Summer on Clear Creek

It's the middle of winter, but I'm still thinking of warm summer days spent fly fishing for brown trout on Clear Creek just outside of Denver on Colorado's front range.

This footage comes from a few days on Clear Creek last year just above the canyon reach.  Elk hair caddis and assorted nymphs, including medallion midges, fooled these small brown trout holding in the slower edges of the creek.

Although it's cold out now, it's the thoughts of these lively fish that keep me dreaming of summer fly fishing which isn't really that far away.  Is it?
