Members,

It’s been a great winter for skiing – fishing, not so much. Temperatures of late are all over the place, 20 degrees one day, 40 the next. Oh well, that’s Utah.

For you newbies, I’ll share with you that, while we have lots of outdoor functions from spring to fall, we tend to focus on indoor activities during winter.

We just finished our beginner fly tying classes. 13 students, and 12 volunteer instructors, we covered streamers, nymphs, soft hackles, and dry flies. It was very successful this year.

Several of our fly tying club members will be running a High Country Fly Fishing booth at the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo at the Salt Palace, February 16th -19th from 10A til 7p and 10a til 4p on Sunday.

Our advanced fly tying classes, beginning March 4 , Fly Tying and Story Telling (aka, "Flies and Lies") promises to be equally successful, and will offer you the opportunity to get to know some of our longtime members, a few of which actually catch fish.

Another great event, the Wasatch Fly Tying Expo, is coming up, April 7-8. HCFF, as one of the event organizers, is working hard to ensure another successful event, and we could use your help, as putting on a show like this takes lots of volunteers. This is a big money maker for our club, so please be generous with your time.

Additional details on these events, as well as information on our upcoming spring and summer outings, can be found on our Calendar page Please come out and participate.

And, as always, thank you for your support.

Tight lines,
Mike
