Photo of HCFF President Eric LunaHigh Country Fly Fishers is coming off a banner year in large part due to the efforts of our outgoing president Dave Allison and Bill Quapp, our Vice President and Programs Chairman. Thank you, gentlemen.

Bill is again managing our programs and has lined up some outstanding speakers who will inform us about the state of our sport, regional conservation efforts, the status of local fisheries, and fishing destinations and techniques.

I would also like to welcome Katie Cannarella to our board. She will serve as Secretary/Treasurer. Katie brings a wealth of financial and administrative experience to the position and will be an asset to our club.

Our trip lineup includes, Crittenden, Starvation, Panguitch, Strawberry, and Island Park. We also intend to participate in the Green River Single Fly.

In addition to our fishing trips, we will have three social events, the Steak Fry, Member Social/Annual Meeting, and the Christmas Party.

Our outreach efforts will continue through Trout in the Classroom, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Casting for Recovery, Beginner and Advanced Fly Tying Clinics, Men’s and Women’s Fly Fishing Clinics, Women’s Fishing Days, and, new this year, Men’s Fishing Days. The Men’s and Women’s Fishing Days are designed for beginners and to build upon what students learn at the fishing clinics.

HCFF remains a cosponsor of the Wasatch Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Expo, which will be held this April in Sandy. The Expo provides a major source of funds for our club, so please sign up to volunteer.

Details for all these events can be found on our Calendar page, and you can sign up on our Activity Sign Up page. All our events are a great way for new members to meet everyone, so please take advantage of these opportunities, and get involved.

Lastly, if you don’t know our officers and board members, please seek us out at our monthly meetings and introduce yourself. We can help you with any questions you might have about our club and steer you in the right direction if you seek to get more involved.

Tight lines,
Eric Luna
