July 18 Speaker – Jay Nicholas

Jay Nicholas is a retired fisheries biologist. The facts read something like this: four decades a professional scientist; five decades a passionate angler; four decades a dedicated fly tyer; honored for fisheries science and conservation accomplishments; artist; author of a dozen self published books related to fly fishing, salmon conservation, and fishing culture; recent contributor to Steelheader’s Journal, Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Journal, and Salmon Trout Steeheader; featured in over a hundred You Tube videos on fly tying; regular contributor to the Oregon Fly Fishing Blog.

Most of his fishing experience is focused on steelhead and salmon in western Oregon, especially in the coastal rivers and (recently) the nearshore waters near Pacific City. Jay’s passion for all things related to fly fishing and fly tying is matched only by his passion for family. He lives in Corvallis and Pacific City Oregon.

It will be a great presentation you won’t want to miss!

Longtime member Bill Johnson passes

I’m sad to report longtime CFF member Bill Johnson passed away last week.

Bill loved being out on the water and was a long time, avid fly fisherman.

He valued conservation. The continued care of clean waters was important to him.

Bill enjoyed sharing and helping others with fly tying and fishing.

From his friend Nancy Dyke: often when I’m fishing I think of bits of wisdom from Bill “you wont catch fish if your fly isn’t in the water!”

He will be missed!

His obituary should be in the upcoming Sunday Oregonian.
