Saturday 10/16: Customer Appreciation BBQ & Juan Ramirez Tying Demo

BBQ: 11-5ish

We have a great day planned for this Saturday so keep you schedules clear.  May 15th, 2009 still feels like yesterday when we first opened our doors for business.  We simply cannot thank you all enough for your loyal support.  Please accept this invitation as a small token of our appreciation.About Our Featured Tier Juan Ramirez
Juan grew up in Northern New Mexico fishing the small streams and creeks of the Sangre De Cristos.  Juan received his first tying kit when he was 15.  After a few disastrous “creations”, it was put away for a few years.  In college at Durango, CO the kit was opened and a new appreciation for the globs of fur, feathers, floss and thread was created.  Now after 15 years of tying Juan is an accomplished fly tier.   Currently a part time guide for Anglers Covey and a fly tying instructor for Ghillies Fly Shop in Colorado Springs, there are not many seconds that pass without the thought of fishing or tying that go by. Visit his website the “Hopper Juan” HERE.Flies Juan Will be Tying Include…
-Hopper Juan
-Juan’s 719 Beatis
– Ice Emerger
-Floss Back Emerger
– Tungsten Glossy Back Beatis
-Following Juan’s presentation we will be putting the new smoker to use as part of our customer appreciation day!


This Weeks Fishing ReportUsually fishing reports range from fair to excellent.  This week I am going to add a new word to describe the fishing conditions on the Colorado, BONKERS!  In all my years of floating this river I simply have never seen it fish this well.  Streamers, nymphs, dries, and combinations of all the above are keeping the rods bent all day long from the boat. 

Lot’s of big browns and rainbows today.  Browns are still slow to move to the beds but are in the deep fast slots directly behind the shallow stuff.  Rainbows are in the deep long runs mixed with the smaller browns that are still not sure what their biological clock is telling them to do. 

Ask any guide when there favorite time to float is and you’d be hard pressed to find anyone name another month besides October. This is when we always catch the biggest browns off the year on the biggest flies.  The leaves have turned, the kids are back in school and the summer “rafting  hatch” is over.  This means the only noise to interrupt the sound of the river and amazing scenery is big streamers going SPLAT against an undercut bank!  

We are offering this great  $100 off float special to get you on the water when the fishing is at its best!

Forward this email to those you may know who might like to float this fall.

It’s time to nail down your 2024 fly fishing trip with Minturn Anglers.
