- March 4: Social Fly Tying for Members of Rocky Mountain Flycasters
Rocky Mountain Flycasters members gather 6 pm the first Wednesday of the month for a little Pub 'N ' Dub at the Gilded Goat. It’s free, including your guest!
Each sponsored session features a different fly to tie. Some members come and simply enjoy the company of others while tying. If you are a beginner, or need to come straight from work, we will have loaner tools and equipment available.
The pattern for March is Rick Takahashi’s “Bow Tie Buzzer”, a productive Chironomid pattern that accounts for lots of trout in local stillwaters, especially after iceout! Preview the video for an introduction.
Marty Staab will be hosting this event, so contact him by email with any questions or to RSVP. Please include a comment to to let him know if you intend to participate in the featured pattern, and especially if we can help provide tools and a vise.
- March 5: Colorado Trout Unlimited River Stewardship Gala
Details to be released as they become available.
- March 11: RMF Board Meeting at 6:00 PM. Members are welcome to attend any board meeting. Check with a Board Member for the meeting location and/or agenda.
- March 18: Special Membership Meeting
Due to overriding concerns about the novel corona virus pandemic and based on guidance from Trout Unlimited National and Colorado Trout Unlimited, the Board of the Rocky Mountain Flycasters has unanimously decided to cancel this scheduled meeting.
This decision was made after significant discussion and feelings by the board that we should err on the side of caution rather than risk the illness of even a single member.
As of now, we will still hold our next meeting scheduled for April 15.
At the January Leadership Meeting, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to recommend the Bylaws amendments to the general membership for approval. Approval requires a 2/3 majority vote of those in attendance and only current TU members may vote.
The current Bylaws, proposed new Bylaws and major changes that are proposed may be viewed on our website and voting will take place at a future date to be announced.
Rocky Mountain Flycasters was the tenth chapter authorized by Trout Unlimited, the nation’s largest coldwater conservation agency, and is more than thirty-five years old. Current chapter conservation projects include restoration of native Greenback cutthroats and scientific monitoring of local waters. Additional meeting information.
- March 24: Fish the Poudre at Gateway
Cancelled Join host Mark Miller for some spring fishing at Gateway Park on the Poudre River. Just a stone’s throw up the canyon, this delightful area can produce some surprising fish. See our fishing page.
Note of the Day:
You can often locate a hatch of May flies on a stream by the swallows collecting in the area to feed on them.
