February Membership Meeting

February 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Social Time 6:30 pm with Soft Drinks and Snacks

Meeting Time: 7:00pm

Our Special Guest will be Alan Peak, guide and advocate for the Fountain Creek.

Alan Peak was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he grew up fishing the northern lakes of Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as Lake Michigan and its tributaries. Alan then attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2001, moving to Colorado in 2007. In 2008 Alan joined the 4th Infantry Division based in Fort Carson, deploying twice in support of OIF. Honorably discharged in spring of 2013, Alan transitioned into working as an independent fly fishing guide on the South Platte River. After 6 full time seasons of guiding, Alan built a Tiny House on Wheels that was featured on HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living, dubbed the “Tiny Fisherman’s House.” Alan built this house to further pursue his passion of fishing. During construction of the tiny house, Alan fished closer to home bringing attention to Fountain Creek in the Colorado Sun article, “Colorado Springs’ downtown creek has long been viewed as a blight. Then one man started catching trout in it.” In the summer of 2019, Alan fished the creeks of Pikes Peak alongside his friends, making it his most memorable summer to date. Alan Peak will come back to guiding in the spring of 2020 as an independent guide, as well as continuing the search for his next favorite spot.
