Cancellation of the July Meeting

Sorry to have to change our plan but due to the upsurge in COVID-19 cases recently the board members voted to postpone any physically attended meeting.  Current thinking is nothing before September.  We will try rescheduling our guest speakers for another meeting.

Everybody take precautions out there to be safe.  Reports from those who have experienced the virus indicate you dont want to get ill.

Stay tuned and keep on fishing.

The good news – We plan to restatrt our scheduled meetings again on Wednesday July 22nd.  Bring your facemasks and practice social distancing and avoid handshakes to stay safe.

It has been a long time since many of us have seen each other.  Hopefully everyone has remained healthy.  There will be a follow-up positing here when the guest speaker is announced.  Hopefully many have been able to practice their social distancing by getting on the waters of your favorite fishng destinations and lots of news about the fishing can be shared when we meet.

Bring a lawn chair so we can sit in the lawn behind the VFW building, hopefully if we have good weather.

February 26 meeting- Tim Flagler presenting- Night Fishing for Monster Trout

Please Note- Special location for this month’s meetingFebruary 2020 Meeting

Tim’s presentation will be on fishing after dark. At certain times of the year, fishing after the sun goes down can be spectacular and the chances of hooking into a monster are better than any other part of the day. Fishing in the dark does take some getting used to but with a few tricks, some basic equipment and minor modifications to technique, it can be an absolute blast. The presentation will include a wealth of video shot recently and over the last couple of years and yes, it includes plenty of big fish.
