Rocky Mountain Flycasters and Trout Unlimited

RMF 2014 Youth Day Camp

Our 2014 Youth Conservation and Fly Fishing Day Camp is now several weeks ago and a memory, but a great memory. Dennis Cook, Youth Outreach Chair and Camp Director says, “…this may have been the consistently highest caliber group of campers of all our five camps.” We have a gallery of photos from our days at camp and invite you to look through all the activities. See the six-day photo gallery and read more of the events in the August Flypaper newsletter.

RMF at McMurry Natural Area

A terrific day to be out with Rocky Mountain Flycasters and members of the Natural Area Department of Fort Collins. Fourteen volunteers turned out to assist with some reconstruction work at the McMurry Natural Area. The area was heavily altered by the floods of September 2013.
Projects included an overflow channel, a line collecting unit, decking a boardwalk, as well as working on edges of natural trails. See more pictures on our conservation page.

Spring and Summer Have Volunteers Bustin' Out All Over

With the weather warming up and the snows starting to melt, there is more opportunity to spend time outside. The next best thing to being outside fishing is spending time with others ensuring that fishing opportunities will continue into the future. Rocky Mountain Flycasters members and others make certain that happens with a number of activities and programs.

We have planned construction and trail work that will have an immediate impact as well as youth programs that encourage the next generation. Spend as little as half a day, or dedicate a week of your time. Some of the work can be labor intensive or as easy as helping a youngster tie knots. Take a look at our volunteer page to see where you can contribute. We will appreciate your help now and long into the future.


Trout Unlimited has been notified that a 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.
