Several years ago, a friend of mine who had moved to Alaska called to say he was flying back to Colorado to fish the brown trout spawning run on North Delaney Butte Lake. He planned to be here the second week of October, and wanted to know if I'd go along with him.
Personally, I thought he was nuts. I couldn't imagine anyone leaving Alaska to fly fish Colorado, but he had his reasons: He liked big browns, and, I suspect, he was just a little homesick too.
"We don't have any brown trout up here," he said. "Plus, I really miss Delaney Buttes." Fair enough, I thought. I agreed to go.
