Denny Rickards - "Stillwater Specialist"

Denny Rickards

For thirty years Denny Rickards has fished and guided anglers over some of the most challenging trophy trout waters in the Western United States. His simplistic approach and techniques on presentation have accounted for browns over 20 pounds, cutthroats to 15 pounds and rainbows in excess of 16 pounds.

Denny spends over 250 days a year doing what he loves best: guiding, writing, tying flies, conducting fly fishing schools, and field testing tackle manufacturer’s products.

Denny’s area of expertise is stillwater fly fishing and he focuses primarily on the presentation aspects of fly fishing lakes. That includes where to fish, proper lines for each depth, pattern choices, retrieves, balancing tackle requirements, adjusting for existing conditions, casting for distance, understanding the impact of weather changes and much more.

December Potluck Dinner

Remember our annual potluck dinner at this month's meeting, with dinner starting at 7 p.m. The club will provide ham, turkey, potatoes, gravy, and beverages. Bring a side dish to share plus your table setting. If you pay your 2015 dues at the meeting, you will get an additional raffle ticket.

So bring your spouse, significant other, or friend to have a great time and let them meet the people you have been, or should have been, fishing with for the past year or so.
