In Store Presentation: A Fly-Fishers Guide To Colorado’s Lost Lakes & Secret Places

Ivan Orsic / May 16, 2016

While the population of Colorado may continue to be growing- and to that extent the rivers feeling more crowded- the great thing about this state is that there is still no shortage of fishing options that won't involve a dozen other cars in the parking lot. The high alpine scene is alive and well and will take you to some of the most beautiful places you could ever hope to catch a trout. Oh and in more good news, there's more of it in Colorado than one could explore in a lifetime.

We invite you to join us as we welcom into the shop Mike Kephart, author of the recently published book, "A Fly Fisher's Guide to Colorardo's Lost Lakes & Secret Places". This presentation will cover some of the topics discussed in the book as well as plenty of time for Q & A wtih Mike.

Date: Tuesday May 24th.

Time: 6:00-7:00pm

Location: Trouts Fly Fishing (1303 E. 6th Ave. corner of 6th/Marion)

Cost: Free

Beer: Free

A little bit about the Mike:

I was raised in Perryville, a small town on the edge of the Ozark Mountains in Southern Missouri. Living there taught me to respect the land and the animals that share the earth with us. I fished the streams, lakes, and ponds for bass and bluegill and I continue to enjoy solo hiking and fly fishing expeditions into the mountain wildernesses of Colorado and nearby states. I received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Kansas in 1967, and after a long career in architecture, I retired in 2008. In 2009 I co-authored Building for Boomers published by McGraw Hill in February of 2010. This book summarizes the various housing forms baby boomers prefer, and explores more land efficient ways of building cities in order to reduce sprawl and conserve our wildernesses. We are currently loving our forests to death.

Compact Cities, as a tool for sustainability, has long led me to efforts to bring people more closely together while maintaining their own personal identity, privacy and sense of security. The more that people learn to live comfortably in high density cities, the more wild land that will be left for all of us to enjoy. Sidekick Homes: I founded this Company in 2009 to design and build ADUs, another of the tools for sustainability; ADUs are small homes on fully serviced unused land (a backyard) in a city. These are complete homes, just much smaller than the homes being built now.
