April 14: "Death by Fly Fishing and How to Avoid It"
with Wanda and Gary Taylor
Fly fishing is 100 times more dangerous than golf, as dangerous as mountain climbing and almost as dangerous as hunting. What we sometimes forget is that in pursuit of angling’s exhilarating moments, we just might inflict ourselves with serious bodily harm . . . and, in some cases, death. Wanda and Gary will share with us both how to avoid unexpected situations and how to prepare for some of the inevitable dangers we face when fly fishing.

April 25-28Kelsey Bass Ranch
A serious chance to catch the bass of a lifetime.
Join us for a weekend at Kelsey Lake where fly rod caught bass in the 3 to 5 pound class are common. The current record is 16 pounds 12 ounces caught in January of 2014. (See accompanying photo.) Since we have permission to camp lakeside, you can indulge in catch and release fishing from as early as you want to as late as you want. If we have twelve anglers in our group, we will pretty much have exclusive access to the 125 acre lake for the weekend. More information and Registration.

 May 19: "Fly Fishing the Spectacular San Juan"
With Soaring Eagle's Larry Johnson.

  In the northwest corner of New Mexico, the San Juan River flows out of Navajo Dam for about 20 miles with a trout population numbering an incredible nine to twelve thousand fish per mile. Our May presenter, Larry Johnson, fell in love with the San Juan when he first fished it in the mid-80s and that love has steadily increased during the last 14 years that he’s lived and guided on this pristine tailwater. Make your RESERVATION to learn more about this world famous fishery.
