June Monthly Meeting

Steve Schweitzer was born and raised in Ohio and spent his younger years fishing his parents’ farm pond for bass and bluegill with poppers. At age 7, his grandfather taught him the craft of lure-making and he was hooked ever since. Now, an avid fly fisherman and noted fly tyer, Steve enjoys backpacking, hiking and writing about fly fishing and fly tying.   Steve is author of the award-winning “A Fly Fishing Guide To Rocky Mountain National Park”, and co-authored, “A Fly Fishing Guide to Colorado’s Indian Peaks Wilderness Area” with Mike Kruise.  He is a frequent contributor to leading fly fishing periodicals and contributing author and illustrator to “Drag-Free Drift – Leader Design and Presentation Techniques for Fly Fishing” by J. Kissane.  Steve resides in Northern Colorado with his fly fishing wife, Renee, 3 dogs and 27 fly rods.
