- November 27: Larimer County - Big Thompson land sale meeting, 5:30 PM at the Bison Center. Lands federally purchased after the Big Thompson Flood are being considered for resale back to private parties. At stake—among other things—may be the loss of public access to the river. This would be a good time to express our opinion about the sale of these lands. Several RMF board members are planning on attending the meeting. Contact the webmaster to be put in touch if you would like to join them.
The meeting will be 5:30pm on Nov 27 at their Bison Center—located at 1800 so. County Road 31, just north of Carter lake, near the Flatiron turnoff. Map.
- November 28: Board Meeting at 7:30.
The meeting will be hosted by Ken Eis. Members are welcome to attend any board meeting. Check with a Board Member to find out where the meeting is being held or check the Board Members’ section on the RMF forum.
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.
