- January 20: General Meeting—Fly Tying Expo
Rocky Mountain Flycasters will host their annual Fly Tying Expo on January 20, 2010 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM at the Fort Collins Senior Center. We expect that 15 or more noted regional fly tiers will be demonstrating their craft and answering your questions. The admission price of $15 will include pizza and soft drinks and 15 raffle tickets for a variety of items, not the least of which will be the flies the tiers tie as you watch. Students under 18 will be admitted free with student ID. This event was very popular last year and we hope that you will join us for this once a year opportunity.
Come learn techniques and ideas as you interact with some of the region’s best tiers. See "When and Where."
See pictures from the last All-Tiers meeting.
Social hour at 6:30 at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Dr., Fort Collins. Meeting announcements promptly at 7 p.m., with the program to immediately follow. Hope to see you there, and bring a friend!

Note of the Day:
In the last pool of Ettrick, the water flowed by a steep bank, and, if you cast almost on to the further side, you were perfectly safe to get fish, even when the river was very low. The flies used, three on a cast, were small and dusky, hare’s ear and woodcock wing, black palmers, or, as Stoddart sings,
Wee dour looking hulks are the thing,
Mouse body and laverock wing.
