2016 Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Holiday Party

Online sales end Wednesday 7 December!
After that, tickets will be $20 at the door.

It is the season again. Rocky Mountain Flycasters is holding a Holiday Party. Please make plans to attend on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at C.B. & Potts’ Collindale, at 1441 East Horsetooth Road. (The W. Elizabeth location is closed.) We will start socializing at 6:30, eat from 7:00 to 8:00, then have the infamous White Elephant Gift Exchange, raffle drawings for the two fly trees and a brand new fly rod.

Cost this year will be $15.00 per person for tickets purchased online (below). Tickets at the door will be $20 per person. Everyone will get heavy hors d'œuvres from the C.B. & Potts kitchen and raffle tickets. If you wish to participate in the White Elephant exchange, bring a wrapped white elephant gift. (We missed the beautiful fish lamp again last year!) Because of our larger attendance, please bring only one gift per couple. We always have a great time at these parties, and it is especially good to meet and socialize with our significant others.

We ask that you bring a few flies and divide them between the two trees as we will raffle two trees again this year. We had a great turnout of flies last year as well as a huge pile of White Elephant gifts.
 
In order to better predict the amount of food to order, we ask that you order your tickets online. We will need to cut off online sales Wednesday the 11th. Online ticket sales are closed but we will accept registration at the door.

Trout Unlimited has been notified that a company called Platinum Publishing sent out renewal invoices for TROUT magazine for $79.95 to some of our members. Please be advised that this is a SCAM and did not originate from TU’s offices. Please do not respond to these invoices, but rest assured tu.org and our Woolly Bugger, WV, post office box are fully operational, secure and ready to process dues and gifts. Pass this message along to the volunteers in your chapter.

Rocky Mountain Flycasters’ Exclusives

Stop cross-water contamination!

Whirling disease. Dydimo. New Zealand Mud Snails. Chytrid fungus. These are very real threats to our waters. If you follow some very simple, inexpensive procedures, you can help curb the spread of these diseases. See Common Sense Disinfection Procedure by Phil Wright.

Inexpensive Wading staff

Are you as "sure footed" as you would like to be? Are you ready for the spring run-off? The raging spring torrents can quicky take your feet from under you. It could be that you might need a wading stick. Here’s how to build one out of inexpensive/used materials. Phil Wright put together this helpful HOW-TO (pdf 412 KB) so you can have your own hand-crafted wading stick.
