October Meeting—Top Guides to Tie Favorite Flies

The Alpine Anglers October meeting will feature two of the area’s top fly fishing guides demonstrating how to tie the flies they rely on when fishing local streams.


Frank Drummond was a lead guide for Estes Angler and Laughing Grizzly Fly Shop in Longmont. He has a penchant for the small streams of Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoys showing visitors how to catch the fish. As a guide, he likes flies that are effective—but quick and easy to tie. As Brush Creek Cane, Frank also crafts beautiful cane fly rods that are highly sought after in the region.


Matt Schaffer has been guiding in the area for five years and has taught many fly tying classes. Matt likes to show the fish something a little different, so he brings imagination and innovation to his tying. Matt also guides hiking and snowshoeing trips throughout the winter through Kirk's.


The meeting is Wednesday, October 17 at the American Legion Hall in Estes Park. A social hour starts at 6:30 P.M., and the program will begin at 7:00. The public is invited. Come learn from some local experts.
