DAS: Fly Fishing Around the Globe - Insight and Experiences of an International Angler

  • Denver Athletic Club (map)

Join Colorado Trout Unlimited's Denver Angling Society for a special lunch and presentation with author Jim White. Marooned on a river island above the Arctic Circle, caught by a flash flood in New Zealand, boated with a NFL cheerleader in the Caribbean, robbed in a British Columbia motel, and bunked with an almost-terrorist in Manitoba, Jim will share some of his diverse experiences when going “further out” to fish.

Jim will present on a variety of fly fishing adventures from around the globe and give us a first look at his new book, "Fly-Fishing the Arctic Circle to Tasmania.". We'll learn about fishing the Indian Ocean to the River Vltava in Bohemia. Beneath the Northern Lights and before the Southern Cross, Jim will share his insights and experiences on fly fishing internationally.
