I fly fish!! We've gone to New Mexico/ southern Colorado for years with Van Beachem.
fished the frying pan, roaring forked, san juan, green, east and west mareno, middle fork, charee, and some others but my favorite has always been this little river in san louis Colorado called the Calebra. I have some pics somewhere I'll look them up, I think on solitary angler they have pics of me when I was younger with some trophies. I think the two that made me the most proud were the one time I landed two browns on a dry and a nymph at the same time, and of course my 27" brown that was over ten pounds because she was full of eggs.

@ Rattfink Tying flies is really not that hard. PM me and I can give you some great videos/ books to get. You'll want a vice and a few other tools but start with something simple like a woolly booger and go on from there. I seem to remember you being in Texas. So wooly Boogers, popping bugs ETC would be good flies to make and are realitively simple. If I can do it with one hand you can.
