Angling for a cause

Dear Editor:This past weekend, the Roaring Fork Valley hosted the second annual Cystic Fibrosis Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Classic to raise money for research for this debilitating disease.Anglers from across the country, as well as from this valley, participated in this event, which raised more than $30,000. I would like to give a special thanks to the guides who participated and who, without them, all of this would not be possible: Mike Chmura, Jay Cronk, John Dobson, Tripp Dobson, Kea Hause, Kyle Holt, Chris Kish, Craig Langlinais, Taylor Logsdon, Gifford Maytham, Doug Moyer, Adam Sahnow, Matthew Thomas, Mike Thomas and Chris Thomsen. Thanks guys, you are the best!Thanks also to Alpine Angling, Fryingpan Anglers and the Taylor Creek flyshops.Tim HengCarbondale
