Free Fishing Day

Last Saturday was free fishing day in Colorado. Because we're still "non-residents", we decided to capitolize and go fishing. It's an insane $56 or so for a non-resident license, so we decided that we'd keep our money until we can be residents and pay the substantially less license fee. A side note- Colorado makes you give your social security number to buy a license- yet another one of the crazy things that makes us go "GRRR".

Ashley's been learning to tie flies. Right now she's great at tying beadhead wooly buggers. We decided to take a few of our new-made friends out for an adventure and went to the Riverbend Ponds. The ponds were really full of little sunfish and bluegill. We caught a bunch, but even more fun: Ash caught a few with flies that she tied!
