We are fly fishing at Lincoln Hills located in the mountains near Blackhawk. The weather is cold with off and on rain; however, the trout are not worried about the weather, just people do that. We will be fishing with Wounded Warriors and Craig Hospital patients. We start with casting, knot tying and equipment lessons. After that we pair up with our guides, some go to the river and others to the pond. The river is fast and high so fishing will be difficult, the pond is perfect and the trout hungry. We pull some monsters out and the Vets fishing the river manage to land some big ones as well. Everyone is having a great time and we manage to stay dry.

A big thanks to Lincoln Hills, Anglers of Honor and all the guides and staff!

It’s a cool morning at Lincoln Hills located in the mountains at Blackhawk, Colorado. We have Wounded Vets from Operation TBI and Freedom Hunters, and we start off with some coffee and pastries. Then we receive instruction from the expert staff of Lincoln Hills core fly fishing program. Waders and rods are handed out to all of the vets. We are fortunate enough to have one on one instruction both off and on the water. We head to the creek and the fun begins, both small and large rainbows are caught, most of the Vets are beginners and are having a great time. At 12:30 we head up to the lodge for a gourmet lunch. It’s been a  great day and a big thanks to the staff of Lincoln Hills!

It’s a cool Colorado morning. In the Colorado Rockies the leaves are turning and the elk are bugling. We have a group of Wounded Warriors and Craig Hospital patients for a day of fly fishing in the ponds and creek followed by a gourmet lunch. We start with the basics of fly fishing and some information on what trout do every day depending on water temperature and food.

We also have some students from University of Colorado Boulder. When the instruction is done we head to the creek and ponds with our guides. There are some hookups with some big trout rainbows, browns and cutthroats. After a great morning of fishing we head to the lodge for lunch and conversation, it’s been a great day!
