Logging some shop time…

The Lobby Entrance of The St. Regis Aspen
(AOC is through the doors and to your left…)
Today is a Saturday, which is traditionally kind of slow. I’ve been in the shop since 7:30AM, we had a shooting trip go out at 8:00AM, and we have several fishing trips thisafternoon/evening. But at the east end of the St. Regis lobby right now, things are kind of quiet and slow. In the interest of keeping sane, and also in an attempt to draw any wandering guests into the shop, I am playing a fly-fishing classic on one of the video monitors… That’s right folks, we are watching the Gary Borger South Island Sampler. Mr. Borger, a perennial favorite with the Wrangler Jeans wearing, hankerchief-around-the-neck, Slouchy hat and Poloroid Glasses old-school fishing club, is viciously assaulting some Sea-run Rainbows on the South Island of New Zealand. Awesomeness ensues…
WOW, I am getting kind of bored. I guess that its time to bring my vest and rods into the shop and do some reorganizing and rigging for my trip thisafternoon. I am wicked excited about each and every trip at this time of year because the Roaring Fork has been fishing extremely well, and I am looking forward to getting my net around a couple of big browns. The Green Drakes have finally made it to the upper part of the river, and evening trips have been having huge success with H&L Variants, Royal and White Wulffs, and pretty much anything else that is big and fluffy and floats.
Due to the pace of the day, you may hear from me again later thisafternoon, but I will definitely give an update when I get back after dark…
