HOWLER DISPATCH: Getting Western

Posted on August 2, 2018

The term getting western is usually overused or over exaggerated. It’s something that us “non westerners” like to poke fun at.. that being said.. Things got WESTERN this past week. We kicked off our trip with a pit stop into one of the most beautiful mountain towns in America, Buena Vista, Colorado!  

We floated down Browns Canyon National Monument and managed to catch a few fish. The town has some breathtaking views of the 14rs, some of the nicest most hospitable people you will ever meet, and some dang good whisky. If you find yourself out in the 1 stop light town of BV make sure to go taste some for yourself at the Deer Hammer. We had a great time hanging out with the crew at the Trailhead and enjoyed meeting all the people who came by to say hey!

Colorado is known for several things, one of the main things is its incredible rivers filled with fish. With that comes the need for good guides and good fly shops. We had the great opportunity of experiencing both of those this past week with Minturn Anglers and Trouts Fly Fishing! We had so much fun hanging out with everyone and look forward to getting back to Colorado to visit again soon.

In the midst of everything we got to hangout in Denver for a few days for OR! It's always a blast meeting new people at events like that, and OR was no exception. It was a true pleasure hanging with everyone there.  Thanks for following along! Now it's time for us to get back to “getting western.”
