Conclave – 2011

The Conclave is the event we have all been waiting for.

The New Mexico Trout conclave is fast approaching and this year some very special guests have been invited to share their experiences, knowledge, and skills with our fraternity of fellow fly fishers.
The Guest Speakers are:

  • Baker Salsbury from the Westbank Anglers speaking about the greater Jackson Hole Area
  • Jay Murakoshi from California speaking about Baja Fly Fishing and bass fishing with a fly
  • Van Beacham from NM, author of “The Fly Fisher’s Guide to NM” giving a talk about Wyoming-Green River Area

Don’t miss out on this years Conclave raffle either. Eric Collins has done an awesome job of having some of the prizes vying for your attention. Reels, lines, flies, books, fly tying kits, rods, guided trips, clothes, youth only raffle, and many goodies for your fly fishing repertoire.

The conclave will be held at our perennial location at SANDIA PREP on Osuna Blvd. This year the event starts exactly at 8:00am and runs through the whole day. In this issue there is a calendar of events, so bring it along and figure out which is the best show to attend. Look for the sign’s for the NEW MEXICO TROUT CONCLAVE.

There will be opportunities to win all sorts of fishing gear and goodies, as well as a nice selection of related items.

  • This Conclave’s offerings will include top quality fly rod and reel combos, a large selection of lines, boxes and boxes of flies, a float tube or two, fishing vests, and outerwear.
  • In addition to fishing gear, how about a trip to Alaska for guided steelhead fishing, or a stay in a bed and breakfast alongside the Rio Costilla at the mouth of New Mexico’s Valles Vidal?
  • How do those people consistently catch huge fish all day at the San Juan? We’ll be raffling guided trips to our world famous river where the lucky recipients will learn the tricks and techniques of fishing this premier tail water fishery.
