The production of “Small Stream Colorado” took me into the heart of John Denver’s renown Rocky Mountain high country near the Taylor River Lodge. Together with my wife and work partner, Kelley, I met up with Eleven Experience’s Colorado Fly Fishing Manager John Bocchino. John’s longtime knowledge of local streams and Colorado summer hatches made for a fun adventure to catch beautiful, small trout on dry flies.
Typical summer weather in the Rockies brought us the occasional thunderstorm, radiant wildflowers in bloom and of course the manic eruption of summer insect hatches. John’s music and stories added to the telling of this Colorado summer fly fishing story. Thanks to Eleven Experience, Taylor River Lodge, Orvis and Bauer Fly Reels for their generous support. And special thanks to John Bocchino for his time and enthusiasm for the project.
