Our first VIRTUAL on-line meeting!
On Tuesday, January 25th, at 6:50 p.m. you will be able to log-in to a ZOOM virtual meeting with PPCTU. We’ll provide a link in the upcoming days. Our speaker is Spencer Seim – he is the owner of ZiaFly n Taos New Mexico. We thought our members would be interested in learning about where to go fly fishing in northern New Mexico – stepping out on their maybe annual trip to the San Juan below Navajo Reservoir next time, right?
Incredibly, Spencer and his wife and 2 little children recently and quite dramatically survived COVID in their own home under the generous care and watch of neighbors, as the hospital in Taos was too full to take anymore patients. They suffered unimaginable stress being hardly able to walk and having to care for their children as well as themselves. They did not have any answers to the kind of questions that might go through your own mind under these circumstances. The Taos community of people they didn’t even know came to their home to communicate through windows and to leave food, dinners, food, snacks – anything that might help. The support of strangers in the Taos community was the human element of caring that helped the Seims make it through this 2 week event of illness. When they recovered enough to function, Spencer used life savings to buy a motor home and they headed for the beach, the ocean front in Texas. Spencer will be providing his talk from the sanctuary of an RV park on the gulf coast using the park’s WiFi.
He will talk to us about exploring the creeks and rivers he knows in the mountains of New Mexico and Southern Colorado, places he has spent his youth and adult career fly fishing.
