pat_rooserHello All: 

Front Range Anglers' trip to the Baja peninsula was a success! This unique beach fishing opportunity provided anglers with dozens of different species to target.  Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, African Pompano, Cabrilla, Pargo and Sierra Mackerel were all caught from the beach and other species were caught from Pongas (boats). Look for this great saltwater trip again in 2011.

Due to the many requests for fly fishing classes for kids, FRA has teamed up with Thorne Ecological institute to  offer a week-long camp at the end of this month for kids ages 9-11.  We all love to teach our children to fish, but sometimes it's time to hand them off to the pros!  

www.thorne-eco.org for information or register by phone (303-499-3647) . 

Thanks for your business,

Bill Leuchten
