MONTROSE, Colo. – Few activities compare with standing in a mountain stream and casting a fly to rising trout. So, if you've always wanted to learn how to fly fish, plan to attend a seminar July 21 sponsored by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Fishing gear and lunch will be provided at the day-long seminar in Montrose. The day will start with classroom instruction at the Montrose Parks and Wildlife office. Then participants will move to Chipeta Lake State Wildlife Area for some hands-on fun with rod and reel.
All ages are welcome, but participants must have a 2012 Colorado fishing license. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes bring a hat, sunscreen and your own water bottle.
The workshop is limited to 25 people. To register or for more information, call 970-252-6000, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a $10 registration fee. WHAT: Workshop on the basics of fly fishing. WHEN: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, July 21. WHERE: Montrose Parks and Wildlife office, 2300 S. Townsend Ave., and Chipeta Lake State Wildlife Area, just south of Montrose.
