- December 9: RMF Holiday Party
Join with us in sharing some holiday cheer. Rocky Mountain Flycasters will host a Holiday Party on Thursday, December 9th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. This festive occasion starts off with social time and a cash bar, followed by a wide variety of hors d'œuvres. We will also have a Fly Tree raffle so bring a few flies to share and hang on the tree. We will also be having our infamous White Elephant Gift Exchange. (One hopes that gorgeous fish lamp will be part of the exchange.) We will be raffling off one of our excellent rods also.
This is the one holiday party you don't want to miss—a highlight of the season with fun, food, and friends. Be sure to be there and bring your spouse or significant other.
Tickets are $10 per person for this party at C.B. & Potts-Restaurant & Brewery at Collindale Golf Course on East Horsetooth. See this MapQuest page for directions.
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.
