- October 11: General Meeting at 6:30 PM at the Hilton. See "When and Where." Local waters
We are happy to have Ken Eis back speaking to us on Fishing Local Waters: Where to go beyond the Big Thompson or Poudre Rivers. Ken is a veteran fly fisher of almost three decades. He has fished Europe, New Zealand, Alaska, and Wyoming. But, what we like best about Ken is his desire to explore and fish the local waters of Northern Colorado on any given weekend. His wife Jackie and Ken are virtual experts on RMNP, and have hiked countless miles following rainbows and rumors. Off the water Ken is very analytical, but on the water his love for nature and fishing come through in his stunning photographs and rich stories. Join us to hear a very well-put-together talk of where to fish off the beaten path but a short drive away. Ken has done the leg work, now you are in for an entertaining and very informative talk about our backyard. Bring a pencil and paper!
As an added bonus, after the meeting Ken will talk separately on fishing the Poudre river, leading you mile marker by mile marker to the best spots. With photos and a river map offered through our chapter, this is a sure-fire way to jump start your knowledge of your home waters.
Social hour and fly tying demo at 6:30. Meeting announcements promptly at 7 PM, with the speaker to immediately follow. Hope to see you there, and bring a friend!

Note of the Day:
...[bridge pools are] often overlooked by fly fishers because these places are fished by everyone, especially bait fishers who usually remove the largest trout from a river. However, invariably, pools under bridges harbor a couple of monster brown trout who are canny enough to survive seasonal barrages of worms, spinners, and flies. source unknown
