President’s Beat

Messages from the President of Rocky Mountain Flycasters.

November 10, 2010

Lee Evans

After having what I consider to be a very successful year, it seems only fitting that we start our new fiscal year with an effort to increase our membership. Bryon Fessler, our membership chairman, has been working very hard to make this meeting special for all of us. Greg Evans successfully booked Landon Mayer to speak to us and share his many years of experience with us. Dennis Cook recruited Jake Ruthven to tell us about his experiences in our first ever Youth Fly Fishing and Conservation camp. We have all pitched in to make the raffle table better than ever. It’s shaping up to be a great meeting, and I really hope you’ll bring a friend or two to learn more about us as well as getting some timely fishing tips from one of the best in the west.

Also, we’re looking ahead to another Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Holiday Party, complete with a rod raffle, a fly tree raffle, and our own hilarious White Elephant exchange. The party is scheduled for December 9 at C.B. & Potts’ Collindale location on east Horsetooth. More details on our calendar.

In January, we will hear from Brian Shipley about fishing the Delaney Buttes Lakes. Perhaps you’ve seen his article in Southwest Fly Fishing magazine and we expect more details as he shares his experiences with us. February will be our Fly Tying Expo and details will be out about that soon.

We recently tallied up our volunteer hours for a report to TU, and this chapter recorded nearly 6,000 hours of work on behalf of coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. For all of you that gave some time to our cause, I say thank you. We are making a difference and it feels good.

I’m looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday the 17th. Here’s hoping one of your raffle tickets is drawn and that you soon find a time to catch a whopper using some ideas learned at our meetings.

Fish on, Lee Evans
