Last winter we were posted up in Northern New Mexico shooting commercial work for Taos Ski Valley. After we wrapped with the ski resort, we stuck around to explore the surrounding area. A friend from Colorado drove down for a week of fishing in the Rio Grande del Norte. It was February and the water was high. Regardless we still gave it our all. Entire days went without even seeing a fish. The small browns we did bring to hand were the result of hundreds of casts and hours of concentration to get it just right. That week was some good fishing, but it would’ve been nice to do a bit more catching too.
