T.F.M. Spotting - Into Valles Caldera

Michael Clayton recently enjoyed a day trip into the Valles Caldera National Reserve in New Mexico on his BMW motorcycle with fly gear carefully stowed in his panniers. 

Mike sent along a few photographs for the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest of him wearing his T.F.M. shirt and he gets extra credit points for the T.F.M. decal on his bike as well.

At home on the highway and off road and reminding all that follow him that GLASS IS NOT DEAD.

Mike took along his Steffen 8' 3/4 weight fiberglass fly rod which is perfect for open meadow small stream work with small terrestrials.

The trout may not be large but they are plentiful to the point that the park service asks that a few be taken home for dinner which Mike gladly did. 

To read more about Mike's trip see the full report on the Fiberglass Flyrodders forum.
