February Chapter Meeting

by: Cy Ball

February 5 at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden.

Speaker: Zeke Hersh
Topic: Fishing the Colorado River
Guest Tier:

Zeke Hersh will be talking and explaining, the Colorado River and its, floatable sections, seasons, boat and fishing techniques and much more.

Growing up in Washington state, Zeke fell in love with fishing at an early age. Fly fishing engaged him after watching a Steelhead angler fly cast on early morning bike rides to school. For a summer, he was a daily visitor at the local fly shop, quickly absorbing as much information as he could. Zeke loves to break down the technical aspects of fly fishing and fish tendencies to find the best and most effective methods for success. An ever-patient instructor, lover of the outdoors, and teacher of the art, science, and wonder of fly fishing is what motivates Zeke to continue to further educate himself and others about the sport he loves.

Fishing Equipment Needed

Again for the 4th year WDTU will be collecting fishing equipment for native American youths. We can use any spinning or casting equipment including rods, reels, hooks, lures,, line, etc. WDTU donated this equipment to a group called One Nation Walking Together. They will distribute the equipment to native Americans youths. You can bring donations to any meeting and give it to Tim Toohey or email Tim at Tim2e@comcast.net and make arrangement to pick it up
