May Newsletter 2010
Hello All:
 You can see that our monthly newsletter has a new look  We've decided to change the content a little bit and focus asylvendale_home bit more energy on our blog site which you can reach by clicking here:  FRA Blog.  Currently the Blog is updated several times a week but we intend to expand its coverage and scope.  As of this date we are seeing around 6000 hits a month.
Right now in Colorado, King Winter is keeping Queen Run-off at bay. Normally we are up to our ears in chocolate milk writing articles and blogs about throwing streamers to the banks of our murky streams. Trout fishing has been holding on well  and the warm water fishing has come alive.
We still have some openings for our annual trip to Sylvandale Ranch this Sunday the 16th. This is a great opportunity to throw dries and streamers to 10lb. plus fish. The combination of lakes and ponds and a stretch of the Big Thomson make this a all around fishing experience. Click here for more info.
Thanks for you business and hope to see you,
