At this year’s Rally held at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, Va., 200 students from 20 schools participated in a variety of activities, including a premiere of the F3T spinoff, “Flies, Films and Foam,” a raffle (items donated by our program sponsors, Simms Fishing Products, Montana Fly Company and Mossy Creek Fly Shop), Pig Farm Ink’s “Iron Fly” tying competition and “Get Trashed” stream cleanup. During the “Get Trashed” event, students removed two tons of trash from the waterways of Syria, Va.!

The Poudre (through downtown Fort Collins) is an urban trout fishery, and although it is a beautiful freestone river, its close proximity to downtown means that some garbage inevitably ends up in it.
It's 330 a.m. Saturday morning I've just gotten off of work, and too many people bought me shots. I am drunk. Luckily, a lot of my friends work nine to fives and can only fish on the weekends, which we all know is the best time to go! 530 a.m. rolls around...
I was all alone, just me and the river
I saw a fish rise, and it gave me a shiver
Being as green as I was, I setup to fast
Blowing it all, with a nice pile cast...
