A new year is upon and we have a great list of activities and speakers already in the works. We closed out the last year with a great December meeting. Our speaker was Rob Crandall of Water Time outfitters and he gave a great presentation about techniques for catching winter steelhead. In addition Phil Bartsch played Santa with every member receiving a sponsor gift certificate or a usable gift. We had a good turnout and all left in good cheer.
Looking at this month we have some neat things planned for you. First our speaker this. month is Joel Lafolette, from The Royal Treatment Fly Shop in West Linn, Oregon. Joel will be presenting a program he has been working on for months involving unique Trout fishing opportunities in the northwest. You do not want to miss this program.
Our next fish-a-long is potentially going to a neat outing on the Sandy River. Dave Kilhefner has graciously offered to let us fish for Steelhead from his property on the Sandy River. Lunch will be provided so be alert for additional details later this month. Of course things may have to change because of water conditions.
Fly tying will again kick off on Wednesday January 25th, 6:00 PM at the Royal Treatment Fly Shop. More details to follow.
Remember our sponsors by visiting their shops when you are in their area. Stop in and purchase something, book a trip, or just say hello and thank them for their support.
