Salida Steam Plant Ballroom
Collegiate Peaks Anglers–September Meeting
On Saturday, September 16th, the Chapter is holding our fourth annual “Friendraiser” and member meeting at the Salida Steam Plant Ballroom, 220 West Sackett Avenue, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.).
The three previous years we hosted “Movie Night.” This year will be an evening with Landon Mayer including a special presentation “Trout tips: Secrets and tactics for selective trout.” The evening will also include fly-tying demonstrations, book signing and special items give-away. Free popcorn, cookies, lemonade and ice tea will be offered again this year along with a CASH bar. Tickets will be available at the door with a $10 suggested donation.
Landon Mayer’s angling success is fueled by an addiction to pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment. Mayer enthusiastically teaches and demonstrates his techniques and on-river knowledge to fellow anglers and has developed innovative strategies for sighting, hooking and landing selective trout. Mayer is author of several books including “101 Trout Tips: A Guide’s Secrets, Tactics and Techniques,” “Colorado’s Best Fly Fishing,” “Sight Fishing for Trout” and “How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life,” as well as two DVDs.
Landon’s passion for fly-fishing has allowed him to make several noteworthy contributions to the sport through travels throughout the country visiting fly-fishing related organizations and through teaching on guided trips, fly-fishing classes and demonstrations. As an ambassador in the fly-fishing industry, Mayer represents several lines, among them Simms, Winston and Scientific Angler and is a royalty fly designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants.
Don’t miss this very special event and bring a friend.
