I met up with Zen Leecher to fish and learn a little more about Rocky Ford yesterday. First of all I should say that Bill is a terrific guy and fun to fish with. He pretty much gave me a guided tour and lesson in his methods of fishing the ford. To start off we walked down to the faster, skinnier water. Not to far down we found a little run with some rising fish. We tried various small flies under foam indicators and even some small dries. Bill got a small fish and LDRed a larger one. I got tons of strikes, but no hook ups. For some reason I was getting more strikes on my dirty green fly line than on the fly. We moved down a ways to a little run that spills into a pool. Bill started getting fish and hook ups right away and was catching consistently for a while. I was a little lower down and not having quite as good luck, but did manage a fish or two. Bill graciously invited me to fish his spot where I got another couple. All the fish were in the 9-11" range. Most were on small soft hackles or nymphs under the indicator, but Bill got at least one on a dry. They were my first fish at RF so I was pretty happy. Bill was wishing for something a little bit bigger. We also fished the slower sections up a little higher. We tried several different methods including dead drifting a scud and Ira's "scud on a rock" method. I remember bill getting another small fish, but no large ones. I didn't have any luck at all in those sections. I had a great time, learned much about RF and fishing with an indicator. I look forward to more trips and figuring out how to catch the big ones.
