Stunning water. The Crystal River in Colorado.

Hi fellow fellow fly fishers!

I fished the Crystal in Colorado on the Saturday morning of our Frying Pan trip. Our campsite was right on the river, so it just made sense to roll out and start fishing without too much of a drive.

My goodness is this river stunning!

To my eyes, two things in particular make it so: Gin clear water that also manages to have a light blue, glacial kind of tint, and a substrate made up of big boulders that are many different colors (no doubt due to the varied geology in this valley - sandstone, granite, and marble).

(If you are interested, you can read the full post and see all the pictures HERE)
