Fly of the Month Club (FOM) – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We’ve put together some commonly asked questions to give you more information about our Fly of the Month Club. If you have a question that you can’t find the answer to, please contact us at 720-962-6700.

  1. What is the inspiration behind Fly of the Month Club (FOM)?

Greg grew up in Summit County with a fly rod in hand. In the early 1970’s Colorado didn’t look like it does today, so Greg had plenty of space to practice and hone his fishing techniques. He helped his father lay brick during the day and spent his time-off exploring and fishing. The Snake River and Dillon Reservoir are where he spent most of his time but would occasionally get a ride over to the Blue River. Greg remembers catching hundreds of trout that he would throw back into the water and catch the next day. Today, Greg doesn’t frequent the river as much, but will never forget his roots and where the inspiration for his Fly of the Month Club (FOM) stemmed from.

  • How did FOM begin?

Approximately a decade ago, Greg’s nephews developed a passion for tying their own fishing flies. They produced such a high volume of flies that they decided to send a few to clients with a little diagram on how to use them. Clients enjoyed the unique, hand-made gift and it exploded into what we know as today – Fly of the Month Club (FOM). Each month, clients look forward to receiving their flies and the associated article.

  • Why do you have FOM when you’re a wealth manager?

Not only does Greg have historical ties to fly-fishing, but it’s something he’s passionate about to this day. It’s clear that anglers have different motivations that draw them back to the water. While many find allure in the peace and harmony nature provides, others may enjoy the sport because it reminds them of fishing with a cherished family member or friend. Greg likes to think of his club as a metaphor for retirement and enjoying your golden years. If you plan for retirement and effectively exploit the appropriate resources to meet your financial goals, you are more likely to spend your days on things you enjoy such as standing on a riverbank, catching fish.
