Holiday Update and 2016 Brief

Everyone seemed to have a rousing good time at the Holiday Party and there were still brownies on the table when we left, so it didn’t seem that anyone went away hungry. If you were not able to make it to the Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Holiday Party on December 11, you missed another great one.

opening of the packages.
As people arrived, many added a few flies to the two fly trees. There was an estimate of over ninety flies on each tree. Dry flies included many huge terrestrials and smaller adult aquatic flies. There were emergers and a large selection and variety of nymphs. Streamers large and small also adorned the trees.

As always, the white elephant gift exchange was a riotous affair. Participants could select an unopened package or take one that had already been opened. 20151211DRodriquez

There were quite a few opportunities taken to opt for some present that had been revealed and caught the next person’s fancy. Trustee and Program Coordinator Domingo Rodriguez seems to select boxes that seemed to appeal to others, who promptly stole them!
 
Holiday cheer was shared with fish stories, year end reminiscences, anticipation of a new year on our home waters and others, as well as the knowledge that the new year would also bring more challenges for the ecosystems of our watersheds.
 
For 2016, we have a great lineup of monthly programs including our Annual Fly Tying Expo in February and fishing trips possibly starting the same month. We have also been actively working on restoration of the damage done by the 2012 High Park Fire and the floods of 2013. Behind the scenes, funds have been raised for additional work during the 2016 season. Is it time for you to devote a half day or a full day to this restoration? Watch for volunteer opportunities as we move into the new year.
 
There are also opportunities to serve on the RMF board in several capacities making our chapter better able to meet the challenges we face. Feel free to contact our RMF President Wil Huett with your interest.
