When Curtis is off the water, you might just find him luxuriating at the beautiful George Washington Hotel in historic Winchester, Virginia. "At The George Washington, A Wyndham Grand Hotel the pristine beauty of the Shenandoah Valley has truly met its match. With elegant marble flooring, soaring ceiling heights and the original front desk, this Georgian Revival-style hotel, still has all the appeal and ambiance of a bygone era. Completed in 1924, we offer old-world charm, but don't worry, we're not old fashioned. Here you'll have every modern convenience a traveler could want. In fact, the hotel was fully restored in 2008 after a thoughtful $30 million renovation. Since we're found in old-town Winchester, Virginia, just one hour outside Washington, D.C., you can enjoy bucolic charm with none of the chaos of the nation's capital."
It's more than just the fishing, although this is arguably the finest trout fishing destination you may never have heard of, water ranging from tiny rivulets of spring creeks to high canyon rivers and lakes that hold Browns, Brookies, Rainbows, and Cutthroats that will leave you breathless. Here is one of the few places on earth where you can fish for the exquisite and elusive Rio Grande Cutthroat, a very unique trout that those entrusted with this precious resource have gone to truly extraordinary lengths to see reintroduction into their native habitat here in the San Juan Mountains of Northern New Mexico.
Instead, it is the love of the resource and the deeply embedded awareness by those who have lived here for countless generations of what this land and these waters can truly be. If only cared for with the dignity, respect and stewardship they deserve.
