Orvis Superfine – As Smooth as it Gets…

It’s runoff in Colorado and many of our streams are at dangerous levels to wade and fish…

Now is the time to grab your backpack and hiking boots and head to a high country lake for some prime ice off fishing for wild trout.   High country lake destinations like Colorado’s Flat Tops, Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park provide high country anglers with a lifetime of access to true “wild” fisheries filled with abundant bug life and healthy trout populations.

A little shoe leather might have been worn getting to this spot but views like this are timeless in the end…

On a recent trip to a Rocky Mountain National Park lake that we aren’t going to give away (you are just going to have to find it yourself) we had the opportunity to put a handful of Orvis Superfine Rods to the test. Matched with furled leaders and small beetle and ant patterns we were able to put some nice Colorado high country trout in the net.
