Redbone's 10th Rocky Mountain Fly Classic

Help Medical Researchers ‘To Catch The Cure For CF’

 

September 15, 2013



The colors will be changing and the fall fishing could be at its best as 25 guided boats and 50 anglers take to two scenic rivers for the 10th annual Rocky Mountain Fly Celebrity Classic, Sept. 26-28, for rainbow and brown trout.

CATCH A CURE -- Former NFL Denver Bronco lineman Mark Cooper is hosting the Redbone's 10th annual Rocky Mountain Fly Classic, Sept. 26 - 28 near Aspen and Basalt. Colo. This charity event raises funds for cystic fibrosis medical researchers who are close to finding a possible cure for a large percentage -- approximately 80 percent -- of the CF population. Shown here are Guide Mike Thomas and Mark Cooper (plus Cooper's 36-inch rainbow trout!).

“It’s part of the Redbone@Large Celebrity Tournament Series, helping fund medical researchers “to catch the cure for CF,” said tournament host Mark Cooper. “We’re in Aspen and Basalt, the heart of the Rockies, floating the famous Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers.”

Cooper — a former NFL Denver Broncos’ lineman and celebrity in many of the Redbone’s 25 years of tournaments which began in the Florida Keys — helped start the Colorado event.

“You don't need to be an accomplished fly-fisher man or woman,” he said. “The guides do everything for you; they're the best. I call it Cadillac fishing,” he laughed. “You sit in a dory or raft, being rowed by these tremendous guides down two of Colorado’s most scenic rivers enjoying the beauty while the guides keep you targeted catching rainbows and browns.
