Anglers, it's time to pick out a summer wardrobe

With the snowy Sangre de Cristo range as a backdrop, Roger Welles fly-fishes on the Arkansas River just east of Cotopaxi Thursday, March 15. 2012. The temperature in nearby Canon City hit 75 degrees Thursday and Welles said he couldn't pass up the chance to get on the river. He said he lives in Canon City and fishes the Arkansas year-round.
