[Editor’s note: Colorado angler and blogger Jon Hill reached a milestone recently, and he sent in these photos showing how he spent his special day.]
Spring is quietly sneaking up on us here in Colorado, and something else that snuck up was my fortieth birthday. So I figured what better way to spend it than to skip out on work and drag a couple of my friends to the river with me. So Tom, Matt, and I headed down to the legendary Dream Stream section of the South Platte and had a pretty decent day.
