The health and well being of our veterans, donors and volunteers involved with Platte Rivers Veterans Fly Fishing (PRVFF) is of unparalleled importance. With elevated levels of concern surrounding Coronavirus/ COVID-19, PRVFF Leadership would like to inform you of the decision that has been made in conjunction with our Board of Directors. This also aligns the organization within the recommendations of State and Local municipalities.
At the March 12th PRVFF Board of Directors meeting it was announced that PRVFF will postpone our upcoming banquet fundraising event, scheduled for March 28th, 2020. PRVFF is committed to having this event, as it is a key funding resource for the execution of our mission.
After consulting with our host venue, Little America, the event has been rescheduled for August 29th, 2020.
If you have already purchased tickets, for the March 28th date, those will be honored for the banquet in August. If you are unable to make the new date, PRVFF is willing to issue a refund, however, we ask you to please consider viewing those tickets purchased as a donation to Platte Rivers Veterans Fly Fishing.
Tickets purchased for our pre-event raffle drawings will still be held on March 28th, 2020. Normally, these raffles would have been drawn during our banquet, but with the circumstances changing, PRVFF has had to alter this plan. Instead, PRVFF will be having the raffle drawings at JAX Outdoor Gear, 1400 Dell Range Blvd. Cheyenne, WY. This will be open to the public for anyone who wishes to view it live, however PRVFF will also video record it and post this video to our Facebook account and website. Tickets for both raffles are still available for sale if you haven’t purchased yet. If you were planning on getting them at the banquet, please reach out to one of our area leads to get them. You DO NOT have to be present to win!
Please understand that making a decision like this so late in the game is never easy and is not made lightly. PRVFF values all our veterans, donors and volunteers and we know that without you, the organization would not be able to accomplish the great therapies and experiences in Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. We look forward to seeing you in August!

A Fly Rod of Your Own, the newest installation of fly fishing books by John Gierach, takes the reader from fishing small Rocky Mountain streams in Northern Colorado to discovering untouched salmon runs by float plane in the wild interior of Alaska.

A Fly Rod of Your Own delivers tales of fishing in far off locations that only a few select anglers get to see in their lifetime. Continue reading “Book Review: A Fly Rod of Your Own”
