    Not to steal creeks thunder on getting a new rod, but finally good fortune came my way. I just bought a 8′ 6″ 3wt Redington Trout Classic for $75. It’s never been used! ☺

    Good deal at half price.

    I see where you bought it. I was looking at it too.

    I always seem to be a day late or ten dollars short when it comes to a good find. This was a good find, and a find unexpected. I’ve been wanting a longer 3wt for the RMNP or Boulder Creek below Nederland.

    Scotty…………Here’s a like to a lot of Olivers videos and some other well known fisherman. Not sure this guy is supposed to be posting all these. I know some of them come from Olivers CD’s he sells. You might as well enjoy them. Watch one and then hit the back button to go back to the list.

    Thank you Creek. I will look at them tonight. But since we are on the subject of Oliver, which brings me to W.c. Stewart, and I just finished his book, I have a question, and I hope I ask this right.

    Stewart mentioned using may flies in April & May. This is in Scotland, which is farther north than we are, and naturally cooler in temp because of it. Now here in Colo., & only speaking of Colo., we are below the longitude that they are, and naturally warmer. If they start fishing may flies in April and May, would it be the equivalent for us to start in March because we are in a warmer hemisphere? Or does our elevation being higher than the U.K. play a major role?

    This is where you tell me, KISS. LOL. But I think it’s something to think about.

    I think we’re colder than Scotland depending on where in Colorado we’re talking about. At least the same no matter where we’re talking about. They’re closer to the ocean and have much different weather.

    With that said. We can get BWO hatches in March. Actually, we can fish BWO’s year around if conditions are right.

    WOW! Take a look at Oliver tying a green drake. I don’t have the patience to tie a fly like this. It takes him 40 min.

    After watching him tie the Green Drake, I have no problem with buying them from the local shop. But the ones at the shop do not look near as beautiful as Oliver’s. There is no way I could consistently do that. I like watching him tie flies, and he is a master no doubt. They are too nice looking to fish with, but I guess if you’re Oliver, you can just make more of them.

    As for the temps in Scotland, I pulled this up. It’s very well done.

    I don’t know about you Creek, but if I win power ball before you, I’m buying the United Kingdom. Then I can quote Stephen in Braveheart, “it’s my island.” And you would all be welcome to fish there, my treat.

    You have to remember, they may be in lower elevation, like Calif. But, they have that darn cold wind coming off the North Sea and North Atlantic. It’s not sunny Calif. Or Colorado for that matter. And don’t forget the humidity. It is humid there as well.

    You’re the second guy who showed me that web site about Clyde flies. I have no interest in winged flies. I’ll stick to spiders.

    I knew you wouldn’t like it creek, but maybe some of the other guys here might.
