Welcome

Welcome to the High Country Fly Fishers website. We are a conservation-oriented fly fishing club located in beautiful Park City, Utah. Except for July, August and September when we shut down to go fishing, we meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Our meeting location varies, so be sure to check the website beforehand and also to sign up for our email newsletter on the Membership page. Old friends and new members are always welcome, so drop by for good conversation, interesting programs and fish stories.

Next Meeting:

February 4, 2015 at 7 p.m.

Location:

Redrock Junction
1640 Redstone Center Drive, Park City, Utah

Program:

This month's program will feature Harley Reno from Rigby, Idaho. Harley has a varied background and often "talks" to the fish he raises in his private pond. He will conduct a tying demo from 6 to 7 p.m. in advance of the regular meeting. Harley is a retired professor, environmental engineer, and fishing guide of 50 years. He has a Ph.D. in Zoology (specialty was anatomy and evolutionary processes in fishes). The title of his presentation is "A river that challenges the best.. and usually wins."

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a joyful holiday season. We finally received some of the snow that we so desperately need here in the 2nd driest state in the country. I truly hope that we have a big winter for both the skiing and for the water (and the fish!).

It has been a great year for HCFF and we are looking forward to 2015. As a club, I think we accomplished quite a bit this past year: the clinics, over 1200 willows planted, the Weber walk overs, river cleanup, Project Healing Waters, Casting for Recovery, fly tying classes, and the Expo. I am continually overwhelmed by the response of volunteers from our organization for community service, conservation, and as advocates for the sport of fly fishing. We also had some fun along the way: LC Ranch, the Green River, Pelican Lake, Strawberry picnic, the Madison river, and who can forget all Ryan Turner's gifts at the Christmas party. We will be doing many of the same things this year and I thank you in advance for making our activities possible by giving your time and effort. Take a look at the calendar and see where you might want to participate. If you have any suggestions for projects or fishing excursions, please contact me at any time.

Tight Lines,
Mike
