- January 5: Board Meeting
Members are welcome to attend any board meeting. Check with a Board Member to find out where the meeting is being held.
- January 19: General Meeting: Joel King, a native Coloradoan, with more than 30 years of fishing in Colorado and Wyoming, more than ten years guiding in the alpine Rockies will be sharing some of his flies and fishing techniques. Joel is the owner of Joel King Gear, Kingfisher Flies and a designer of foam patterns. As a still water guru, he has created flies for the times when there seem to be no hatches. His flies have been published in Northwest Fly Fishing and Southwest Fly Fishing magazines.
In his free time, Joel pursues steelhead all over the western and midwestern rivers of the U.S.A. Partnering with Brian Shipley of Kingfisher Drifters, they work together on tying and designing flies, guided trips, and promoting the sport of fly fishing.
Social hour begins at 6:30, and the Program follows at 7:00. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The Fort Collins Senior Center is located at 1200 Raintree Drive off Shields Avenue between Prospect and Drake. Additional meeting information.
Note of the Day:
At the turn of the century, the lower Beaver Kill in New York State was too warm and polluted for trout, due to extensive clearcutting, paper mills, an tanneries along its banks. The banks are now forested, the tanneries and mills are long gone, but this river is still a sensitive ecosystem, threatened by roads and housing developments. —Tom Rosenbauer
