Cheeky Film Blitz

In an effort to showcase both the beauty and progression of modern fly fishing and to spark some local interest in the sport, Cheeky Fly Fishing is hosting the Cheeky Film Blitz at the West End Tavern in Boulder, CO.

Fishing the Big Thompson talk – standing room only!

On Wednesday night, BFC hosted Chad Pettrone as he gave a talk on when/how/where to fish the Big Thompson river.  Chad has been fishing and guiding on the Big Thompson for a number of years and did a great job sharing his knowledge.

It was full house!

Chad covered a lot of ground, first with a series of photos working up the canyon from Loveland all the way to Lake Estes.  He talked about what kind of water can be found at the various pull-outs and landmarks.

He finished up by talking about the insect life on the river.  The Big Thompson is a healthy river with a number of bugs to keep in mind…

At the end of the presentation Chad sold out of his waterproof Fly Selector for the Big Thompson.  If you wanted one of these riverside “cheat-sheets” to insect hatches and matching flies for the Big T, please email Chad directly, he is having more made.  [email protected] or visit the site

Thanks to Chad for an informative talk!

For future BFC chapter meetings, keep an eye on our event calendar.
