April Membership Meeting

April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Social Time 6:30 pm with Soft Drinks and Snacks

Meeting Time: 7:00pm

Speaker: Duane Redford, Minturn Anglers

Duane Redford, a professional fly fishing guide, spends the majority of his days guiding on the South Platte River near Deckers, Colorado and on the Eagle River near Minturn, Colorado. He began his fly fishing career fishing the Rocky Mountain West, and has been toting a fly rod for better than four decades.

As a retired teacher and coach, Duane has a unique, systematic approach to the river that he has used as the basis of his guiding for the last twelve years. This systematic approach, derived from guiding countless days on highly pressured, technical waters, has been refined over time, and is easily understood.

Duane is a sought after national speaker, Master Nymph Fly Rods Ambassador, consultant for Hookhead apparel, signature tier for Montana Fly Company, and the author of The Fly Fishers’ Playbook, a Systematic Approach to Nymphing and Hidden in Plain View, Recognizing the Obvious and Exploiting the Obscure in Fly Fishing.

When he’s not guiding, Duane spends his time teaching fly fishing classes, blogging, tying, speaking, and writing. When he’s not teaching, writing or guiding, you’ll find him on the river.

His latest presentation: The Perfect Drift, Easy As X,Y,Z delves into the three dimensions involved within the perfect drift. Whether you’re pitching dry flies, nymphing, tight-lining or dry-dropping, this presentation has something for you. It also covers, lively bugs in a dead drift, the fly fishing formula, rod alignment, specialty casts and mends, and the X, Y and Z dimension approach, plus much more! Duane will have his books, The Fly Fisher’s Playbook 2nd Edition and Hidden in Plain View, with him at the presentation. Show cost is $20 for Hidden in Plain View and $15 for The Playbook.
