HELP WANTED - Gardener


As a fly shop, there are many challenges to provide the best service possible and manage all the different aspects of running a business. One of the areas that we have repeatedly failed at is maintaining the landscaping around the shop. The weeds have gotten the best of us but we are not at the point where we can afford an expensive commercial landscaping service. So we are looking for solutions.


If you would like a part-time job taking care of our grounds, please contact Tim with a proposal. We are open to any kind of arrangement, we just need to declare victory over the weeds...


Email Tim at or call the shop at 471-2984.

Ladies' Habitat Day

Women Only Fly Fishing Event - hosted by PPWA

Sunday, August 28th


Ever wonder why those trees and logs are in the river?
Why fish hang out in some spots but not others?
What makes good water for big, happy fish?
Peter Gallagher of Fin-Up Habitat Consultants has worked with streams all over the Mountain West.  He’s responsible for the Trees for Trout work in Elevenmile Canyon and will explain the hows and whys of what he does.  We will begin with what doesn’t work by looking at the state of Happy Meadows and Sportsmen’s Paradise, including improvements in progress, then return to Camp Alexander to learn from mature habitat.  We’ll touch on stream morphology, cover, holding water, and appropriate materials and additions, plus whatever questions you can come up with....

But for me, just escaping into the wilderness brings on a sense of adventure that allows me to truly relax. Plus the hike involved and the exercise I get is an added bonus.
Colorado has over 9,000 miles of streams capable of holding fish. Stop and read that again; 9,000 miles. That is three cross-country trips from San Francisco to New York, that is a lot of water. Most of this water is...
