Colorado's Anthracite Creek

Dave Buchanan fishes Anthracite Creek in Dark Canyon, where there seems to be no shortage of water or fish. “The beauty of fishing small streams is the fish usually are eager to hit any sort of fly pattern, and most attractor patterns seem to catch fish. While a Stimulator was working for Morris, another angler downstream was tossing a Royal Coachman with fair results, while his partner was using a House and Lot Variant, the pattern preferred by former President Eisenhower when he’d fish Colorado in the 1950s.” In the Grand Junction Sentinel.
