Rocky Mountain Flycasters and Trout Unlimited
CTU wants your opinion
Colorado Trout Unlimited is administering a brief online survey of members that should take only about five minutes of your time to fill in and send. The results of this survey will help CTU plan to meet our needs as members.
The survey can be found at salsalabs.com. Contribute your opinion.
Czech Nymphing with Domingo Rodriguez
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.

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.
