another really cold fishing day

we decided to try another day of fishing up on the south platte river. on the way through woodland park we stopped at the donut mill for the world's biggest donuts.

we scoped out a new spot near the happy meadows campground, but the stream was still completely frozen over there. we got a chance to use the new gps, which went really well except for one little side trip down a road that may or may not exist which involved more 4 wheel drive action than i care for.

we ended up settling at our favorite spot in elevenmile canyon. it was COLD- ice kept freezing up the eyelets on my rod, and i kept having to take frequent breaks to shelter in the car and regain feeling in my fingers. but around noon the fish started hoppin and we caught one fish after another (future note to self: gray midge size 20, 7x tippet)

all the pictures are here.
