Bob Laskodi will be hosting a FREE seminar discussing shad tackle, techniques, and flies on Wednesday, March 24, 2010, at 7:00 PM at the Moreland Apartments Community Room at the corner of Payne and Saratoga in San Jose (site of the monthly meeting). If you have an interest in pursuing these little silver bullets on the fly, make sure you attend this informative seminar. The Club will be hosting two Fishouts this year for shad on the Sacramento River, on May 19 and May 23, so come on out to the seminar. For more details see Bob at the March meeting.
Hooking shad on a fly rod can be one of the most exhilarating experiences an angler can have. Shad average 2 to 3 pounds and their aggressive attempts to elude the net can make them fight as strong as much larger fish. They run hard, thrash ferociously, and leap out of the water with such velocity it's no wonder shad fishing is so thrilling.
This is one of the rare instances when 2 club functions are being held on the same evening. The fourth class of the Introductory Fly Tying Course is also being held on Wednesday, March 24, at the Winchester Plaza Conference Room. If you are attending the Fly Tying Class and don't want to miss out on the Shad Seminar, it would be a good idea to have a friend attend the Shad Seminar and take notes for you.
