June Chapter Meeting

by: Cy Ball

June Chapter Meeting: June 6, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, American Mountaineering Center, Golden.

Speaker:  Steve Schweitzer
Topic:  Topwater! – Designing and Fishing Effective Topwater Bugs.
Guest Tier: Walt Mueller.

Steve Schweitzer has been part of the fly fishing retail and conservation industry for over 25 years, including a key position as the V.P. of Sales & Marketing at Whiting Farms, where he created the popular products “Bird Fur”, “Fly Tyer’s Variety Pack” and the “Whiting Hackle Gauge”.

Steve Schweitzer was born and raised in Ohio and spent his younger years fishing his parents’ farm pond for bass and bluegill with poppers. At age 7, his grandfather taught him the craft of lure-making and he was hooked ever since.

Now, an avid fly fisherman and noted fly designer, Steve enjoys backpacking, hiking and writing about fly fishing and fly tying. Steve is author of the award-winning “A Fly Fishing Guide To Rocky Mountain National Park”, and co-authored, “A Fly Fishing Guide to Colorado’s Indian Peaks Wilderness Area” with Mike Kruise. His latest book is: “Designing Poppers, Sliders, and Divers.”

Walt Mueller is the developer of the “milking egg” patterns.

Special Addition to the meeting:  Mark Story will offer this:

Ever thought about buying a book on fishing or fly patterns but wished you could flip through it first?  Ever bought a book only to get it and find out it really wasn’t what you were looking for?  We’re going to try to address both of these situations at the June chapter meeting.  You’re invited to bring 2 or 3 of your favorite fishing or fly pattern books to the meeting.  We’ll set up a table and allow everyone to browse the selections.  Also, I’ll put together a bibliography that can be downloaded or emailed out.

We’re not going to buy, sell, or loan these books – just peruse.  You’ll take your books home with you that night.  So, if you’re interested in bringing some books for people to look at, please affix you name to the front cover of each book.

Thank you and see you at the June chapter meeting.
