Another great old day at Flatiron...

Bright sunny skies and a brisk wind greeted 2019 guests of the Loveland Fishing Club's Senior Derby at Flatiron Reservoir. About 70 anglers, most from area assisted living centers, enjoyed the day, and we cleaned and iced about 50 freshly stocked trout for take-home. To see more photos, follow this link. (You can download any or all of them to your own computer, or print a copy).
Prize winners for 2019 include
  • Jim Bair, 93, a World War II veteran of the Army Air Corps, for biggest fish, a 16 1/2 inch trout.
  • Bernie Chin, smallest fish
  • Jane McAfee, 93, oldest female angler
  • Floyd Schweiter, 98, oldest male angler
  • Marilyn Beavin, best fishing hat

After a slow start, catching got good.
Tom Miller cleaned about 50 fish to send home
with anglers.

Our oldest angler of the derby was Floyd Schweiter, 98.

Oldest female angler was Jane McAfee, 93.

Best fishing hat belonged to Marilyn Beavin.
