I tend to gripe about problems but seldom blow off steam about the good experiences. So for a change: I just returned from fishing a couple days ago with a great guide. This guy knows his stuff! He was worth every single penny, and more. His name is Greg Blessing; his web site is www.troutblessing.com. My buddy and I fished with him on the 11 Mile (8 Mile) Canyon area of the South Platte in Colorado. This is the 2nd year he has guided us, and I could not ask for someone who was more knowledgeable--and patient with a couple "duffer" fly fishermen.
