I have lots to report as 2018 gets off to a strong start, beginning with our Beginner Fly Tying Class. Over 20 HCFF members participated as both students and teachers in the tying class, which was a big success, getting rave reviews from all. Thanks to those of you who participated.

The Advanced Fly Tying Class, aka "Flies and Lies," begins Wednesday, February 28 at 6 p.m. Please sign up on our Calendar page if you would like to participate. This event is free to members.

The Wasatch Intermountain Fly Tying and Fly Fishing Expo is rapidly approaching. It is our biggest fund raiser, so please sign up on Calendar page if you can help. We need you.

Our Men’s and Women’s beginning fly fishing clinics will be held in April and May, respectively. Class sizes are limited, so please sign up soon. Preference will be given to first time participants, but if you would like a refresher, please say so when you sign up, and we will notify you as the date approaches if we can accommodate you.

As for fishing, our Stillwater Group has had the unusual opportunity to fish our local lakes throughout the winter, due to this year’s warmer temperatures. It is likely that as our days get longer and temperatures warm, we will have an early ice-off, so start planning your trips now. If you are interested in joining our Stillwater Group, email Eric Luna (eluna@bonairfinancial.com) and ask him to add you to the list, so that we can keep you up to date with fishing opportunities and fishing reports.

Our Conservation Chair, Bruce Pope, is searching for worthwhile projects for HCFF to support, either financially or with manpower, so please email Bruce at lososos@aol.com with suggestions.

Lastly, our club trips will begin with Crittenden, April 12 -14, so plan accordingly. Crittenden is private lake in northern Nevada, known for giant trout. We will send out an email with details soon.

Thanks again to all our volunteers who make HCFF the best Trout Unlimited chapter in the West.

Tight Lines,
Dave Allison
