Well, I said I would be back and I did go back, in fact I have just returned to England after an experience that will stay long in my memory.
After my rather negative fishing trip last November, this time it was everything and more.
The reason being that this time I was privileged to have had 2 days fishing the Colorado river with the most amazing angler I have ever had the good fortune to meet in more than 20 years of fly fishing. That man was Terry Gunn, owner of Cliff Dwellers. Terry has an incredible knowledge of this river and all the relevant information that is needed for a successful fishing trip. The enjoyment of my 3 night stay at Cliff Dwellers was completed by the helpful and friendly attitude of the staff of the shop and restaurant plus the company of my " new friend "
Brian from Phoenix who was my fellow angler for the duration of the trip.
Finally, you do not have to be an angler to enjoy the hospitality of the Cliff Dwellers, if you happen to be in the area for whatever reason, stay here, you will not be disappointed.
As for me, well, as I pointed out to Terry one day in the boat, I do really have only one complaint about the Cliff Dwellers and the fishing and that complaint is this " IT'S 5000 MILES MILES FROM WHERE I LIVE ! ! ! "
Tight line to everybody,
