Fly Fishing People: Colorado Governor Bill Ritter

January 12, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

It took Colorado Governor Bill Ritter only seven paragraphs to introduce an analogy from fly fishing into his official hopes for the upcoming year. Ritter described his plans to work with the legislature as much like his attitude when working a fly fishing stream: “Every time you cast a line, drop a fly onto the water or move to a new spot, there’s a new opportunity for a promising return. It is my hope that each of us approaches this session with a sense of hope, of promise, of the immense possibilities.” Text in the Rocky Mountain News.
