April Chapter Meeting: Duane Redford & CU Fly Fishing
April 3, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On Wednesday April 3rd we will have one last Chapter Meeting before breaking for the Summer.
First up, Duane Redford.
Duane Redford, a professional fly fishing guide, spends the majority of his days guiding on the South Platte River near Deckers, Colorado and on the Eagle River near Minturn, Colorado. He began his fly fishing career fishing the Rocky Mountain West, and has been toting a fly rod for better than four decades.
As a retired teacher and coach, Duane has a unique, systematic approach to the river that he has used as the basis of his guiding for the last twelve years. This systematic approach, derived from guiding countless days on highly pressured, technical waters, has been refined over time, and is easily understood.
Duane is a sought after national speaker, pro-staff lead for 8 Rivers Fly Rods, consultant for Hookhead apparel, signature tier for Montana Fly Company, and the author of The Fly Fishers’ Playbook, a Systematic Approach to Nymphing and Hidden in Plain View, Recognizing the Obvious and Exploiting the Obscure in Fly Fishing.
When he’s not guiding, Duane spends his time teaching fly fishing classes, blogging, tying, speaking, and writing. When he’s not teaching, writing or guiding, you’ll find him on the river.
Finally, Taiyo and Anthony of the CU Fishing Club will present a recap of their 2018 summer “vacations”. Taiyo spent his time fighting wild fires across the west while Anthony went north to Alaska with Trout Unlimited. They both have very unique and interesting stories to share that you won’t want to miss.
