddies up in Colorado. Doug Fisherman and Matt Dearen are two excellent fly fisherman and the South Platte River near Deckers, CO is their home stretch. We showed up a day before Doug and Matt was going to meet up with us down the road. We fished it for about 2 1/2 days. Caught many fish mostly Big bows and a few browns. I hooked into three really big fish, lost two but landed one finally with a 100 yard fight down stream where I also ran into some boulders with my chins. I earned my "Deckers Dingers". We had success with Brian's streamer patterns (wouldn't be the last time) and nymphing with a girdlebug with a tiny dropper.
