Help Protect Our Rivers

May 7, 2013
Author: Will Rice

If you fly fish in Colorado pay attention to this: with strong bipartisan support, the Colorado General Assembly has passed Senate Bill 224 to create the Protect Our Rivers license plate. The plate will be available to all CO residents through a tax-deductible contribution of $25 to Colorado Trout Unlimited and 100% of the funds will be used locally to protect, conserve and restore Colorado rivers. Here’s what you can do if you support this effort and Colorado TU: sign the CTU Petition which will be presented to the powers that be to demonstrate that this effort has support in the field.

Chris Santella has authored another fly fishing book titled "Why I fish."  If you are not familiar with Santella’s work, he authored two editions of "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die" and he also is a regular contributor at the New York Times.  In addition to this, when he goes steelheading he apparently wears a Trouts Signature Trucker Hat for good luck. We don’t have his new book in the shop yet but this excerpt and guest blog post makes us want to hunt a copy down.

condolences

Trouts Fly Fishing would like to offer our condolences to the families and friends of the five outdoor enthusiasts and industry professionals who were killed this weekend in the avalanche on Loveland Pass. 

From the Denver Post:

The five men killed Saturday in Colorado's deadliest avalanche in 50 years were participants in a backcountry snowboarder event called the Rocky Mountain High Backcountry Bash.  They were representatives and founders of snow-sport companies, guides, avalanche experts and veteran backcountry travelers, gathering in the normally safer spring season to celebrate backcountry snowboarding, raise money for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center and test the newest gear.”

You Remember Tim Romano?

Tim Romano just got back from a fly fishing tarpon mission in the Florida Keys and Miami – to call his fishing report and slide show epic… is an understatement.

“My trip to Key West last week was a nutty one: two rods broken, three falls by one guy off the bow, a destroyed rental car, night fishing for tarpon, and a few new species in the bag.”
