Rocky Mountain Frenzy II ~ Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style
Cache La Poudre
The Rocky Mountain Frenzy II date has been set! So come one, come all!!! It will beJuly 20-23, I figured that I would stick in a Friday and Monday for those who can join me as I will be fishing those days also besides the weekend. So, put it on your calendars and let's fish!! It was a great time of comradery last year as fly fishing bloggers got to meet up and fish some awesome water. All of you in the state of Colorado and outside...are invited to join us as we head to the RMNP for some great summer fishing! We will also pick a couple of other rivers close to the Denver area as we exchange ideas through group email. Be sure to email me (the link is in the right hand corner above) if you want to be added to the list of attendees.
Last year we fly fished the Big Thompson, Poudre, Boulder Creek, and several other RMNP creeks. I'm sure that there will be some new ones added to the mix this year! It should be a great time.
We will meet for breakfast one morning before heading out. And like last year, we will have a group dinner to start everything out on Thursday or Friday night. Only 3 months away my friends! Whoohoo...
And there is always a good time at a local fly shop that has an extra special place in my heart! Rocky Mountain Anglers ~ Thanks again to Jay Zimmerman, the best fly removal from fingers in the West! Lol. It will not be repeated this year, btw.
And of course, we will snap a few group photos as well. And we plan on Howard being there instead of the hospital this year! Yes, for sure!!
Every once in awhile, I get the urge to do a video on the river. So, I had an incredible fish come out of the group I caught Saturday and wanted to share my excitement! But, with one hand holding the fish and the other holding the phone cam...well, let's just say that it is far from Ivan's, Yukon Goes Fishing great videos!!
Howard at Windknots and Tangled Lines was supposed to "critique" it for me as a last minute hope that it wasn't too stupid and I could post it. Well, the next thing that I knew, his "critiquing" meant his "posting" it as "Romancing The Bow" on FB!! Ahhhhh... How I set myself up for that one. I might as well put it out there for all of you to have a good laugh. What the heck. I think that we will just chalk up this poor effort to "RD's Silliest Fish Vids" and call it good. Now, just remember that I do know how to speak English. Somehow, I got in a goofy mood and I sound like I am from Sweden or something! Lol. Enjoy laughing at my expense. It's only 30 seconds...so no real damage will be done. = )
Sunday Tippet: Stick to still photo shoots if you are winging it alone on your fishing trip. It's much easier than trying to balance a fish, your vid cam, and talking all at the same time!!
(Well, maybe some of you can do that without a problem...I don't know) And don't ask anyone to "critique" your work if you aren't too fond of it. Lol.
