October Chapter Meeting

October 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Speaker:  Shelley Walchack

Topic:  Stories from her book.
Guest Tier: Regina Musyl
Also at this meeting: SaraBella Fishing will be showing their fly rods and accessories. SaraBella specializes in fly rods and equipment for women.

Shelley will share stories from her book about her solo journey through the seven Rocky Mountain states fly-fishing a river a week through snow, wind, rain and blistering heat. Her book, “52 Rivers: A Woman’s Fly-fishing Journey” chronicles her successes, failures and love of the sport and the outdoors.

Just about everyone has dreamt of taking a year off to fulfill a dream. Librarian Shelley Walchak lived her dream by giving up her job at the Colorado State Library to fly fish a river a week for a year. She bought and outfitted a camper, purchased camera equipment and a computer and hit the road. She decided to stay in the Rocky Mountain States – Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Her photographs and blog posts of her journey became the book 52 Rivers

Regina Musyl, our tier this month, is the Co-Director of the WDTU Fly Tying clinic. In her professional life, she is the Professional Services Director at Mortgage Cadence.
