Post-Interview Fishing Trip

After an almost-full summer in the mountains, I realized that I wasn't ready to go back to the real world, so I started looking at jobs at ski resorts.  My dream when I was in elementary school was to be a fly fishing guide in the summer and a ski instructor in the winter.  After checking the fly fishing guide box this summer, I figured I might as well look into life as a ski instructor.

One of the few resorts I looked into was Crested Butte, which is less than two hours from Lake City.  After sending in some applications, I hit the road for an interview in CB.  Once that was over, I went straight to the Taylor River to catch the early afternoon hatches.  The wind was extremely strong, but some bugs were on the water, and the fishing was good for a couple of hours.
