Money can buy you everything, except the time it takes to be a good fly fisherman. I have spent a great deal of time trying to become a good fly fisherman and long enough to learn that the fool say he knoweth, while the wise man knows he is a fool. One of the best tips to becoming successful is to always check the water flow conditions before setting out for fishing. In Colorado, there is a website for water conditions. You can check all of the segments of various water ways, for instance, the South Platte below Cheeseman Reservoir is found here.
And we enjoy taking our adventures further from home, often with others we have met from our membership with the International Fario Club.
