What Are Your Plans for Spring?

Take Up Fly Fishing

Forgive us for saying so, but it seemed like for quite some time, fly fishing was anything but a young person’s game. Thankfully, in this day and age, fly fishing is a sport that is more accessible than ever! There are a number of nearby places that offer free classes on the basics, and you can learn about everything from the different parts of a fly rod setup to how to tie a fly to your line to which gear you’ll need as a beginner.

Once you’ve decided that fly fishing is for you, you’re in luck, because Colorado is home to a number of rivers, streams, ponds, and lakes for you to practice on. Just be sure that you get a fishing license, and you’re all set! Whether you’re planning to keep your catch and bring it back to your apartment to grill on the barbecue grill in our outdoor space or you’d rather catch and release, you’re sure to have a blast learning the ins and outs of one of the oldest sports around. Perhaps the best part of fly fishing is that it’s a hobby that you can dive into as deep as you’d like, because there’s always something new to learn.

Join a Softball League

Have you been inspired by the homeruns that Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have been hitting for the Rockies lately? Watching one of the Blake Street Bombers take a ball deep is a thing of beauty, and it can really start to make a person want to get out there and take a few swings. What better way to do that than with a local softball league?

Fort Collins is home to many different leagues for you to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for a wood bat league, a men’s league, a women’s league, or a coed league, there are plenty of options in our neck of the woods. Registration ends soon, so if you’re interested, now is the time to do your research. Either way, you’re sure to have a blast! After all, is there anything more quintessentially spring than baseball — or in this case softball?

Enjoy Some New Hikes

One of the coolest things about living in Fort Collins is that we have access to a number of different natural areas that are perfect for hiking. No matter your skill level, you can find a fun hike with a beautiful view. From Maxwell to Arapahoe Bend to Coyote Ridge to, yes, Horsetooth, there are plenty of great hiking spots you can enjoy all without leaving the comfort of our city.

If you are up for doing a bit of exploration, Colorado is home to countless hiking spots. There’s nothing quite like a day trip up to Estes Park for a nice hike, some incredible views, and a thoughtfully packed picnic lunch! If you are just itching to get outside and take in the wonderful Colorado scenery, there’s no better way to do it than with a hike.
