Lisa Schmidt, wife of FRA staff member and guide Brian Schmidt.

One of the few perks of being married to Brian is that you qualify for reduced guide fees, and get the chance to land lunkers like this.

Hello all,

Congratulations to Jim Wright who won last week's quiz. The correct answer was the Dream Stream (the S. Platte River between Spinney and Elevenmile Reservoirs). Jim wins a C&F Designs fly box.

This week's question: Which fish does The Compleat Angler, written by Isaak Walton in 1653, describe as "the queen of rivers; a stately, a good, and a very subtle fish"? Email your guess here. The lucky winner will receive a Redington Topwater fishing shirt.

We have one spot left on the Bonefish Safari - May 6th: click here for details. We also had a last minute cancellation for the Intro to Insects class this Saturday 4/15. Boulder Creek is perfect for the class right now -- it's going to be excellent. Click here for details and to register if you'd like the spot.

Hope to see you,
Bill
