President’s Message December 2018

Wow the year is almost over. Happy Holidays from the board to you and your families.  It has been a different year with a tougher year for the Salmon and Steelhead returns, but other fisheries faired better.

Our November speaker, Jeff Morgan,  gave a great presentation on Winter Trout fishing.  He shared locations and techniques as well as some unique flies he had developed for winter fishing.  A lot notes were taken by many attendees.

This month we welcome back Gary Lewis a well known Northwest author on both hunting and fishing. Gary will share with us information on fishing in the Mt Hood area.  Gary will give us and entertaining and informative presentation so do not miss this one.

Don’t forget that every member who attends will receive a gift from Santa Phil.

We will not have a fish-a-long in December because of Christmas holidays.  We will begin again in January on the Sandy River  so stay tuned for more information.

Just another reminder that on Saturday 12/8/18 is the annual Metal Head Christmas party on the Fly Fishing Shop in Welches, Oregon. This is fun and educational so take some time to check it out.

Do not forget our sponsors as they are the lifeblood of our club. Stop by their shops to say hello and thank them for their support. Better yet buy something or book a trip to really underscore our gratitude for their support.

Gil Henderson
