Thanks! Yea - I am definitely not concerned in the slightest about my photography skills at this point. Just trying to focus on getting out there and having fun!
I will definitely check out that guide down in Pagosa!
I finally bit the bullet and became a true Coloradan - I bought a fly fishing rig. If any of you thrifters come across any good deals on gear while you are out and about, I'd love a shot at buying it from ya!
