- December 10: Board Meeting.
- December 11: Holiday party: The annual Christmas Holiday Party will be held at Manno’s Grill at Collindale, 1441 E. Horsetooth Rd., at the corner of Horsetooth and Lemay in Fort Collins starting at 6:30 p.m.
A $15.00 entrance fee will provide you with light snack foods and a raffle ticket for some exciting gifts provided by Rocky Mountain Flycasters. Manno’s will provide a cash bar.
All those bringing a wrapped white elephant gift will be able to take part in the hilarity of the white elephant gift exchange. We encourage members to include their spouses in this fun evening. What a great opportunity to share the cheer of the holiday season with fellow Flycasters!
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.
