Flycasters next meeting is on Wednesday May 11 - Back on our usual schedule - the sedond Wednesday of the month - which will make it feel like it is coming up a little sooner than usual. And at our usual spot, of course, the Moreland Apts meeting room at the northeast corner of Payne and Saratoga Ave. Doors open at 6:30pm and the meeting will begin at 7:15
The program for May will be California Heritage Trout by Bob Laskodi.
Bob Laskodi will present the details on California's Heritage Trout.
Come find out what these trout are, why they're important, how to find them, what fly tackle you need, and what you need to accomplish in order to get your very own California Hertitage Trout Challenge Certificate.
It will also be a perfect opportunity to sign up for the upcoming seminars, casting clinics, and all the upcoming summer fishouts.
It takes a lot of help to make our annual Marty Seldon Conservation Fundraiser and Awards Dinner the success it is every year. We rely on the generous donations of our conservation partners to help raise the money it takes to fulfill our conservation commitments.
Please remember these donors when you are considering fly fishing trips, gear, clothes, or even a fun night out. By supporting them, you are completing the cycle of supporting our own Conservation Committee.
For the complete Conservation Donors List go to the Partners menu above.
Each donor has provided a hyper-link for you to use to check out their goods and services.
All of us at Flycasters are grateful for their continued and very generous support.
Flycasters is presenting its Fly Fishing 101 / New Member Seminar on Wednesday evening, April 27th, at the Moreland Apartments Meeting Room beginning at 7:00pm.
This presentation will cover fly rod/line setup, Rod actions, Reels, Flylines, leaders, tippets, fly types, entomology, general gear, etc. There will be a table or two with equipment for your review during the break.
Although this seminar is primarily for members new to fly fishing it might also be appropriate for those members who have slightly more experience.
This seminar is free and open to all members. You can even invite your friends along to see if they are interested in fly fishing.
Because of the amount of material being presented and to allow attendees the ability to review materials after the seminar, Mason Seim has graciously agreed to make copies of the presentation.
Flycasters has also planned a follow up day at the casting ponds - May 7th - from 10:00am to noon - for newcomers to ask questions and try out a variety of fly rods.
