Welcome New Club Members!

A breezy Saturday set the scene for our intro to fly fishing class as 13 participants of all ages gathered with club members to explore the basics of fly fishing. Special thanks to Karen Keagy, Dena Mason, Mike Nicholson, Kara and Tim Costello, Jim Rich, Joe Balderson, Larry Schmidt, Ron Forbes and everyone who lent a hand this day. Congrats to Joe, our youngest participant who won the rod, reel and line setup. Looking forward to seeing everyone at club functions and on the water!

Breezy Fun!

Four of our new members and five veteran members gathered Sunday morning at Georgiana Slough in search of small mouth bass. Every participant had fish interactions with new member, Daniel landing his first fish ever! Taylor landed two fish. Amy went topwater with three and Bob had success below surface with three. Others caught, had bumps and bites and wrangled the wind to make this outing fun and adventurous! Special thanks to fishmeister Bill Beckett from Headwaters Fly Fishing for making sure everyone had what they needed and knew what and where to do ti!
