Angling for a cause

Dear Editor:

The Roaring Fork Valley recently hosted the ninth annual “Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Classic” to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This great event, which this year raised over $70,000 to “Catch a Cure,” owes its success to many local businesses as well as individuals.

A special thank you goes out to European Caterers, Louis Swiss Bakery, Saxy’s Cafe, The Roaring Fork Club, Mountain Chalet, Orrison Distributing, Alpine Angling, Taylor Creek Fly Shop, and the great folks at the Riverside Grill. Also many thanks to the incredible fishing guides who donated their time and effort to this event – Aaron Colcott, Jason Phillips, Kyle Holt, Gifford Maytham, Jeremy Stott, Chris Kish, Mike Thomas, Ry Neiley, Taylor Logsdon, Lincoln Neiley, Tim Robinson, Tripp Dobson, Josh Lively, Jason Peltac, Tony Fotopulos, Pete Mott, Will Sands, and Dustin Harcourt.

Thanks guys, you help make a difference!

Tim Heng
