Just got back from a PM fishing trip to some of our private water on the illustrious upper Roaring Fork River. We fished at the Phillip’s family property, a lease that we have maintained for almost 20 years, and it was spectacular. I was fishing with Dana Winkler, who is an accomplished fisherman and a first- time client for AOC, and we netted 10 good sized trout. The fishing started a little late, probably becoming really active around 7PM. With the exception of two rainbows, all the fish were beautiful healthy browns. My father’s favorite fly (sorry, not telling…) was working really well, and the sunset was a beautiful addition to the evening. I worked really hard on this trip (and the one with Dana and his wonderful wife Susan last night) to provide the ‘bespoke’ service that the St. Regis is striving to make a key part of its brand. The Winklers seemed to be really happy with their experience, and I am looking forward to seeing them again in the future. Now home for a quick dinner and an early bedtime.
