Fly Fishing Presentation Our featured presenter this month is Tom Ziegler. Tom, beginning at age 10, cut his fly fishing teeth on the crystal-clear spring fed streams of the Missouri Ozarks fishing for both wild trout and, in the warmer streams, the wild and native smallmouth bass. Several years ago, the appeal of the Rockies proved too great and he and his family moved to the Colorado Front Range where he fishes for, and takes images of, the large diversity of species available, from Cutthroat to Carp. His photos have been featured in The Fly Fish Journal, Southwest Fly Fishing and MidCurrent. In addition to fly fishing photography, Tom has demonstrated fly tying at several national and regional shows as well as local fly shops along the Front Range, managed a fly shop, and is a FFF Certified Casting Instructor. Check out his website at or look for him on Facebook.

For his presentation to our group, he will be discussing some warm water fly fishing along with backpacking for high country trout, two of his favorite activities. Learn more and register.
