Czech Nymphing with Domingo Rodriguez

Domingo Rodriguez
Domingo Rodgriguez shows the
results of Czech Nymphing
Do you need to find out what all the excitement is about with Czech nymphing? Why are catch rates among competitive fishers so high using the Czech technique? What do you need to get started? Where are the good places to use this increasingly popular technique? Do you need to add another fish catching skill to your bag of tricks?
At our March 18 meeting, Domingo will share some of his knowledge with you based on his fish-catching skills. Selecting the appropriate equipment, rod, reel, lines and leaders, using the best flies, locating fishable waters, and when the best time to use this technique are some of the topics that will be covered. Domingo will show you how you can catch fish that you never knew were in the water. It is time to try out some new techniques that will put you on fish.
As usual, our General Meetings are free and open to the public. Social hour begins at 6:30 pm at the Fort Collins Senior Center, and the program follows at 7:00 pm. We will have a local fly tyer at each general meeting and an equipment raffle following the meeting. The Fort Collins Senior Center is located at 1200 Raintree Drive off Shields Avenue between Prospect and Drake. Additional meeting information.

What is noteable and quotable? See the brand new Quotes and Notes on the calendar page. Perhaps something you’ve written or said is included. There is a new one for every day of the year.


Trout Unlimited has been notified that a company called Platinum Publishing sent out renewal invoices for TROUT magazine for $79.95 to some of our members. Please be advised that this is a SCAM and did not originate from TU’s offices. Please do not respond to these invoices, but rest assured tu.org and our Woolly Bugger, WV, post office box are fully operational, secure and ready to process dues and gifts. Pass this message along to the volunteers in your chapter.

Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Exclusives

Stop cross-water contamination!

Whirling disease. Dydimo. New Zealand Mud Snails. Chytrid fungus. These are very real threats to our waters. If you follow some very simple, inexpensive procedures, you can help curb the spread of these diseases. See Common Sense Disinfection Procedure by Phil Wright.

Inexpensive Wading staff

Are you as "sure footed" as you would like to be? Are you ready for the spring run-off? The raging spring torrents can quicky take your feet from under you. It could be that you might need a wading stick. Here’s how to build one out of inexpensive/used materials. Phil Wright put together this helpful HOW-TO (pdf 412 KB) so you can have your own hand-crafted wading stick.
