Video: Top Five Dry Flies for July 2018


Written by: Phil Monahan


This month’s “Top 5” video from Trouts Fly Fishing in Denver is all about dry flies. I mean, who goes to the Rockies in July to fish anything else? Tanner Smith is joined by Garrison and Corinne Doctor, and they all get in on the surface action. As a friendly reminder, Colorado (like elsewhere in the West) is seeing low water and elevated water temperatures, both of which stress the fish. Get on the water early, increase the size of your tippet, and check water temperatures with a thermometer to ensure the safety of the fishery.
