8th Annual Rocky Mountain Flyfishing Classic - for Cystic Fibrosis

Photographed the 8th Annual Rocky Mountain Flyfishing Classic for Cystic Fibrosis in Aspen over this past weekend - what a beautiful colorful event and a wonderful location! Participants fished with a guide on the Colorado River one day and the Roaring Fork River the other day - Friday and Saturday.

We are still editing some of the hundreds of photos taken this weekend - but they will all be online soon in this album.

Initial estimates are that the event raised over $35,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. More information about the event online at the CF Foundation.

These three fisherman below were NOT in the tournament, but I ended up photographing them numerous times waiting for tournament participants - and often while catching a fish! In this case I think the fish just got away!

Late in the day, we went to the new Kayak Park in Glenwood Springs and had some fun watching kayakers play in the wave.... a whole different way to enjoy the river!
