Fly Fishing on My Mind
February 17, 2014

I wasn’t exactly sure what it was that got me really thinking about fly fishing a few days ago. The street I was walking on was ankle deep in slush, the temperature was 37 degrees, and even a few birds were chirping. That could have been it or maybe it was a timer in my head that said “you haven’t been fishing in a few months, so…”

Either way, despite almost six feet of snowfall in two weeks and some of the best turns of the season, my mind can’t help wander towards fly fishing. With sunny skies and temperatures in the 30’s, that spring-time feel is just starting to show up, and with that comes the possibility of some great early season fishing opportunities. As March approaches, so will the open water on the Gunnison, East, and Taylor Rivers, and the stage will be set for some great pre-runoff fishing. This time of year might be overlooked by most people but it can surprise you with some great days on the water. The crowds are nonexistent, the fish are hungry, and the weather can be pleasant.

If you don’t have any plans this March and April or just want to take a break from the great skiing, book a trip with one of our professional guides or come by the shop for some up-to-the-minute conditions and information. In the meantime, here is an awesome video from New Zealand to get you stoked for the fishing season.

Dragonfly Anglers Product Review: The Patagonia R1
February 5, 2014

The R1 was most definitely designed with the active person in mind and has all the features that such a person requires. Its sleek design and athletic fit make this a great jacket with other layers, or on its own as an outer shell. Kept close to skin, the unique grid pattern on the inside pulls moisture from your body and leaves you warm and dry. This makes it great for skiing, whether you are hiking in the backcountry, riding the resort, or touring on the skinny skis. The R1 is also a great choice for winter fishing when you need to pack on as many layers as you can fit. You can also grab it on your way out the door to Kochevars for a “Nowak” or two after a big day outdoors. Lightweight, versatile, and great for everyday life in Crested Butte, Colorado, the R1 will not disappoint.

Dragonfly Anglers carries the R1 in several colors and sizes or we can special order one from our Patagonia dealer inventory. Shop our online store, stop by our shop in Crested Butte, or call us at 970.349.1228 for your custom order. 

*All products are tested and used by Dragonfly Anglers Pro Staff and Guides
