The care of rivers is not a question of rivers, but of the human heart. – Tanako Shozo -
Part of the responsibilities of a fly shop is to promote the great adventure of fly fishing while working toward the conservation of local fisheries. To that end, Angler's Covey has, from the outset, embraced the conservation efforts to protect our local rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs. The clean up of the Dream Stream in October and this Sunday's clean up of the South Platte at Deckers are two grassroot efforts to conserve those popular fisheries.
We at Angler's Covey would like to invite everybody to come help us out on Sunday May 22nd. The accumulation of line, water bottles, beer and soda cans, plastic ... along the banks of the river is overwhelming. Depending on the number of volunteers, we will section off the Deckers area with each group taking a section. We will meet behind the Deckers store in the public lot at 8 am. Hot dogs will be provided for lunch, then afterwards you are invited to end the day by wetting a line. This is great way to meet new people while doing good for the river and its surroundings.
All are invited and you are encouraged to invite your friends as well. Signing up (click here for the link to the calendar) will be necessary as to insure an accurate count for food.
