All of these passionate fly fisherman had and in Joe’s case still have something exciting to look forward to.
We as a fly fishing club dealing with the pandemic have decided on some changes to give us something exciting to look foreword to in 2021.
This includes front loading outdoor activities for the remainder of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.
We have canceled all regular indoor meetings until Jan. 2021.
For the remainder of this year. We will continue our Friday morning casting practice and/or fishing.
We will have 2 Fly Fishing Derbies for members. The first is November 5th and the second will be on December 3rd at the Grand Oaks ponds. $2 entry fee and biggest fish gets the prize. Just show up(details on blog).
Starting in January morning business meetings 1st Wed. And Evening Presentation 3rd Wed. Will be in the Bridge Room with the usual precautions, and masks required until told otherwise.
Winterfest will be moved to November as a Fallfest and The Casting Tournament will replace Winterfest on January 27th. The Bass Tournament will be moved up to February 10th and the Spring Picnic(outside) will be March 24th.
More to follow as we get dates confirmed.
