Flies & Tying (A How-To) Expo
Rocky Mountain Flycasters chapter of Trout Unlimited presents its annual Fly Tying Expo Wednesday February 20th. Experienced and beginning tiers will have a chance to learn from the area’s best guides, authors and designers. A beginners bench will offer those who "have always wanted to try that" the opportunity to create their own first fly.
The Expo will take place at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive, Fort Collins, Colorado. Doors open at 5:30 pm. A meal and raffle entries are included in ticket price.
Funds raised at the event support chapter conservation and education projects, including restoring the fishing pier on the Big Thompson River, greenback trout restoration in George and Cornelius Creeks and the upper Poudre Basin, and the annual Teen Conservation and Fly Fishing Day Camp. More information as it becomes available.
Rocky Mountain Flycasters was the tenth chapter authorized by Trout Unlimited, the nation’s largest coldwater conservation agency, and is thirty-five years old.

Note of the Day:
At the turn of the century, the lower Beaver Kill in New York State was too warm and polluted for trout, due to extensive clearcutting, paper mills, and tanneries along its banks. The banks are now forested, the tanneries and mills are long gone, but this river is still a sensitive ecosystem, threatened by roads and housing developments. —Tom Rosenbauer
