    @abesmotel Love the abes motel, but you know as well as I know, that even though it has the MOST fish per sq mile, it is the “yuppie-est” damn river known in the flyfishing world.
    I quit my job and fished the Juan everyday for 11 months, and after a while it kinda grossed me out: diseased, deformed, long skinny unhealthy trout with embedded size 14 san juan worms stuck to em’ . I saw seasoned guides doing the san juan shuffle trying to snag fish and then said no more.

    @abesmotel Im a trout/steelhead/salmon bum and I go all over the world, and I mean everywhere, I even flyfished Afghanistan… aint nuthun like it, good size and PLENTY of em. Its one of the few rivers in the west where a 5 wt is too light. 10 years ago: 1st time on the Juan ever, 1st cast after studying the area for an hour….I threw a #24 emerger at 25′ rainbow on 7x tippet. Used a 10 ft 4 wieght! The fish was more tired than me. So I went back to the RV, I got my 6 wt. then quit my job
