Mark Cooper, former Denver Bronco, hosts his annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Classic in Aspen/Basalt, Colorado. The 17th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Classic will be held on September 23-25, 2021.  Forty anglers in twenty boats and their guides float the beautiful Roaring Fork & the Colorado River, alternating each day.  The two-day "To Catch The Cure" tournament again should raise approximately $35K+ for Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States.

The Aspen/Basalt competition is part of The Redbone@Large Celebrity Tournament Series, founded by Gary Ellis in the Florida Keys over 25+ years ago after his daughter was diagnosed with CF. The series has grown from one tournament to over twenty-five tournaments worldwide.  Mark also participates in numerous Redbone Tournaments throughout the year as an angler.


The competition in Aspen/Basalt is a strict catch-and-release, point accumulation tournament for Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout.

Participants compete for awesome artwork. One doesn't have to be an accomplished fisherman-woman to participate. The Best guides in the valley provide all the equipment and professional instruction. Some of our guests only fly fish once a year and catch a lot of fish.

The cost for one boat (two anglers) is $3,000, individual angler entries welcome at $1,500 and this includes a Continental breakfast and lunch each day, a Thursday evening kick-off reception/guide meeting at the Tipsy Trout Restaurant, sit down dinner Friday night and then an awards banquet Saturday afternoon in Basalt right after you get off the river at the Tipsy Trout Restaurant again, so you can get out on the town Saturday night. So two great days of fishing with outstanding guides. (Approximately $900 is tax deductable)
