Upcoming Events

June 16, 2016

Paul will be giving a presentation to the Section on fishing the tenkara method. His presentation will include presentation, flies and use on various types of water.

In 2012, Paul became one of only a handful of certified professional tenkara guides in the state of Colorado, and is employed as a guide at Royal Gorge Anglers in Canon City. He also recently joined the team at Zen Fly Fishing Gear as Vice President, Public Relations/Product Design. His writing and photographs have appeared online on his personal blog, Tenkara Tracks, with guest articles for Tenkara USA, on Colorado Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, in Backcountry Journal, and most recently in the book Tenkara Fly Fishing: Insights and Strategies, published in April 2013, to which Paul was a contributing writer/angler.

The meeting will begin at 7 PM. Please join us for happy hour starting at 5:30 PM. Food and drink will be available for purchase. This monthly gathering of the Fly Fishing Section is open to Members and non-members, so bring your bring your friends and fishing buddies. Learn more.

Our Web Site

Schools and Clinics

Classes and clinics are regularly conducted for members. Introductory fly fishing and tying schools are held annually. For details, view the schools page, send us an e-mail or call the office at 303-279-3080.

Backcountry Fly Fishing

While most prefer established streams, some eagerly pursue the backcountry. We hike, climb and backpack to uncrowded, special places. For more on Colorado wilderness fly fishing, visit our backcountry pages.
