- January 21: General Meeting at 6:30 PM at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Dr., Fort Collins. January is the month for our All-Tiers meeting.
Typically this meeting brings in 8-10 professional and highly skilled fly tiers who share their techniques and secrets. This year, we will feature Eric Pattine, Rick Takahashi, Jim Choi, Gordon Waldmier, Greg Sheets and others. For a $15 entrance fee, you will get 15 raffle tickets for a variety of items, not the least of which will be the flies the tiers tie as you watch. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided at no further charge.
Come learn techniques and ideas as you interact with some of the region’s best tiers. See "When and Where."

Note of the Day:
The first school or college…to have fly tying and fly fishing as a credited course in America was Pennsylvania State College.
