Dave It’s been a busy summer, and we ain't done yet.

HCFF’s Starvation and Panguitch fishouts were well attended, and everyone had a great time. Starvation was slower than usual, but we managed to land a few big fish. Panguitch was a different story. As usual, it was off the charts. Most of us caught more than 20 a day, including several over 20”.

Sadly, we had to cancel our Strawberry trip due to the Dollar Ridge Fire.

We have our Steak Fry coming Up August 3rd at Rotary Park in Park City. As Usual Bruce Pope is doing a great job organizing this event again. If you are interested in attending, please go to the website and sign-up.

On Saturday August 11th, the 9th annual Heber Valley Fly fishing Expo will be held in Hamlet Park in Midway. HCFF will have a booth, where myself and John Schultz will be tying our fingers to the bone and promoting the club. We also purchased a booth for Project Healing Waters. There will be exhibitors, clinics, plenty to do for kids, live music and good food. its free and open to the public. We hope to see you there.

Our next trip is to the Green River, and it follows on the heels of the Green River Single Fly event, which will benefit conservation efforts of the High Desert Anglers Chapter Trout Unlimited.

Our members are invited to attend the Single Fly banquet August 24 free of charge, and the club has reserved and paid for the group camp site at the Greendale Campgrounds. Many great guides are available through Park City’s fly shops, including Jan’s and Trout Bum 2.

Kudos to Nancy Greider and Pat Ronneberg for putting on a terrific Women’s Fishing Clinic and completing two successful Women’s Fishing Days. Thank you to Jan’s for providing our great instructors and guides for the clinic.

In addition to the Women’s clinic, HCFF members assisted with fishing outings for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and Wounded Warriors. Thank you, Mike Leigh and Rick Jensen, for heading up those efforts.

Lastly, don’t forget to register for our September trip to Island Park. September will be here before you know it.

I hope to see you all out on the water.

Tight lines,
Dave Allison
