P-Town Pig!

 Long time friend and fellow guide Brett Penvose shows off some color..... and the hog rainbow has great color too. Brett took this 26" fatty bow on the Arkansas River tail water below the Pueblo dam on a #16 Red Thunder on Aug 31st.
  Brett has been one of my fishing buddies for many years and I have watched him dedicate him-self to being one of the best on the Arkansas River and every other water shed he fishes. I am happy to say Brett joined up with us on the SoCo crew guiding for Royal Gorge Anglers, so if you are interested in booking a guided trip on the Pueblo tail water, South Platte or upper Arkansas, contact the fly fishing experts at

  Outside Magazine gives the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) some much deserved recognition by naming it in the top 5 state parks in the United States.
  From it's beginnings in Leadville Colorado, the Arkansas river carves it's way through the Sawatch Mountain range 150 miles, providing class II through V rapids proving why it is the most commercially rafted river in the country. Along with the rafting, kayaking and other white water sports, the AHRA State Park provides camping, hiking, rock climbing and In my opinion, some of the best fly fishing to be found anywhere.
   I encourage everyone to take full advantage of all our wonderful state park has to offer, and always leave it in better condition then when you found it.
