FRONT RANGE ANGLERS NEWSLETTER

"Dedicated to bringing people and fish together"
September 2005
 

Hello all,

If I collected a dollar from everyone who was going to Alaska this past month I would have had my rent paid. Are any of you not going to Alaska? Huge Rainbows (like the one in the picture at left) that I have found difficult to dredge up in Boulder Creek, are certainly a good enough reason to go.

Another point was scored for the state of Colorado this week in that the world fly fishing championship to qualify for the world cup team will now be held in Colorado every year for the foreseeable future. This is a great draw for the state and for the local TU chapters who will be involved in the promotion of the event.

Hope to see you,

Bill
